You can hire any one of the many meeting spaces, equine areas and ovals on an adhoc or regular basis.

Council staff can help you to arrange a small meeting, sporting or club activity, trade display or a large-scale event, festival or conference. Spaces can by hired by the hour or by the day, subject to availability.

Generally, bookings for meetings need to be made at least two weeks in advance and, for events and functions, applications need to be finalised at least one month prior to the event, and before you advertise the event. Hirers are required to hold public liability insurance.

Hire charges

Hire charges vary according to the status of your organisation and the purpose and duration of the proposed booking. For current fees and charges view council's fees and charges.

Additional spaces

Equine facilities are serviced by 196 stables, cattle yards, wash bays and shower and toilet facilities. Please telephone ahead if you wish to make a stable booking for an over-night stay.

There are also several buildings that exist which do not show on the list of available spaces, such as the Poultry Pavilion, Lapidary Building, Cricket Club House, Badminton Hall and underground training facility. These are hired with special conditions.

Please contact the Showgrounds Management Office to enquire about these additional spaces.

Note: You can see the availability of all equestrian arenas, or for more information, contact the showgrounds management office on 07 5476 2948.
