Under the Act, the NSW Government established authorities to manage land and venues for the State and specific regions of the State.
Venues NSW was established on 2 March 2012 following amendments to the Act to consolidate the responsibilities and operations of three previously separate statutory authorities.
On 14 March 2017, the Sporting Venues Amendment Act 2017 was assented to, allowing the Minister for Sport to sign the Vesting Order transferring the assets, rights and liabilities of Stadium Australia group of companies and trust to Venues NSW. This took effect on 13 April 2017.
On 6 April 2017, the Minister also signed consent to allow Venues NSW to operate on land owned by the Sydney Olympic Park Authority (in accordance with Section 21 (3) of the Act).
