The Sydney International Regatta Centre (SIRC) is one of Sydney’s most versatile sporting and recreation facilities. Home to one of the best rowing and sprint kayak courses in the world, the Centre won international acclaim while hosting the canoeing (sprint) and rowing during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
Set on 196 hectares of native and landscaped parkland the Centre is now a popular sporting, corporate and social venue and receives an average of 50 000 visitors each month.
SIRC facilities are available for training and casual use for activities such as rowing, canoeing, sailing, kite boarding, swimming, cycling and walking.
The venue regularly hosts events such as rowing and canoeing regattas, special water-based events such as fishing, sailing and dragon-boat races, triathlons, swimming, cycling, runs, car shows, conferences and seminars, community events and festivals.
SIRC is open to the public seven days a week (dependant on event requirements). The Centre is located in Penrith, 44km west of Sydney Olympic Park, Homebush Bay, and within one hours drive of Sydney’s central business district.
