Where are we going today?
Unleash your wild side!
Get out onto the track at The Raceway which is set in a natural amphitheatre and beautiful bushland. Your circuit, should you choose to accept it, will take you through the forest with certain sections going up and downhill. It will certainly challenge you!
When you first get in that kart, imagine you are at the F1 with hoards of spectators surrounding you, cheering your name! Start your engines...and go!
The 1.1km of track is pure adrenaline. The track is actually very fast and flowing, so it requires and aggressive driving style for you to go fast!
For those little kids who won't be able to keep up with the karts, just 100m away from The Raceway have a refreshing water park that they can play in! Fun water slides to shoot down, as well as swimming and waters pools to splash about in on those hot summer days. (Don't forget your hat and sunscreen!)
As well as the fun water park there are 18 holes of putt putt golf where kids can take on their own personal best and try and get that hole in one! Bring some food, and grab one of the BBQ areas and make a whole day of it with lunch breaking up your activities.
Not enough? How about the "Big Foot" Tractor Ride? Suitable for kids 2 years and right up to adults, you get 20 exciting minutes travelling through the wildlife filled bushland, pasture land, and water courses!

The hotel doesnt look like much from the outside, but it has fresh paint and is well maintained. I was really impressed when I walked into the lobby and saw how clean everything was. I was greeted with a friendly smile and felt welcomed. I noticed a security TV which was monitoring the parking lot. I was charged for the hotel phone in my room, protested and the charge was promptly removed. The dining room is in the lobby and was nice, however, the continental breakfast was pretty sorry.

The hotel doesnt look like much from the outside, but it has fresh paint and is well maintained. I was really impressed when I walked into the lobby and saw how clean everything was. I was greeted with a friendly smile and felt welcomed. I noticed a security TV which was monitoring the parking lot. I was charged for the hotel phone in my room, protested and the charge was promptly removed. The dining room is in the lobby and was nice, however, the continental breakfast was pretty sorry. I stayed 4 days, but only ate there once. Considering the rate I paid $40 a night, Im surprised they offered breakfast at all though. Coffee, tea, punch, oj, frozen waffles, white bread, small bagels, corn flakes & generic fruit loops. Room was on the ground floor, 104, with two double beds, desk, dresser, table, two comfortable chairs, lg. TV. The only dirt I found was behind the end table around the plug. Well laid out and roomy. I stayed with 4 kids, brought my own playpen. Soap, shampoo and tissues provided. Enough towels. Bath towels were on the small side. It even had a sm fridge and micro. Maid service was great. Never woke us up. Even folded my clothes and straightened up our things. Beds were comfortable. I checked out the mattress and it looked new. Enough lights and a lg window. Wireless worked great. Great location down the street from lots of restaurants, Big Lots and Food Lion. Felt like it was a safe area. There was some noise, but not enough to really bother us. It looked like construction workers were staying here, but it wasnt a problem for me. The motel does have a standard rectanglular pool nothing special but would be nice in summer. Check out was fast. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Great value for the money and would definitely stay here again.
