Paradise Lagoons Val & Tom Acton MBE Memorial Complex

Rockhampton, Queensland

The purpose designed and constructed Paradise Lagoons Camprdraft complex is the finest horse sports facility in Australia. The Central Queensland complex was the dream of Graeme Acton, who was determined to take the Australian grown sport of campdrafting to a new level for competitors and spectators.

Graeme and his brother and business partner, Evan turned that vision into a world class venue featuring three campdraft arenas and a cutting arena, supported by well designed infrastructure for competitors, sponsors and spectators, event and support staff, and cattle management.

The Val & Tom Acton MBE Memorial Complex was officially opened on Friday 2 May, 2003 by the Hon. John Anderson MP, Deputy Prime Minister of Australia and Ed McCormack President of the Australian Campdraft Association.

We lost Graeme in May 2014 in a tragic campdrafting accident at Clarke Creek in Queensland. And whilst his passing has left a large void in the rural community, those who knew him and even some that didn’t, will always be grateful for his vision, his enthusiasm, and what he has delivered for the thousands of people that love campdrafting.

Paradise Lagoons is not only a campdraft complex, it is also a very versatile venue surrounded with mountain views offering endless possibilities for any occasion whether it be a dream wedding, grandiose ball, memorable birthday, corporate meeting or sporting event. The venue offers several options to host events including the famous Lagoon and adjacent paddock and various facilities at the Complex including The Paradise Bar, The Stables, The Pavilion and The Lawns.
