The Victorian Government is harnessing the social and economic benefits our cultural, sport and recreation amenities bring.

Regardless of its size or standing, any activity requires suitable facilities. These must be planned and built, maintained, upgraded and fully utilised. Government investment, private development and community involvement are all important inputs to this landscape.

This program of initiatives creates the climate required to extend our reach as Australia’s sporting and cultural capital and enhance the economic value of this vibrant sector.
