Goulburn will soon be the home to a new motocross facility following the efforts of the Goulburn Motorcycle Club. The new Moto Park will come after years of work by the club to allow them to open the facility for junior and senior motocross events and for use by the general public and the wider racing community.

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman today said the NSW Government’s significant $491,284 investment in the club will assist construction and completion of a moto park, thanks to the Stronger Country Communities Fund.

“The Goulburn Motor Cycle Club have been working very had the construction of a moto park for the past two years. This grant will allow the club to open their facility to the public for recreational riding, as well as extending opportunities to the wider racing community to bring training, coaching and competitions to Goulburn”, Mrs Tuckerman said.

“The Moto Park will be sure to be a drawcard for residents of Goulburn and the wider motorcycle community, providing a safe and controlled environment for training, coaching and competitions.

The new Moto Park will include a clubhouse and canteen and new landscaping around the tracks to help reduce run off onto the track and improve the look of the facility. The club is also hoping to open the park up for use by other end users including disability activities and training for rural off-road 2- and 4-wheel bikes.

Vice President of the Goulburn Motor Cycle Club, Andrew Rowlands welcomed the funding from the NSW Government.

“The grant will allow the club to open the junior & senior motocross facility to the general public for recreational riding and for the wider racing community. The main objective for the facility is to provide a safe controlled outdoor recreational area to improve the wellbeing of the residents in Goulburn by providing a facility for all abilities,” Mr Rowlands said.

The $400 million Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the NSW Government’s $1.7 billion Regional Growth Fund, which is being invested in local programs and infrastructure that improve the lives of people living in regional NSW.
