The Lionsgate Business Park is the former General Motors Holden manufacturing site – the 123 hectare facility has been retained for manufacturing and is fast becoming a key part of South Australia’s defence ecosystem. With diverse heavily engineered buildings, an active security presence, immediate proximity to the Edinburgh Defence Precinct and ease of access to other key precincts it makes an ideal location for expanding businesses of any size. This tour will showcase the opportunities on site and allow a wider understanding of the importance of this site to South Australia.
