Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre

Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre

Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre was the venue of swimming, diving, water polo and synchronised swimming competition during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games and today continues to host international, national, state and community competitions. Opened in 1994, the centre has also hosted several legs of the swimming and diving World Cups as well as the 1999 Pan Pacific Swimming Championships.

The centre has seating for 10,000 spectators on either side of the main pool. When it first opened, it had an equal amount of seating on either side of the pool, totalling 4,500 seats. For the Sydney 2000 Olympics, the seating on one side of the pool was increased dramatically to boost the total capacity to around 17,000. Following the Olympics, this side was reduced by about half to bring the total capacity back around the 10,000 mark.
