  • The Australian Institute of Sports is spacious and convenient with bus stations nearby. There is a variety of utilities in the area. The place is notable for several of its arenas and stadiums where popular matches take place and contests occur. The aquatic centre is in good condition with affordable activities on offer. There are some outdoor sculptures and chances to observe artistic creations.
