Cedar Mill Venues

As Cedar Mill began its first and most ambitious project, Cedar Mill Lake Macquarie, it became clear that many complexities lay ahead when delivering a world-class amphitheatre. Whilst fundamentally a civil project, principle company Winarch Capital started enlisting industry experts from the event and music space. This was the birth of the Cedar Mill Venues. 

The Venues team are delivering the CMG vision of creating an internationally significant network of amphitheatre led entertainment precincts in Australia and New Zealand that enhances each of their region’s tourism potential. Venue locations which are currently in concept and development stages include Cedar Mill Lake Macquarie, Cedar Mill Hunter Valley and Cedar Mill Yarra Valley.

Cedar Mill Venues – Greater Entertainment for Greater Sydney proposal

Created by Cedar Mill Group, with urban planning consultancy Hatch Roberts Day and research by Sound Diplomacy, the business case analyses Sydney’s need for permanent entertainment offerings and lays out the economic, cultural and community benefits that performance shells would deliver to the city.

Cedar Mill Group, with the support of Business Sydney and Business Western Sydney, have put forward an exciting proposal for the creation of three permanent performance shells across Greater Sydney in Sydney’s CBD, The Crescent in Parramatta Park, and South Creek Park in Bradfield.

Greater Entertainment for Greater Sydney

The Domain Eastern Harbour City

The Domain Shell will transition the current temporary stage used for annual events to a permanent structure that enhances the Domain’s historic setting, while accelerating the Harbour CBD’s transition from a business district to multi layered cultural destination.

Parramatta Park Central River City

Upgrading the successful Crescent outdoor space will be the next step in Parramatta Park’s transformation into a  great City Park. The Crescent Shell will complement the emerging Paramatta  River Cultural Precinct, as part of the evolving cultural offer in Australia’s fastest-growing city.

South Creek Park Western Parkland City

Anchoring Sydney’s newest city centre in Bradfield and activating the new city-scale South Creek Park, the Bradfield Shell will reflect the Western Parkland City’s Indigenous heritage and focus on innovation, creating one of the  Asia-Pacific’s most competitive venues for major outdoor events.
