Tennis anyone? Or how about hockey, archery, bull riding, athletics, rugby, motor cross or even swimming… Sydney Olympic Park actually has it all.
As Australia's premier multi-use precinct, Sydney Olympic Park is a suburb 16 kilometres west of the city that was redeveloped for the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
Containing state-of-the-art facilities and luscious open spaces, it encompasses sports, entertainment and leisure and a wide variety of venues.
“Sydney Olympic Park is easily accessible thanks to its own Olympic Park train station”
Ranging from ANZ Stadium, Allphones Arena and the Sydney Showground to the Hockey Centre, Aquatic Centre, Athletic Centre, Sports Centre and Tennis Centre, there's plenty of spectator sport to choose from as well as events such as the Sydney Royal Easter Show and blockbuster concerts.
Still growing under a Master Plan, the vision is that by 2030, the Park will be home to a daily population of 50,000 residents, students and workers, alongside 10 million visitors every year.
The suburb also houses a substantial arts and cultural program including regular events, the largest single precinct public art collection in Australia, the Armoury Gallery which is the largest single room permanent art exhibition space in the Southern Hemisphere, a new theatre and an artist studio facility at Newington Armoury.
From accommodation near Sydney Olympic Park or elsewhere around Sydney, it is easily accessible thanks to its own Olympic Park train station, as well as ferry services to the nearby Sydney Olympic Park Ferry Wharf.
