Tailem Bend "The Bend" Motorsport Park

The Bend Motorsport Park

Lake Albert Caravan Park (also known as Meningie Caravan Park) is located a short 25 minute drive from Tailem Bend and its world class, The Bend Motorsport Park which opened in April 2018. We offer affordable accommodation in either sites or cabins. Coorong Accommodation in Meningie.

Our passion for motorsport racing extends to us sponsoring a few catergories such as the entry level Hyundai Excel's and Meningie's lawn mower racing at the Meningie Hotel. Jacqui's nephew, Ash Bennett races in the Hyundai Excel with Lake Albert caravan park branding very visable.

In 2018 the Bend hosted its first V8 Supercar OTR SuperSprint, 24th-26th August which was a huge draw card to the Coorong region which was popular with many interstate and overseas tourists. https://www.thebend.com.au/

The Supercars in 2023 will race on the weekend 18th-20th August.

Late in 2023 The Bend Drag strip will open up with many top fuellers tipped to take in on.

For those who love to race, the Bend also has the fastest GoCarts in Australia.

The Meningie Hotel will host lawn mower racing (SALMRA) each June long weekend after its inaugural race meet in June 2018 which was a real crowd puller with people coming over to race as far as Western Australia and Victoria. (In 2023 the race has been moved forward to 13th of May.)

Please note: Due to COVID-19 events may be cancelled. Check with events organisers for further information.
