Murray Regional Equestrian Centre

Project type Sport and recreation
Completion date Ongoing
Cost estimate To be determined


Secure the Murray Regional Equestrian Centre’s reputation as one of the top equestrian centres in Western Australia through the construction of new clubrooms and a covered arena. In turn, providing a high-quality venue that supports the equestrian needs of the Peel Region and beyond, drawing visitors from throughout the State and providing a central point for equestrian recreation in WA.


The equine industry is very important to the Peel Region with substantial economic impact and accounting for around 1,550 jobs (FTE). With a local love of horses, rapid population growth, continued availability of land and existing equine facilities, Murray has become a key location driving growth in this increasingly popular sector.

Murray Regional Equestrian Centre (MREC) is located in the heart of Murray. Thanks to an active community of volunteers and continual upgrades to grounds, MREC has been ranked as the top Equestrian Centre in the Peel Region.

Since 2012, MREC has received investment for new polocrosse fields, cross country course, large sand arena, installation of approximately 100 horse stalls, a wash down area, improved drainage, and user group storage.

Currently, nine equine clubs representing eight equestrian disciplines operate at MREC. The grounds can also be hired for equestrian events of all sizes and disciplines.

To reflect current user needs and future aspirations, the Shire of Murray is seeking funds to allow the construction of clubrooms and a covered arena.

The clubrooms will replace the existing small transportable style office and kitchen facilities, which are old and are not fit-for-purpose. The undercover arena will provide an improved experience for visitors, riders and horses, allow the facility to be used in all-weathers and reduce risk of injury to horse and rider.
