Winter Gardens 2022

The Winter Gardens extension, and introduction of a new Convention and Exhibition Centre is on schedule for completion in late Autumn  2021. The challenges as a consequence of the Coronavirus Pandemic alongside the complexities of adding a new state of the art facility to a Victorian entertainment complex have provided their fair share of challenges. We look forward to its completion later in the year, and its new rooms and facilities will be incorporated into the 2022 Convention.

Please see for further information.


Details to be released.
