Venues and property

Canberra’s celebrated events are made all the more special by our world class venues. The ACT Government works to deliver venues that can play host to a wide range of local, national and international events to delight Canberrans and visitors alike.

World-class venues

900,000 visitors will use Canberra’s 6 government-owned aquatic centres this year.

The ACT Government manages and operates many of Canberra’s significant cultural, sporting and entertainment venues, including GIO Stadium, Manuka Oval, Exhibition Park, Albert Hall and the National Arboretum.

Over 490 major events will be held in ACT Government venues this year, from Raiders and Brumbies games to the Summernats and national mountain biking events.

More environmentally friendly venues. Consistent with our commitment to power the ACT with 100 per cent renewable electricity by 2020, the National Arboretum Works and Horticultural depots are now fully solar powered.

In this budget: new tracks & trails from the Arboretum to the CBD, new turf, better player facilities & a new big screen at GIO stadium.
