Australia's finest track cycling venue is named after Dunc Gray, who won Australia's first cycling gold medal at Los Angeles in 1932. It's located in Bankstown, a colourful suburb in Sydney's west, known for its beautiful parks, gardens and reserves.

Set in a recreational park, the velodrome's elevated location and domed roof make it a landmark for the surrounding community. Inside, the curved 250-metre track is made from Baltic pine.

To provide a dazzling spectacle of lycra-clad racers, the metal decked roof has glazed central skylights, equipped with light-control louvres which optimise natural light and eliminate shadows on the track. Seats are arranged in an amphitheatre-style, with 3000 permanent seats raked to provide excellent sightlines.
