Venue & Accommodation

2024 SASPA Annual Conference

  • Morphettville Event Centre
  • 22nd & 23rd August 2024


For more than a century Morphettville has been a place where South Australians have congregated to dress-up, play-up and celebrate. Whether to cheer Black Caviar down the home straight or dance under the setting sun trackside after the Adelaide Cup, Morphettville has been home to the majesty and magic of the sport of kings.

Now, on the eve of its 150th year, Morphettville is undergoing its largest transformation ever–a $350 million redevelopment that positions it at the centre of the community…as a place for everyone. While Morphettville has long been the beating heart of South Australian horse racing, it will soon be so much more. A residential address, an entertainment venue, a destination. And the home of a century old sporting club.

Cleverly appointed and stunningly contemporary, Morphettville’s Event Centre has a versatile and functional interior impactfully housed throughout two levels, and uniquely complemented by stellar views of the Morphettville racecourse and the picturesque Adelaide Hills.

Available for bookings 365 days a year, guests will delight in experiencing the incomparable fusion of iconic South Australian produce, landscapes and best-in-class hospitality. From intimate gatherings through to large-scale occasions, we look forward to welcoming groups from the local community, greater Adelaide, intrastate, interstate, and overseas visitors in order to live our vision of delivering vibrant, successful and sustainable experiences for all.
