Sydney International Regatta Centre

A spectacular event venue for either 10 or 30,000 people, the Sydney International Regatta Centre offers superior event facilities and is one of the region’s premier outdoor sport and entertainment venues for both on and off the water.

Opening Hours

Sydney International Regatta Centre will be re-open to public recreation from Tuesday, 1 June as the recent Blue Green Algae bloom has now been cleared as over. There is still damage to the walking & cycle paths that will undergo repairs throughout June, and as such, the full loop remains unavailable. There are two turnaround points on the paths. Please do not enter any fenced off construction areas.
