Melbourne Sports & Aquatic Centre Tours

Completed in 1997, the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Center (MSAC) is one of the largest athletic centers in the southern hemisphere. Home of the 2006 Commonwealth Games and the 2007 FINA World Swimming Championships, the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Center has a wide range of facilities for both serious swimmers and recreational users. Aquatic facilities include a number of indoor pools such as a 50-meter competition pool and 25-meter lap pool, a multi-purpose pool, outdoor 50m pool, wave pool including toddlers' play area, spa, sauna and steam room, water slide, dive boards, and hydrotherapy pool. 

The MSAC also boasts one of three FlowRider machines in Australia. The FlowRider creates a static wave of water that gives riders a similar experience to wakeboarding or surfing.

Other facilities include a 10-court squash facility with international standard glass show court, 12 court badminton stadium, 27 table tennis tables, a 10 court basketball facility with a 1800 seat show court, and three volleyball courts. These facilities can be rented by the hour, or visitors can come and watch some of the many amateur and professional sporting events taking place here.
