The State Cycling Centre is a new venue built for the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games. The 250m indoor velodrome is part of the new Darebin International Sports Complex which also includes the State Soccer Centre and State Lawn Bowls Centre.

The velodrome was built on the former site of the Northcote Velodrome. The new venue is Victoria's first perminent indoor cycling track. While Vodafone Arena is Victoria's premier track, it isn't a full-time cycling venue. Victoria's main annual cycling events will be shared between the two venues.

The new 500-seat centre will serve as a training facility for the 2006 Commonwealth Games.
