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.
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 park offers hours of fun. We will also be developing a new adventure playground and parkour site in 2021!
Parks and reserves
With over 80 parks and reserves, there is 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.
Our sporting club community is strong, offering a range of competitive and social teams for kids and adults. Whether is basketball, swimming, netball, cricket, footy or clay shooting – there is a friendly club waiting to welcome you to Wangaratta!
