Racing Locations

Hunter District runs all road racing at the Hunter Economic Zone (HEZ) Kurri Kurri. Our track racing is conducted at Newcastle Velodrome, located on the corner of Mellvile Rd and Chatham St Adamstown.

Road racing is held each Saturday afternoon at 2.00pm in Autumn and Winter and at 8:30 am Sunday Mornings in Summer. The course is undulating, but the road is fast and traffic free.

HEZ is at Leggetts Drive, Kurri Kurri, NSW. Directions and exact location can be found here through Google Maps.

The Newcastle Velodrome complex is a multi-use facility managed by the Newcastle Velodrome Trust and used by Hunter District for track, criterium and cyclocross racing. The velodrome is 200m long with fully angled concrete banks. Around the velodrome is the Mick Chapman Criterium circuit – a fast and modern 500m tarmac track in memory of a Hunter cycling legend. The grassy outer slope has been used for cyclocross – turned into a fun and muddy track.

Track racing is run at the velodrome during the summer track season, and training during off season along with other days through the week.

Newcastle Velodrome is located on the corner of Melville Road and Chatham Street, Broadmeadow. See it on Google Maps here.
