Fodor's Review

Aussies are obsessed with sport, so its no surprise that this 150-acre site, established to improve the performance of Australia's elite athletes, is such a big draw. Daily 1½-hour tours, some guided by AIS athletes, explore the state-of-the-art facilities, where you may be able to watch some of the institute's Olympic-caliber squads in training for archery, gymnastics, swimming, soccer, and other sports. The second half of the tour takes you through the Sports Visitors

Centre, where displays, hands-on exhibits, and a video wall show the achievements of Australian sporting stars. Afterward, you can use the tennis courts and other facilities for a fee.
