The versatility, value and importance of Melbourne Showgrounds has been on show again in recent weeks with multiple COVID-19 testing facilities in operation, alongside Victoria’s largest state-run vaccination centre.  

The COVID-19 testing facility at Melbourne Showgrounds is proudly recognised as the biggest and best in Victoria, operating out of two pavilions to maximise the number of Victorians that can be tested daily. Open 7 days a week from 8:00am to 8:00pm, the testing facilities can be accessed via Gate 3 on Langs Road.

The vaccination centre is also attracting a significant number of visitors to Melbourne Showgrounds.

Conveniently located in Building 4 at Melbourne Showgrounds, it is Victoria’s largest state-run vaccination centre and is open seven days a week from 8:30am – 4:30pm.

Free parking is available onsite with all vehicles and pedestrians advised to enter Melbourne Showgrounds via Gate 11, Epsom Rd, accessible via the Showgrounds Shopping Village.

Information on booking a vaccination appointment at Melbourne Showgrounds is available on the Governments Coronavirus website

The recently released Victorian Government’s Roadmap indicates that we will reach the key milestone of 70% of the eligible population being fully vaccinated by 26 October and 80% by 5 November.

As these milestones are progressively achieved, Melbourne Showgrounds will be able to recommence holding functions, weddings and events with an initial density quota of 1 person per 4 sqm.

One minor adjustment to COVID restrictions that was recently announced has enabled the use of the Melbourne Showgrounds Virtual Studio. Under current restrictions up to five people can attend the venue to broadcast a performance or presentation.

The Virtual Studio provides clients with a professional TV quality experience, with excellent sound and vision, managed by a professional tech team to broadcast a performance, class or concert.

To discuss opportunities to host a virtual event, call the Melbourne Showgrounds team on 03 9281 7444.
