The canteen will be open with hot food, snacks, as well as hot and cold drinks.

The club has transponders for hire, but only 10, so sharing will be necessary. We have a buddy system with some of our members to help with this. If you have your own transponder, please be aware that we can only support the older system and cannot use the newest RC4 (three wire).. The RC4 Hybrid (two wire) is fine.

Full power, potable water and toilet facilities are available. So just bring an extension cord.

Practise days and Tuesday night racing are held on alternate Tuesdays from 4.30-7.30pm.

Goods Shed Markets @ Goods Shed
May 7 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

The “shed” was once the bustling heart of the town, where the steam trains of old pulled right in to unload their cargo. One of the features of the building are the massive jarrah beams of a size that are rarely seen today.

Browse around the many stalls of cakes, books, plants, crafts, fruit, cakes, sheep manure, etc.

View the railway interpretive display in the ticket office or enjoy morning tea in the “Coach Café”, a restored dining car.
