The new course officially opened in March this year and is fast becoming a world class racing and training facility well ahead of its grade, with thanks to the team at Fleming’s.
The race club’s design features a long and impressive entry avenue 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 right from the start.
The avenue of trees was planted with mature specimens, which will establish quickly in their new home and develop into large trees that will radiate 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 touch.
Using a number of striking tree choices, including Japanese Elms (Ulmus parvifolia ‘Todd’), Acmena Smithii, and the introduction of the Tupelo tree (Nyssa) called ‘Forum’, this course shines with both exotics and natives alike.
Special landscaping features include the clever use of wood and corten steel panels to create an impressive fencing feature near the entry to the events centre. This feature will welcome guests to the races as well as to private events such as weddings and corporate functions.
As the facility continues to evolve and establish further, Fleming’s are working hard to ensure the new course will be a heritage site that will grow to become even more beautiful as the landscape matures in the coming the years.
