The Goulburn Motor Cycle Club is celebrating their improved community infrastructure as a result of funding from the NSW Governments Stronger Country Communities Fund.

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman spoke today at the Goulburn Motorcycle Club marking the celebration.

Mrs Tuckerman said the NSW Government’s significant $491,284 investment assisted construction and completion of the Goulburn Moto Park.

“The Goulburn Motor Cycle Club has been diligently working on this project for the improvement of their facilities for well over five years”, Mrs Tuckerman said.

“This grant has allowed 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”

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said since 2017, the Stronger Country Communities Fund has provided $500 million for more than 2,000 local projects across regional NSW.

“Locals across regional NSW are seeing the benefits of the Fund, with projects making a big difference to everyday life, from new playgrounds loved by kids to light towers illuminating sporting fields,” Mr Toole said.

“We are funding grassroots projects that make a real difference to each community, and we know how important it is to support our regional towns with new infrastructure and programs.”

Goulburn Motor Cycle Club was founded in 1911 and is currently the oldest club in Australia. GMCC was originally a motor club and has now transformed into a high adrenaline motocross and dirt track club. Goulburn Motor Cycle Club is for everyone, from the humble beginner to World Champions, from the 16-year-old hotshot schoolboy to the 80+year-old veteran.

The $500 million Stronger Country Communities Fund is part of the NSW Government’s Regional Growth Fund, which is being invested in local programs and infrastructure that improve the lives of people living in regional NSW.
