Highlands Motorsport Park

Cnr SH 8 & Sandflat Road, Cromwell, New Zealand, 9342 - View the map


Since its opening in Easter 2013, Highlands Motorsport Park, has firmly established itself as the number one destination to visit in Central Otago.

Not only does Highlands boast an international standard motor racing circuit that is touted as being the best of its kind in Australasia, it has also firmly cemented itself as a must-visit tourist destination.

Highlands is without a doubt, unlike any other place you will visit, and while a passion for motorsport isn't necessary - a sense of adventure is!!! Highlands has something for everyone, the architecturally designed buildings located in a lush green park-like setting are worth seeing alone. It truly is a showpiece, and was created to be somewhere people can stop, relax, take their time and experience some real 'bucket-list' activities.

For those that are after an adrenaline rush, there are six different ways to experience the track at speed - choose from the FASTLaps Porsche or why not try the Lamborghini Fast Dash. The famous Highlands Taxi, is the ultimate way to explore the facility for the whole family (with some speed thrown in for good measure!). The Highlands go-karts are well worth a visit, race your friends and family and try to set the fastest lap time. For something a little different, visit our Jurassic Safari park. Choose from the tour, or test your off-road driving skills on our Safari Buggy Adventure.

For those after a more leisurely experience visit the quirky sculpture park, enjoy lunch at our on-site restaurant, The Nose, or discover renowned Central Otago wines with our wine experience.

It may say "motorsport", but Highlands is much more than that. It's a place that appeals to people of all ages and tastes - it truly does offer an 'Adventure for everyone'. Make Highlands top of your 'to-do' list when you are visiting the South..
