The Sydney 2000 Olympics were built on a vision of the "Green Games" from the beginning.
From water reclamation and recycling to energy efficient residential and commercial buildings through to the management a diverse ecological space, Sydney Olympic Park achieved a 6 Star Green Star Communities rating (from the Green Building Council of Australia) and continues to be a leader in environmental sustainability.
This technically focused tour will take participants behind the scenes of a couple of our residential and/or commercial buildings and Australia’s first large-scale urban water treatment scheme, the Water Reclamation and Management System. The tour will highlight our architectural and sustainable successes and the future developments planned for the park.
The Behind the Scenes series is a set of tours run by Sydney Olympic Park delivered by qualified guides, subject experts and special guests. With more than 20 years having passed since the Sydney 2000 Olympics and Paralympics, the precinct is now a vibrant community with more reasons than ever to come and visit – Sydney Olympic Park: one park, many experiences.
The Behind the Scenes series will take you on a deep dive into the industrial and cultural heritage of the site, give an understanding of ecological and environmental considerations, and allow you to discover some of the stories and hidden layers that go beyond our sporting and entertainment venues. Locations such as Newington Armory and the Brickpit are reminders of the complex landscapes we manage, conserve and celebrate.
