Welcome to the Latrobe Valley, your events destination.
The Latrobe Valley is comprised of Latrobe City, Baw Baw Shire and Wellington Shire, and has developed into a premier regional events precinct for all occasions. The area is not only beautiful and picturesque to visit, but is also a thriving events destination with world-class sporting facilities and amazing recreation infrastructure. The State Government has recently invested $80 million into the Latrobe Valley events precinct, with work being undertaken on a range of exciting sport and recreation projects. The Latrobe Valley has become a regional sporting hub of national significance, and we’d love you to explore some of our incredible facilities with our immersive virtual tours. In recent years, the Latrobe Valley has played host to a number of national sporting events such as Big Bash cricket matches, A-League and W-League fixtures, JLT Series AFL matches and much, much more. But it’s not just sport on offer. The Latrobe Valley events precinct also has incredible venues for cultural events such as festivals, concerts, car shows and so much more. With the expansive reach of Latrobe City, Baw Baw Shire and Wellington Shire combined, there’s no limit to the incredible events that the beautiful Latrobe Valley can accommodate.
