Winton Motor Raceway


Winton Raceway is one of Australia's longest-standing permanent motorsport circuits. Established in 1961, Winton Raceway is based around ten kilometres north of Benalla and is owned by the Benalla Auto Club.

Each year, Winton hosts a diverse array of weekend motorsport events, which attract competitors from all over the country.

During the week, Winton is a valuable facility for testing, development and driver training.

Winton also offers weekly Test and Tune days for club-level motorsport enthusiasts to drive their race or road cars on the track, and Fun Days and V8 Race Experience packages to introduce people to the thrill of driving around a race track.

Benalla Migrant Camp Exhibition


Anyone who enjoys history and in particular the history of migration to Australia will find this exhibition fascinating. The Benalla Migrant Camp operated for 18 years, between 1949 and 1967 and is an integral part of post World War 2 migration to Australia, from European countries. The camp housed about 60,000 migrants during its operation.

Over 200 wonderful, personal photos dating from that time and contributed by the migrant families themselves will tell you in the most authentic way what life was like at the camp. You will be intrigued and moved, but also charmed by the honesty of these images.

The exhibition is housed in one of the original accommodation huts still located at Benalla Airport (Hut 11) and also features an array of items and memorabilia including the migrant camp school enrolment book as well as original suitcases and chests from the journey over to Australia, by ship.

Allow about 45 minutes for your visit and check the blog or Facebook for the next upcoming open day. Bookings can also be made ahead of time on days the exhibition is not normally open (but this incurs a charge).

Contact operator for more information.
