Development Victoria is excited to be delivering upgrades at Bendigo Stadium and Bendigo Showgrounds - two of three projects included in the Bendigo Sports Package, announced this week as part of the Victorian Government’s Regional Sports Infrastructure Program.

“We are proud to be delivering upgrades to two venues that are an integral part of the Bendigo community.” said Development Victoria’s Group Head Civic Infrastructure, Hannah Clement.

The permanent upgrades will leave a sustainable legacy while supporting local businesses and creating employment opportunities during the project’s delivery.

Bendigo Stadium will see an expansion that includes a new two-court annex and upgrades to two existing courts. The project will also install lighting to the outdoor netball courts, while new solar panels, a backup generator, utility upgrades and improvements to the car park and accessibility will ensure local clubs have the facilities they need to play year-round.

This investment will attract even more sporting events to Bendigo – boosting local jobs, businesses, and the region’s economy.

A new multipurpose pavilion at Bendigo Showgrounds will draw visitors from far and wide to Bendigo. A redevelopment of the arena – plus upgrades to all four entrances and perimeter fencing – will see the Showgrounds remain a prime venue for cultural and agricultural events for years to come.

These projects will deliver a range of benefits for the region, including increased sports participation and will bring more events to regional Victoria, supporting local businesses and creating more local jobs.

Further updates on the projects will be provided in the coming months, with works expected to commence in 2025.
