ABOUT the venue

VENUE

Important: Uriarra Rd, Stromlo ACT 2611 – Western Carpark
Note: we are not based at the main Stromlo car park. You can park there if you wish and can ride to the top of Double Dissolution, if you wish.

EVENT HUB:

The Event Hub will be located up the fire road at the intersection of Pork Barrel track and the start of the Double Dissolution track. Please follow the yellow signs.

PARKING:

Stromlo Forest Park has permitted us to park people inside the gate and so we will parallel park on the side of the following fire roads near the event hub: North South Link, Forest Trail and Reservoir Link Track. Fire roads will be two way so park carefully to ensure the road remains open for vehicles to depart at the end of the day. 

If you do not intend to stay for the entire day please park outside the gate in the Western Car Park and/or along Uriarra Rd. Please follow the directions of the parking marshalls. The gate will be closed during racing.
