This project is exciting for Bunbury because it will provide a high standard facility for two of Bunbury’s long-standing sporting clubs, increase capacity for training and player and coaching development, and enhance spectator experience.
It will also increase participation in sport, especially for females and people living with disability by providing an accessible facility.
This project is jointly funded by a $4 million contribution from the City, $650,000 from major supporter the State Government, through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and $50,000 from the Western Australian Cricket Association.
