About Sydney Olympic Park

Sydney Olympic Park is a major sporting and entertainment venue situated in the city’s west, an easy ferry ride or train trip away from the city centre. Redeveloped for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, the precinct may be synonymous with sports and large scale events, but you’ll also discover beautiful parklands, family friendly activities and delicious food.

Home to a collection of venues, from ANZ Stadium and Sydney Showground, to athletic, tennis, hockey, archery and aquatic centres, there are plenty of major sporting matches and competitions staged within the park throughout the year. See local and international athletes compete for titles across disciplines such as tennis, soccer, rugby league, rugby union and AFL. Sydney Olympic Park also hosts performances by talented musicians and entertainers, with concerts and stage shows taking place year-round.

Since 1998, the Sydney Royal Easter Show is held annually in Sydney Olympic Park, bringing with it a variety of agricultural displays, exhilarating rides and all manner of treat-filled showbags. A fun family day out, the Sydney Royal Easter Show exhibits the fine produce, livestock and crafts of New South Wales’ diverse regions.

With 40 hectares of wetlands, meadows, rolling hills and open spaces, there is plenty to do and see within Bicentennial Park, the popular recreational area bordering Sydney Olympic Park. Explore as you follow the walking and bicycle tracks that weave their way through the park, settle in for a picnic with family or friends, or let the kids run wild during a visit to the park’s adventure playground.

Take the family out for a meal at one of the precinct’s many eateries or enjoy a quick bite to eat before you head to one of the major venues nearby. Ranging from casual cafes to brasserie and bar-style dining, there are plenty of food options in Sydney Olympic Park. Sink your teeth into a juicy steak, enjoy takeaway delights or sample authentic flavours at a choice of international favourites such as Hi Thai, Piccolo Roma and Kokoro Sushi Bar. Visit Pau Brasil for a taste of authentic South American fare, catch up with friends over coffee under the historic ceilings of Abattoir Blues or enjoy a tender cut of meat at the aptly named Ribs and Rumps Sydney Olympic Park.
