GMHBA Stadium’s most important asset gets a make over


  • Park Crescent Entry and Carpark closed to facilitate the resurface
  • First resurface in 9 years
  • 2000m3 of soil and turf removed from GMHBA Stadium
  • Irrigation and sprinkler system replaced
  • Local landscapers will recycle turf following resurfacing

Australia’s best regional stadium is about to get better. Beginning on Monday October 15, GMHBA Stadium will have its first resurface in nine years. It will take 10 days to remove the top layers of turf and soil and approximately six weeks to return to a state of use. To facilitate this resurfacing, the Park Crescent Entry and Parking Area will close to the public from Friday 5 October to Friday 2 November. This is to allow landscapers ample space to efficiently and effectively remove 2000m3 of turf and soil and completely replace the irrigation and sprinkler system.

Local landscapers will convert left over soil and turf into mulch, ensuring that the resurfacing process produces as little waste as possible.

We want to make sure GMHBA Stadium remains Australia’s Best Regional Stadium and is in top condition for summer events and the Geelong Cats return in the New Year.

The map below outlines the areas that will be closed off to the public between Friday 5 October and Friday 2 November.
