Situated right in the heart of Greater Sydney, Blacktown City is the ideal location for your next conference, special event or staff day out … and with a variety of conference venues and activities on offer, the choice is simple – Blacktown City!
For high-octane action, hold your next conference or day out at the Blacktown Motorsport Parklands featuring the Eastern Creek International Raceway, Eastern Creek Karting and Western Sydney International Dragway. Why not get the team ‘revved’ up by racing around the circuits.
Or, for the softer approach, bring animals into the picture at Featherdale Wildlife Park. Your international guests will love the chance to cuddle up to a koala and hand feed kangaroos.
Other sporting activities you can organise include soccer, baseball, softball, indoor climbing, golf and even indoor surfing. Valentine Sports Park Complex in Glenwood is home to Soccer NSW and has great conference facilities including accommodation. The Blacktown Olympic Park, home to the Sydney 2000 games and Blacktown Leisure Centre, Stanhope, also offer top-notch facilities of world standard. For golfing enthusiasts try Ashlar Golf Course or Fox Hills Golf Club.
Of course excellent, and the more traditional, conference facilities can also be found in Blacktown City. Just call one of the many registered clubs and/or function centres located here and you’re sure to be impressed. Rooty Hill RSL and Holiday Inn, Travelodge Blacktown, Demons Sports Club, Blacktown Workers, Blacktown RSL, Seven Hills-Toongabbie RSL, Main Event Function Centre, Colebee Centre in Nurrangingy Reserve, Blacktown City Council’s Nirimba Room and Bowman Hall – just to name a few. And for something different, don’t forget the unique Ettamogah Pub or the classic Royal Cricketers Arms Hotel.
There is plenty to do afterwards too: • a spot of shopping at Westpoint Blacktown or at Parklea Markets, the largest single market under one roof in the southern hemisphere; • be inspired by the displays at the Blacktown Arts Centre; • relax with a picnic at Nurrangingy Reserve, where you can enjoy the acres of Australian bushland and observe the resident blacksmith; • turn back the time by visiting the beautiful and historic Rouse Hill Estate and • get scared on an evening ghost tour at St Bartholomew’s Church in Prospect, where famous early explorer William Lawson is buried.
Whatever the conference, whatever the special event, Blacktown City is the place to host it. With a variety of venues, friendly people and great things to do, Blacktown is all about “good sports and great fun”!
