Set on 196 hectares of native and landscaped parkland, Sydney International Regatta Centre is one of the best rowing and sprint kayak courses in the world. The Centre won international acclaim while hosting 825 athletes from 56 countries during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.

It has now been re-invented to become a popular water adventure park, sporting, corporate and social venue and receives an average of 50,000 visitors a month. Bike, canoe and kayak hire is available on site. Community fishing days are held most Tuesdays. The landscaped grounds, walking tracks and barbecues are open to the public daily from sunrise to sunset, subject to the requirements of scheduled events. Costs may apply for entry during some events. Guided tours of the venue are available daily, bookings essential.

The Centre is the first stage of the Penrith Lakes Scheme.
