FIRST® STEAMWORKS, the 2017 FIRST Robotics Competition game, invites two adventure clubs from an era in which technology relied on steam power to prepare their airships for the ultimate long distance race.
Paid parking is available but not guaranteed. Please visit the park's site for more info:
www.sydneyolympicpark.com.au/parking - or check out public transportation options to avoid parking fees.
Sydney Olympic Park houses several hotels. However, these tend to book early due to events in the park. Hotel searches should include the surrounding suburbs of Parramatta, Ryde, Rhodes, & Strathfield. You can also stay
in Sydney's CBD (in the city) and take the train into Sydney Olympic Park.
Sydney Olympic Park is easily accessible by train with a station in the park and within close walking distance of
the Sports Centre where the competition is held.
Additionally, numerous bus services pass through Sydney Olympic Park. Connecting bus services to Strathfield
Station and Parramatta Station operate on regular weekday and weekend timetables.
There are several food & snack outlets located in the Sports Centre including a coffee and sandwich on the
second level. Additionally, in the arena there will be three food outlets open for light breakfast and lunch
(including healthy options) on the upper level of the arena.
