The off the track guide to the ASBK

The mi-bike Motorcycling Insurance Australian Superbike Championship presented by Motul (ASBK) is set to take place from the 5th – 7th of August at Morgan Park Raceway- not far from the historical town of Warwick, QLD in the Southern Downs area.

And while the racing will hold the attention of many, there is so much to see and do whilst in the area and wee thought we’d offer our thoughts on some great “other than racing” options during the weekend.

The most important part of visiting a new place is having a nice place to stay. The area surrounding Warwick has some amazing options of accommodation to suit the needs of everyone. As rated by previous travellers and ASBK regulars, these stays are in the top spot and are a great choice when coming to see the ASBK.

Abbey Boutique Hotel.
8 Locke Street (Cnr Dragon), Warwick QLD Australia.

There are plenty of options to choose from when spending the night in Warwick and the Big 4 Caravan Park is a perfect choice for families as it also offers a playground for the kids. All are just a short drive to the track, perfect for the race weekend.
