Geelong Saleyards

The Geelong Saleyards permanently closed to the sale of sheep and cattle on 31 August 2017.

The City will engage with operators of Geelong’s poultry sales to determine the future of sales at the site (sales will continue every Monday in the meantime), and with representatives of the livestock transport industry to determine the future of the facility’s truck wash. The truck wash will remain open in the meantime.

Following the permanent closure of the Geelong Saleyards to the sale of sheep and cattle, the City commenced preparation of a draft Geelong Saleyards Precinct Plan in consultation with stakeholders. The plan will provide strategic direction for the future land use of the site. The community will have an opportunity to provide feedback on the draft plan.
