It copped a fair bit of flak when it was being built.
Many people in the community said the Veolia Arena was a huge waste of money (coming in at $7 million) and that it would not be used enough to justify such expense.
But the Veolia Arena and Grace-Millsom Centre are both proving their worth, especially in the colder months, with much patronage.
New figures show there are 68 events booked out there between now and the end of the year.
The entire Goulburn Recreation Area precinct becoming a busy hub of activity.
A council spokesperson said over the next six months there is a packed calendar of events, highlighting the potential of the facility which includes the Veolia Arena and Grace-Millsom Centre.
"Sixty-eight major events are booked in between now and Christmas, with these including diverse events such as the Lilac Time Ball, an Oktoberfest Beer Festival, State Hockey Championships, a Beach Boys Concert and more," the spokesperson said.
Goulburn Mulwaree Mayor Bob Kirk said it is fantastic to see the community taking advantage of the Recreation Area and that it is fulfilling the vision the council had originally set out for it over five years ago.
"We always knew the facility had great potential and it is pleasing to see such a great range of events coming to the region to use the Veolia Arena and Grace-Millsom Centre," Cr Kirk said.
"This weekend we had the Pictures and Popcorn event to kick off the school holidays.
"Events such as the indoor hockey also bring an economic boost to the region, while the Beach Boys concert and Oktoberfest will be new offerings for the Goulburn region that are sure to draw a crowd of both locals and visitors."
Other events on earlier this year included the Comic Con, the Goulburn Show, and Convoy 4 Kids, as well as the Rotary Swap Meet. These were all major events that drew large crowds.
The Goulburn Recreation Area's 2020 calendar is also quickly filling up, with a scheduled Suncorp Super Netball Pre-season game between the NSW Swifts and Sydney Giants, an Australian Street Rod Nationals event as well.
