Upper Murray Events Centre

In May 2019, Minister for Regional Development Jaclyn Symes today announced the Labor Government will provide $800,000 towards the $2.5 million Upper Murray Events Centre to be built at the Corryong Recreation Reserve.

The development has been in planning since 2016, with Council advocating strongly to Federal and State Government for funding for the project. In addition to this $800,000 funding commitment, the Federal government has also contributed $800,000, with a further $600,000 in contributions from Council and $300,000 in community funds and in-kind support.

The Centre will host Federals Football Netball Club and Corryong Football Netball Club. It will also provide a valuable venue for the local Neighbourhood Centre, Historic Machinery Club, Draft Club, Men's Shed, Agricultural Pastoral Society, Lions Club and Rotary Club, as well as provide an important addition to the annual Man from Snowy River Festival, held in April each year.
