The Need

A indoor sports stadium is the crucial 'missing link' in Deakin University's Waurn Ponds Sports Precinct - which already boasts an MCG-size AFL oval, synthetic FIFA-grade soccer pitch, an eight-lane IAAF-accredited 400-metre athletics track, a 50-metre long-jump track and sandpits and a new high-quality baseball diamond.

Next week’s federal election polling day is the finish line for what many would consider a marathon campaign.

That is especially so given the federal election came hot-on-the-heels of last November’s state election.

G21 had long been preparing for both the state and federal elections.

For the federal election, over the past few years G21 has met with the Prime Minister, Opposition Leader, ministers, shadow ministers and senior advisers, explained the region’s priority projects, and why they are important to our future.
