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.


The venue is operating as a major recreation facility under the Public Health Order, which means anyone aged 16 years and over entering the site must be fully vaccinated and sign in via the Service NSW QR codes that will be placed around the venue. Children aged under 16 years of age who are not fully vaccinated are permitted to attend the venue but must be with a fully vaccinated adult who is a member of that person’s household.

Group bookings of fully vaccinated people (or children under 16 accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult from the same household) will be permitted.
