About Sydney Olympic Park
Sydney Olympic Park is a large sporting,
cultural and leisure complex in the Inner
West area of Sydney. It is also an official suburb
of Sydney, commonly known as Olympic Park
but officially named Sydney Olympic Park.
Sydney Olympic Park is located 16 kilometres
west of the Sydney central business district, in
the local government area of Auburn.
The Sydney Olympic Park area was
redeveloped for the 2000 Olympics. The
facilities built continue to be used for sporting
and cultural events, including the Sydney
Royal Easter Show, Sydney Festival,
Stereosonic, Big Day Out, Soundwave, Sydney
500 and a number of world-class sporting
fixtures. The Sydney Olympic Park also contains
commercial development and extensive
parklands. The area was originally part of the
suburb of Homebush Bay, but was designated a
suburb in its own right in 2009.
