Sport and recreation facilities

Active Travel - walking and riding

Staff and students have access to a range of free outdoor fitness facilities, such as the Health Track with outdoor gym equipment on Oval Number 2 at Callaghan and on the perimeter of the Ourimbah Campus and the bush walking track, The Don Morris Walk at Callaghan that starts behind the Engineering precinct. See the campus maps for further information.

Active Travel focuses on physical activity as a mode of transport rather than driving your car. Active Travel Guides are available online, including Walking to UNI 101, along with additional information to assist you with traveling to the University, including the bike hubs and shower facilities.

The University is home to the kind of sporting facilities where elite athletes are proud to train.

As a staff member, you can often access these facilities for discounted rates.
