The long-awaited opening of the Byron Regional Sport and Cultural Complex takes place this morning, followed by an opportunity for the community to tour the venue from 5pm to 8pm.

The complex will be opened by Byron mayor Jan Barham and Richmond MP Justine Elliot.

The building was funded by the federal government in 2009 to the tune of some $9.5 million

Ms Barham encouraged the community to attend the open evening to view the new complex, watch local sporting teams play and assess the potential for the complex to operate as a venue to host cultural events.

‘We now have the grounds, four walls and a roof and the complex will be defined over time by the interest and imagination of the community,’ she said.

There has already been ‘an outstanding community effort with hundreds of people coming along to participate in community engagement during the development of the complex, and many coming along to help out on tree planting days,’ she added.
