This was the venue for 800+ person convention dinner. The room was cavernous but well set out with good spacing between tables, a well sized dance floor and large stage area. Acoustics were good as were the projected images behind the stage. Food quality on...More

Went there for Local Govt conference dinner in the stadium. At first this seemed like a good idea. We were herded like cats down a race. Our quarter of the room had a light shining straight at us from the stage. We could not see...More

My children were expecting state of the art facilities but they were slightly dated. However the tour guides were very informative and open to questions. Over all very enjoyable

For anyone with an interest in sport it is well worth doing the tour. Hosted by AIS athletes, it provides a great insight into the training and facilities. As noted by some of the contributors the facilities are a little dated, but nothing too shabby....More

Paid $20 for the tour. The good aspect was that it was hosted by an athlete who 'lived' the AIS lifestyle. Interesting for a sneak peek. Facilities were highly disappointing. So old and barren. Only the swimming pool and advanced section appeared modern. Unfortunately the...More

Paid $20 for this tour of 90 minutes. It wasn't great. The first 35 minutes were spent in Sportex, which included some simulations and interactive displays, fine for children, but for older persons too long. Strange way to start, perhaps be better at end of...More

Family all enjoyed the interactive sports and the tour. Guides were knowledgeable and engaging. We would have liked to see the place in action...but still good and interesting. Would recommend for others to enjoy.

My husband, mother and 2 children went on the guided 90min tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Great behind the scenes look at the facilities and we all enjoyed the interactive Sportex floor (30 mins during your tour).

It was great seeing where Australian athletes train. Very interesting tour conducted by real athletes . Raises the question that we should spend more on training . Great facilities
