A further $70,000 for upgrades to the Mudgee Showground has been announced, as part of the NSW Government COVID-19 stimulus package.
This will be used to fund construction of a car park and pathway.
And will complement the May anouncements of $61,000 to upgrade the kitchen in its Bridge Club building and $6,050 for Gulgong Showground for repairs and maintenance to electrical outlets and distribution boxes.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said showgrounds have been approved for upgrade work to improve the safety, use and condition of their infrastructure and support jobs in the local economy.
"Our showgrounds play an important role at the heart of our communities so I welcome this further investment by the NSW Government," Mr Saunders said.
"This latest work follows the announcement last month of $167,326 in improvement works to Trangie, Mudgee and Gulgong showgrounds.
"These upgrades will improve the safety, use and condition of showground infrastructure for future generations while supporting tradies and material suppliers."
The Dunedoo Showground - in the Upper Hunter electorate - received $24,128 to replace bi-fold doors on its function building.
Minister for Water, Property and Housing Melinda Pavey said the local showgrounds are among 153 across the state getting stimulus funding this financial year.
"The showground stimulus program is generating economic activity in local economies impacted by COVID-19 while supporting the long-term sustainability of showgrounds right across NSW," Minister Pavey said.
"Showgrounds are community hubs and multi-use facilities and these projects will improve safety and enhance community enjoyment by providing upgraded facilities to support a range of uses."
The NSW Government has allocated a further $10.77 million to its showground stimulus program bringing the total to $35.77 million across the state."
