Read our engagement summary report

In May and June of this year, we proactively engaged stakeholders and our Melbourne Showgrounds community to seek their comments as part of our master planning. We held workshops, interviews, briefings and received over 280 responses to our online survey. This feedback helps us to understand what people like about Melbourne Showgrounds, what’s working well, and where there is room for improvement.

You can now find a summary of what we heard throughout this first round of engagement in the document library.

We are now preparing the draft master plan and preparing it for presentation in the near future. Register for updates or keep an eye out on this website to find out how you can you can be involved. We look forward to hearing your feedback on our draft master plan.

Project background

The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) is developing a master plan for Melbourne Showgrounds to shape Our Showgrounds, Our Future.

The Andrews Labor Government has provided funding to the RASV to ensure the much-loved precinct can best serve the needs of Victorians now and for generations to come.

Our Showgrounds, Our Future will identify how the site can be improved to maximise its potential as a centre for agriculture, events, exhibitions, and wider community use.

It will look at options to upgrade or replace ageing infrastructure and how to best integrate transport, exhibition, and accommodation facilities into the precinct.

Thanks for your feedback

As part of the master plan, we invite visitors and participants, residents and the wider community to contribute their ideas. There are two key stages to provide your feedback on the development of the master plan.

In this first stage, we heard about your memories of Melbourne Showgrounds, what is important to you about the site, and what could be improved. We collected feedback through your stories, photos or your video via the website, from your survey responses and through face-to-face workshops and discussions with various stakeholders.

We are now analyzing your feedback to prepare a draft master plan. We plan to seek your feedback on the draft master plan later in the year.

We look forward to you helping us shape Our Showgrounds, Our Future.
