Greater Shepparton Leading Charge For 2030 Commonwealth Games

Greater Shepparton is spearheading a groundbreaking adventure for Victoria - 11 regional cities set to create a joint bid to host the 2030 Commonwealth Games.

A bid will need to be lodged by 2022 with Mt Buller likely to host Mountain Bike cycling races, Nagambie likely to host Rowing, Yarrawonga to host sailing, and Shepparton would host Athletics, Squash, Lawn Bowls, Men's Basketball, Triathlon and BMX events if Australia is selected.

Mayor Dinny Adem says temporary additions would need to be made at Victoria Park Lake and Lake Nagambie - upgrades needed at Mount Buller, Lake Mulwala, the Shepparton Sports Stadium and Shepparton Park Bowls Club - while a new sports precinct in Shepparton would host athletics events.
