Adelaide Showground Environmental credentials
Protecting and preserving the environment is a strong focus at the Adelaide Showground. The development of the eco-friendly Goyder Pavilion in 2008 included one of the largest solar panel installations in Australia ( over 10,000 solar panels capable of generating one megawatt of power) and 3.5 million litres of stormwater storage underground in the Jubilee Plaza, allowing use of stormwater for exhibition hall toilets and Showground irrigation. The Showground continues to introduce practices that manage energy and water usage, reduce waste and maximise its diversion from landfill and encourage recycling practices throughout the venue and its events. Environmental tours of the Showground, primarily the Goyder Pavilion rooftop, will be provided free of charge during the World Environment Fair.
