Sydney Olympic Park is an area 15 km west from Sydney City. It is on western reaches of Sydney Harbour, and was the home of the 2000 Olympic Games.
The Sydney Olympic Park area, together with the surrounding areas on the Parramatta River including the neighbouring suburbs of Newington and Wentworth Point, a wide variety of sporting events, including athletic, aquatic, archery, Australian rules football, cricket, football, tennis, hockey, skateboarding and more. It is also home of open spaces and parks such as Bicentennial Park, Newington Armoury, Wentworth Common, Blaxland Riverside Park, Woo-La-Ra and Wilson Park.
The venues are also used for conferences, and music and family events, including the Royal Easter Show in April. When there are no events on, the area around the station and the main venues can become very quiet. At 6PM most evenings, you can have Olympic Boulevard largely to yourself.
Access to the area and to the parklands is free, although parking can be expensive.
