Old Sydney Showground

The Sydney Showground was situated right next to the Sydney Cricket Ground and Sydney Football Stadium. It played host to many sporting events and cultural events such as the Royal Easter Show. Many Soccer internationals were played at the ground as was the World Series Cricket in the mid 1970's.

Motor Racing was a big part of the Sydney Showground with many events held at the venue over the years. The record crowd at the venue is believed to be around 50,000. In the late 90's, the Sydney Showground was no longer needed, it was an old, tired venue, and due to all the new facilities out at Homebush Bay, the venue was bulldozed. It now forms part of the Sydney Fox Studios, with the main members stand kept and converted into offices.
