Sydney Olympic Park


Head to the Olympic Cauldron at Sydney Olympic Park and hit the pump track with your scooter, skateboard or BMX. Generate energy whilst you're burning some off.  Catch some of the X Games extreme sport stars shredding their stuff on the half-pipe.  Get the low down on drones, take-off on our flying simulators or talk with a Mars Rover expert from the USA! Don't miss the opportunity to kick the physics out of a footy or follow the nature discovery trail to save some endangered native species.

Sydney Olympic Park will again be buzzing with interactive displays, live stage shows, games, gadgets, film and food! Test your skills in family-friendly physical and mental challenges and maybe see yourself up on the big screen. Pat something spikey or slimy or scaly..... or tame a coffee and relax whilst others explore. Find out why studies in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) can lead to the coolest jobs around.
