With its first class sporting infrastructure, spread of parks and reserves, walking trails and cycle ways it’s easy to see why Canberra has a strong sporting culture. Lake Burley Griffin is a popular venue for water sports, in particular, sailing, rowing, sailboarding and canoeing, with national competitive events regularly taking place on and around the lake. The Australian Institute of Sport is based here and organisations can take advantage of exceptional expertise and facilities when holding events there. Canberra has a brand new $27 million tennis centre, while just outside the city are a maze of trails offering some of the best mountain biking around.
Many top sporting events have chosen Canberra as their destination, including the FIH Masters Hockey World Cup for 2016 and the Under 19 Road Cycling Championships in 2016 and 2018. Contact Brendon Prout to find out how to bring your sporting event to Canberra.
