Top level footy and cricket (and probably other things) have been played at QEO since the 1890s.
It’s currently the home of Bendigo Football League clubs Sandhurst and South Bendigo.
Head of our Bendigo office Richard Jones was there recently to take photos of the new seating and took a snap of the scoreboard installed in 2012. A cricket game between Kangaroo Flat and Eaglehawk was going on.
scoreboardpressure.com co-founder Les Everett took photos of the grandstand in the late 1990s before his scoreboard obsession took over.
We’d love to see a photo of the old scoreboard.
