We went one afternoon and it was overcrowded and bursting at the seams. The children's pool was closed within minutes of us arriving, due to a child having an accident in there because they had no swim nappy on. The changing rooms were dirty and not pleasant to use. Really sad as this has great prospects if a little more... More

Attended Sydney International Aquatic Centre for a NSW State Schools Competition. The venue is fantastic with plenty of seating for swimmers and spectators. The view from seating which was above the pool area was great and the diving pool, warm up and main pool was quite visible from all seating. The only problem was trying to get food. With the...

We got here early for our trapeze class with Circus Arts and watched a bit of a youth swim and dive meet. We weren't dressed to swim (they have a posted dress code), but even if we'd wanted to, there wasn't room in any of the pools. If you want to swim, be sure to check the schedule first. Regardless,...

The kids attended the 1.5 hr session diving clinic in school holidays. The guy teaching was very good & had them diving off the 10m board by the end of the session. The kids loved it & had a great time...he even puts the bubble on so they can't hurt themselves when they land in the water. .. Not too... More

Visited once again Friday 1st July morning. First time for my nephews who were blown away by the size of the place. Lots of facilities including an indoor water playground and slide which unfortunately didn't open until 3pm, which was a bummer for my nephews since we'd arrived at 11am, and unfortunately had the rest of the day booked out...

This is probably the best Athletic facility in Australia. You can get a feel for the size and scope of the venue on U-TUBE. It is well located with accommodation of all levels within walking distance. All the facilities of Olympic Park are all around you. It has appropriate facilities if you are to be there all day. The access... More
