about us

The Dunc Gray Velodrome is located at Bass Hill approximately 5 kilometers south of Bankstown.The fully enclosed building covers a surface area of 11,000 square meters and is surrounded by 200 hardstand car parking spots with another 1,000 spots available adjacent to the venue.

Surrounding the 3,000 square metre infield are 3,100 seats raked to provide the best possible sightlines. The seats are arranged in amphitheatre style around the track and are linked by a public concourse, which contains the various spectator amenities such as toilets; merchandise outlets and food and beverage facilities. There is an Electronic Scoreboard linked to the timing equipment and full photo finish equipment is also available.

The 250 meter Baltic Pine Track was designed and installed by Mr. Ron Webb and has been widely acclaimed as one of the best in the world. Results at the 2000 Sydney Olympics and Paralympics back up this claim. Support facilities for Competitors and Officials such as Change and Meeting Rooms are readily available throughout the Venue.

People with disabilities are well catered for with the whole venue being fully accessible with ample numbers of wheelchair and companion seating available. An 800 meter Criterium circuit is adjacent to the venue. The Dunc Gray Velodrome was opened in November 1999 and is named after Edgar �Dunc Gray� who was the first Australian to win a cycling Gold Medal at the Olympic Games (Los Angeles 1932). The Bankstown District Sports Club manages the Venue on behalf of the Bankstown City Council and the NSW State Government.
