Lardner Park

World Jousting Tournaments were thrilled to hold our international championships at Lardner Park in 2019, and we will be returning for the Australasian Championships in 2021. Lardner Park is an evocative, magnificent and diverse facility that offers an impressive blend of wide-open spaces, pavilions and covered areas, conference facilities and catering services all against a stunning backdrop of the iconic rolling hills that characterise the Gippsland landscape. The teams at Lardner Park and Baw Baw Shire Council are flexible and worked alongside us to make our unique jousting event a success. With close to 10,000 attendees over the course of the weekend, there was ample parking, amenities and facilities to cater for everyone involved. We would highly recommend Lardner Park as their range of facilities and services can cater for almost any type of event, along with their convenient and accessible location just an hour from Melbourne.
