Funding available for Goulburn Sports Tourism events

Funding available for Goulburn Sports Tourism events
April 11, 2019

Goulburn Mulwaree Council has two streams of funding available under the Event Development Funding Policy. One stream is dedicating funding to Sports Tourism events, while the other supports the development of new and existing events in the region.

Demand for Goulburn as a host venue for regional and state-based sporting events is high, with demand for national events growing. Funding under this stream is available to attract, deliver, stage and promote a broad range of sporting events. 

 Incubator Event funding is available to new or existing events in the region to support their first three years of activity. The fund supports innovative events that demonstrate sound planning, have an alignment with the character and culture of the region and a broad appeal. 

Goulburn Railway Men’s and Women’s Bowling Clubs have both been successful applicants of Goulburn Mulwaree Council’s Event Development Funding. 

President of the Goulburn Railway Men’s Bowling Club, Reg Thoms said: “As standalone clubs we have to raise our own finances in order to run bowls tournaments in Goulburn.

“The sponsorship given to the clubs by Goulburn Mulwaree Council enables us to run our Annual Rose Tournaments and thus bring many visitors to our city from clubs across the state. The application process is very well structured with the staff concerned very helpful at all stages,” continued Thoms. 

A combination of both cash and in-kind support up to the value of $5,000 is available per event. Activities for which funding may be offered include, but are not limited to: venue hire, hire/use of Council resources, marketing and promotional activities, entertainment and research. 

Funding is open all year round and Council is now accepting applications for events occurring prior to 30th June 2019.
