Sports & Recreation


The Wangaratta community love their sport and we are blessed an array of sports grounds and facilities to accommodate all sorts of activity.

The Wangaratta Sports and Events Precinct 

The Precinct is one of the premier sporting facilities in Regional Victoria, offering multiple fields for soccer, cricket and football. Our Sports and Aquatic Centre recently underwent a $16m makeover and features multiple indoor and outdoor pools, suitable for those up and coming competitive swimmers or those looking to cool off on a summer’s day. The Centre also has six squash courts and three basketball courts, and is proud to be the home of Wangaratta Basketball Incorporated and North East Bushrangers, who provide development pathways for talented athletes. Manu of our country Schools make use of the facility as well as boast their own incredible facilities. 

Skating and pump track 

If your kids love skating and bike riding, then Wangaratta is the place for them! Our new pump track and skate parks offer hours of fun. There is a new adventure playground at Apex Park and we will also be developing a parkour site in 2022!

Parks and reserves 

With over 80 parks and reserves, there are no shortage of places to take the family for a picnic or to burn off some energy.  Our extensive path and trail network provides multiple off-road cycling, running and walking routes, including the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail which offers 100km of sealed, off road riding. 

Sporting clubs

Our community has many strong sporting clubs offering a range of competitive and social teams for kids and adults. Whether it is basketball, swimming, netball, cricket, footy or clay shooting – there is a friendly club waiting to welcome you to Wangaratta!
