Learner Driver Program
We at Pheasant Wood passionately believe in the philosophy that all drivers should be confident and relatively capable behind the wheel before venturing into the traffic for the first time.
Learning to drive can be daunting for both parent and teenager, that’s why our Learner Driver programs invite both the parent and student from 12 years of age to learn how to drive, together.
Pheasant Wood is the perfect venue for your next event. Whether it be a Private Track Hire for just you and your friends, perhaps a ‘Thank You’ to your VIP customers or suppliers, a team bonding day or New Product Launch, the team at Pheasant Wood have the experience and passion to deliver on your vision.
Not only does Pheasant Wood boast a challenging International standard Race Track, we also have a 4×4 course and many dirt trails suitable for Mountain Bike or Running events.

Deputy 4 Hour Enduro
4 hours of fun, 8 rounds per year and lots of chances of silverware.
The Deputy 4 Hour is grassroots racing at its absolute finest. Fast, furious and fun, the 4 hour is undoubtedly the best value motor racing in Australia.
Have you and your mates got what it takes?
You’ll need two or more mates, a four seat car produced between 1986-2009 with an engine capacity of 2 litres or less. It must be fitted with a roll cage and four-point racing harness, and you’re in.
Many of our past teams have relied on equal parts strategy and skill rather than outright speed to stand on the podium and take home the trophy.
Deputy 4 Hour $725
Why we are called Pheasant Wood
Corporal Herbert Thomas Bolt, nicknamed “Nutsy” was Steve Shelley’s Great Grandfather.
Nutsy was killed in action on the 20th July 1916 in Fromelles, France, when the British called upon the Anzacs to help fight the Germans during WW1.
Nutsy left his young wife and new baby behind in Sydney and sailed to Egypt where he trained intensely for many months before arriving at the battlefront in France.
Nutsy had only one battle, he and his fellow hero’s contested Australia’s bloodiest ever fight resulting in over 5300 deaths or casualties within 12 hours.
Nutsy was a born fighter, a passionate footballer and boxer.
Corporal Frank Johnston fought alongside Nutsy on that terrible night, Frank survived and wrote this in his diary:
“Nutsy killed more than 6 Germans with his Bayonet and the butt of his rifle, when he got a bullet through the forehead. He fell instantly, being killed outright. He was as game as any man”
The baby Nutsy left behind was Steve’s Grandmother.
When Steve built the track he wanted to name it something very special for all to remember.
The Military Cemetery in Fromelles where Herbert Thomas Bolt is laid to rest, is called “Pheasant Wood”.
