    An exciting milestone was reached on 10 December 2015 when the start of construction at the expanded Port Macquarie Regional Stadium was marked.

    The event was celebrated by Port Macquarie-Hastings Mayor Peter Besseling, Councillors, Council executive staff, Federal Member for Lyne Dr David Gillespie and excited sporting user groups and local residents. An artist's impression of the completed stadium was affixed to the exterior of the construction site by Mayor Peter Besseling and Dr Gillespie.

    The stadium is widely used by many groups including basketball, gymnastics, futsal, netball, volleyball and badminton. The new improved facilities will allow the Port Macquarie-Hastings region to showcase local, state and national talent bringing people from across our state into the area. This will provide benefits to not only the users of the stadium, but also to local businesses such as accommodation providers, restaurants and local shops
