Sydney Olympic Park houses several hotels.  However, these tend to book early due to events in the park.  Hotel searches should include the surrounding suburbs of Parramatta, Ryde, Rhodes, & Strathfield.  You can also stay in Sydney's CBD (in the city) and take the train into Sydney Olympic Park.  

Sydney Olympic Park is easily accessible by train with a station in the park and within close walking distance of the Sports Centre where the competition is held.   Additionally, numerous bus services pass through Sydney Olympic Park. Connecting bus services to Strathfield Station and Parramatta Station operate on regular weekday and weekend timetables.

There are several food & snack outlets located in the Sports Centre including a coffee and sandwich on the second level.  Additionally, in the arena there will be three food outlets open for light breakfast and lunch (including healthy options) on the upper level of the arena.

Teams may also pack a lunch from home, however NO TAKEAWAY/RESTAURANT purchased food may be brought into the venue (i.e. Macca’s, Subway, etc.)

Teams may choose to pre-order/purchase lunch packs directly from Venues Live (Olympic Park Catering).  Please contact:
