Opportunity to turn showground into major events venue

Establishing Morisset Showground as a regionally significant events venue capable of holding major festivals and events is among the options outlined in a new Council document aimed at guiding the site’s future.


The Issues and Opportunities Paper now on display for public feedback was drafted following community consultation last year, gauging the community’s priorities for the showground site, which has been in use since 1936.

Lake Macquarie City Council Manager Assets Management Brendan Callander said the showground boasted the size, location and access to transport links to support local and regional events.
