Situated 90km north of Melbourne CBD, in the town of Broadford, The State Motorcycle Sports Complex is a 96-hectare complex primarily used for motorcycle racing. The facility is also used for car testing, but car racing is limited to motorcycle engine vehicles.

Originally known as Reg Hunt Park, the property was purchased by Motorcycling Victoria in the 1970’s and turned it into State Motorcycle complex. The first built Motocross track was opened by  then Prime Minister of Australia, Malcom Fraser in 1975.

The Dirt Track was opened in 1988 and the Road Race Circuit in 1990. Various types of motorcycling and car activities and events are held at the site. Currently there are 8 tracks; three main and other smaller ones, and the facility is in the process of expanding its tracks further with the help of Mitchell Shire Council and Motorcycling Victoria, supported by the Victorian State Government. The aim is to host world class events at the centre. Motorcycling Victoria now owns 163.51ha across eight parcels of adjoining land. Parts of unused land is leased to other parties.
