I did the Sydney Corporate Triathlon at Sydney International Regatta Centre, it was fantastic, the track was basically dead flat, so it is easy to run and ride. Lots of parking. I can absolutely see why they held the Rowing Olympics there. Great place to take the kids for a ride.

Built for the 2000 Sydney Olympics SIRC has hosted the Australian Rowing Championships for the last few years This week long regatta offers the spectator some great racing viewed either from the grandstand or from the bank on the other side which has plenty of shady trees

What a great spot to hold a sporting event. Plenty of parking seating under cover lots of nice walking tracks and places to run and water sports available for hire. There is a canteen and restaurant for food however a little pricey.

The concrete path around the lake is a good 5km walk around the water. Path is wide enough & has marked sides for pedestrians & cyclists. Toilets and plenty of parking onsite. Good for a mums walk with Oran's, little kids on bikes or scooters or even doing laps on the bike for teen or family fitness.

We visit the SIRC quite often during the regatta season as our daughter is a rower. The centre is purpose built however the seating is quite tired as are the toilets. It needs a bit of a spruce up.

This is one of my favourite places for long walks, they have water fonts available around the main lake and very decent toilets. Excellent place for biking, I didn't try the kayaking yet. Loads of birds and some may attack you. Besides beautiful nature, birds and a great place for train biking and running, not much more to see.

Had Christmas in July 2016 with a group of 40. Outlook over river is outstanding. Inside decor of restaurant very bland. Food OK, Xmas pudding & custard to die for. They make these on site. Parking good and access for mini buses to get close to door. Plenty of outside undercover benches & tables. Apparently the breakfast is very good,... More

This has to have the best cycle training track in Sydney. Each lap is 5 km, and there never seems to be too many riders on the track at any time. Plenty of parking.
