At five acres in size and with a one kilometre fence line perimeter it also proudly boasts the largest showgrounds arena to be found in the state including Melbourne.
Each year the showgrounds caters to more than half a million people and is one of Bendigo’s most utilised facilities hosting 49 community Sunday markets each year that attract some 10,000 people each week and other major events such as the Australian Sheep and Wool Show, Bendigo National Swap Meet and the ground’s premier event the Bendigo Agricultural Show.
