The MLT Event Centre
The MLT Event Centre is part of our multisports complex and is located in Wayland Street west, off Robertson Street. It was stage three of the complex and a substantial amount of funding for its construction was provided by the Mataura Licensing Trust, hence its name.
The event centre offers sporting and fitness activities all year round. There is one sprung wooden court and three synpave courts that can accommodate a variety of different sports, events and trade shows.
It is home to Eastern Southland netball during the winter, has hosted the Australian netball team and was the venue for the Skellerup Young Farmer of the Year final in 2010.
All Weather Hockey Turf
The Eastern Southland Hockey Association all weather turf provides excellent opportunities for advancement of the sport in Southland.
The Gore water turf utilises the same technology as that used at the Beijing Olympics which will put the venue in line to host national tournaments and international tests.
Playing Hockey on sand does provide a faster surface, but water turfs have a more consistent nature and allow players to slide and dive without fear of losing half their skin.
The turf is located in Wayland Park near the Gore Multi Sports Centre.
Gore Kids Hub
Gore Kids Hub provides a one-stop-shop of support services for families with children under the age of five years.
It supports the well being and education of adults and their children while the children learn, develop and form friendships, and encourages collaboration between organisations to ensure that families in the Gore District have access to everything they need to support them in their journey as a family.
At Gore Kids Hub, all groups will work collaboratively to provide a safe, secure, stimulating and fun environment where families are supported and encouraged to learn about and contribute to their children’s development.
Giving Back To The Community
Profits from hospitality sales are redirected into providing essential facilities for the region and financial support for community projects.
The Mataura Licensing Trust distributes all profits back to the local community by way of investment into high quality services and much needed facilities, and through financial support of community networks, sports clubs, music events, senior citizens, educational grants and a focus on well-being.
We help people and organisations by investing in local community projects where it is most needed and where it will make the most impact.
