The success of Sydney Olympic Park is understood worldwide.

The Park has become an international showpiece on how a post Olympic destination can have lasting positive outcomes for the community as it becomes an active and vibrant centre.

Government officials and interested parties from across the globe visit Sydney Olympic Park each year to see first-hand how the Park has transformed and to learn management lessons from Sydney Olympic Park Authority.

Particular interest is focussed on sporting venues that were used for the Games and are still well used today. One of the keys to success for Sydney Olympic Park’s sports venues is ensuring a balanced use, from grassroots community sport right through to raining and competition venues for elite athletes.

Sustainability is also a focus of international attention, as the Park is recognised as a leading example of urban renewal and environmental remediation. Since the 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games, over 110 new environmental sustainability initiatives have been implemented at Sydney Olympic Park to minimise and reduce its environmental footprint. These environmental initiatives focus on flora and fauna conservation, leachate management, water conservation, transportation, heritage conservation, energy efficiency, environmental education, construction and development.
