The Queensland Harness Centre at Norwell (Gold Coast) is the most important development for the future of harness racing in Queensland and its participants.
The proposed new track will be 1100-meter and include a designated training center.
Industry feedback has indicated the desire for a 1000-metre track, that incorporates well-cambered turns, a sprint lane and a surface wide enough to accommodate 10 horses across the front row.
This masterplan provides the right balance between fast, fair and safe racing, whilst creating a brilliant spectacle for patrons to enjoy an up-close experience.
This design provides us as an industry the opportunity to create an Amphitheatre experience like no other in the sport.
