Entering the stadium, the tour begins with a laser and light show, designed to evoke memories of Sydney 2000. It then goes to the highest grandstand, where besides enjoying a wonderful view, you watch footage of some of the venue's greatest moments. Next, you inspect the members lounge, media centre, press box and a private suite.
To get a taste of game day, the tour continues with a visit to the changing rooms and warm-up rooms. Then, to the recorded roar of 80,000 spectators, you can run through the tunnel to the edge of the field. Awaiting you is the perfect photo location – the actual medal podium from the Olympics. Climb up and snap away to your heart's content.
