Bookings for larger events such as carnivals, gala days, zone and regional competitions or trial games outside of normal seasonal use may require an application for an event on public land. Please contact our Open Spaces team on 1300 864 444 to discuss the best application pathway.

Wet weather and field closures

Field closures and cancellations are the responsibility and at the discretion of the sporting clubs and event organisers in the first instance to determine if the activity can be carried out safely and without damaging the field.

Sporting fields may be closed by Council due to wet weather, field conditions or during field renovations when required.  Club representatives or event organisers will be notified when this occurs.

Please contact your club or event organiser to confirm the status of your scheduled activity or game.
