Community sport clubs and organisations in Taralga are set to receive a boost, with the NSW Liberal and Nationals Government committing $1.1 million to build a new multi-purpose facility at Taralga Showground, if re-elected.

Premier Dominic Perrottet said the new facilities would better service the range of activities that provide for locals and attract visitors to Taralga Showground year round.

“The Liberal and Nationals long-term economic plan means we can continue to invest in community infrastructure and facilities like Taralga Showground,” Mr Perrottet said.

“This facility will be a fantastic community asset. Not only will it provide new amenities that the Taralga community has been crying out for many years, it will support local jobs, which will grow the economy and keep our state moving forward.”

Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said the new building would include female friendly and accessible amenities, as well as a storage room, kitchenette and multi-function area.

“Locals in and around Taralga understand how important Taralga Showground is to our local economy,” Mrs Tuckerman said.

“These new facilities will go a long way to support both local sport and the popular regional events such as our much loved agricultural show, rodeo, farmers markets and festivals.”

Adam Moloney from Taralga Agricultural, Pastoral and Horticultural Association said the new facilities would help to showcase the very best of a thriving agricultural sector.

“Our Taralga Showground events boast outstanding exhibits from agricultural producers across Goulburn,” Mr Moloney said.

“This investment will help to celebrate our critical agricultural sector, and ensure important agricultural, pastoral and horticultural events are supported now and into the future.”

Minister for Sport Alister Henskens said investments in community infrastructure like this are only possible because of the Liberal and Nationals Government’s long-term economic plan to keep NSW moving forward.

“The NSW Liberal and Nationals Government has invested more than $2 billion in grassroots community sports infrastructure and programs since 2017, and we continue to help build new facilities that strengthen our offerings for the State’s regional communities.”
