The new course, set to open at the end of March this year, will be a world-class racing and training facility and is ahead of its class with thanks to the team at Fleming’s.
Featuring a long and impressive avenue entry showcasing advanced plantings of Fraxinus pennsylvatica ‘Cimmaron’- a beautiful form of ash tree with a strong straight trunk and excellent branch structure - race-goers and centre users alike will be impressed from the very entry.
The avenues of trees - planted as a mature form - will quickly establish in their new home and will develop into large trees with a presence to match the magnitude of the site itself.
With the hands-on expertise of Australia’s highly awarded horticulturalist, Wes Fleming (OAM), this site has had the Fleming’s touch with a number of striking uses of trees including Japanese elm trees (Ulmus parvifolia ‘Todd’), Acmena smithii and a new introduction of Tupelo tree (Nyssa) called ‘Forum’ – the course will shine with both exotic and natives alike.
Landscape features also include the clever use of impressive wood and corten steel panels to create a fencing feature towards the entry of the events centre which will welcome guests both to the races as well as to private events such as weddings, corporate functions and more.
While the facility will continue to evolve and grow over time, Fleming’s is working to ensure the new course will be a heritage site that will establish to become more and more beautiful as the landscape matures over the years.
