Broadford Track is the popular name of State Motorcycle Complex in Victoria, Australia. It is located along Hume Freeway, approximately 88 kilometres (55 mi) from Melbourne near the town of Broadford.

Broadford Track

Opened in 1975, Broadford Road Circuit (there are 8 tracks in this 96 hectare complex) is 2.16 kilometres (1.34 mi) long and 10 metres (32.8 ft) wide within Reg Hunt Park. It is primarily used for motorcycle racing, but is also used for car testing, although car racing is restricted to motorcycle engined vehicles due to planning restrictions and the lack of a track circuit licence. It is located 88 kilometres (55 mi) north of Melbourne, on the Strath Creek Rd, Broadford (Just off Hume Freeway).

The State Motorcycle Complex also has a 400 metres (440 yd) Motorcycle speedway track. The track has hosted the Victorian Individual Speedway Championship on three occasions: 2002/03 won by Travis McGowan, 2005/06 won by Cameron Woodward and 2009/10 won by Ty Proctor. On the infield of the speedway is a 120 metres (130 yd) junior speedway track. The complex also includes a Motocross track.

In 2014 Motorcycle Victoria leased part of the unused land in the complex to Calibre Sports Inc. A handgun target shooting club who have setup a new range.
