FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SUPPORT FOR HARRUP PARK EXPANSION

PARTY IN THE PARK

We are delighted to inform you that the Federal Government has approved HPCC’s application to the Regional Growth Fund for a $10 million contribution to the Harrup Park expansion project to progress to the next and final round of assessment.

Federal Member for Dawson, George Christensen MP, announced the news at a media conference at Harrup Park on Friday morning.

The Federal Member said that high quality applications had been received across the electorate and nation for the $272 million fund, but only a limited few could be successful in progressing to the final stage.

“This is a pat on our back for our region. The project selected can drive economic growth and create jobs both immediately and in the longer term.

“Harrup Park has a visionary plan to build on their capacity to host major sporting events, particularly in the Cricket and AFL realm and they’re already establishing a great track record in this regard,” Christensen said.

The Club has been planning for the project for several years, which will deliver new spectator seating capacity and key media facilities that will support the continued attraction of big sporting events of high value to Mackay and region.

It will also provide new community amenities, female change rooms, player and official facilities, food and beverage facilities and increased parking.

Cricket Australia, Cricket Queensland and AFL Queensland are fully supportive of the project, with Cricket Australia ranking Harrup Park as the number one priority venue in regional Queensland.

Together with existing event commitments including AFL pre-season matches and WBBL games, this places Harrup Park in a great position to attract major sporting events to Mackay in the future.

The Club will continue to keep all Members informed on the status of this transformative project as we progress our efforts to realise the venue expansion with both State and Federal Government.

Harrup Park is staging the Party in the Park on the afternoon and evening of Saturday 17 November, with mega-popular band Thirsty Merc, a charity 20/20 cricket match featuring local heroes and state sporting stars and a delectable Eat Street Food Festival.

There will also be great kids’ activities and fireworks, but best of all, through the amazing support of Mackay Regional Council, local businesses and organisations, it is entirely free!

Don’t make any other plans and we hope to see you all there!
