To help you get around without missing a thing, we’ve compiled a checklist of destinations for you to strike your best pose at, while taking in all the wonders of our great region.

Here’s some top ideas to fill up your feed during your weekend at the SuperSprint.

How often do you have the chance to meet your hero? This is your chance to get up close and personal with your favourite supercar driver IRL! There’s Autograph sessions in the Paddock on the Saturday and Sunday of the event, pit lane walks and merchandise alley. 

A community day which will give you the chance to hang out with the drivers, get an autograph and a photo is being held on Saturday July 20 from 9am-12pm at Main St, Orion Springfield Central.

Stop by Rafter & Rose for coffee and cake amongst the botanicals.
