Historic showgrounds blueprint

The Nambour Showgrounds Master Plan 2023-2038 was endorsed at Council’s latest meeting, mapping a bright future for the venue, which held its first show in 1909. Division 10 Councillor David Law said the new master plan guided the use and development of the showgrounds for the next 15 years and beyond.


“The 2023-2038 master plan focusses on the role of the showgrounds as an events centre and a community and sports facility provider,” Cr Law said.

The focus is on nine key recommendations: Equestrian Precinct – significant upgrades to stables, parking and livestock space, parking, Main Pavilion – retention with some improvements, Lapidary Club – facilitate expansion opportunities, Ray Grace Pavilion – consideration for options to enhance the Ray Grace Pavilion’s role in providing trade and exhibition space. Plus functional improvements to the Badminton Hall, modifications to provide increased multi-use opportunities in the school building – undertake modifications to provide increased multi-use opportunities, the Wallace Building to be removed in the long-term and the ongoing function of the Nicklin building will be confirmed, and maintenance and functional improvements to the amenities and change rooms at the J.D. Grimes Grandstand.


Cr Law said allocations towards implementing master plan recommendations would be made through Council’s 10-year Capital Works Program, along with seeking external funding opportunities including grant applications and club contributions.
