Had an amazing tour of the AIS. The talent and commitment of these athletes is inspiring. There is a great collection of memorabilia and fun facts

This is a top rate pool for swimming laps in, lovely and clean in the water and the change rooms. Showers have adjustable heat instead of the pre-programmed heat settings that many places have. Car parks are free too.

We had a great tour guide. Going in the holidays was a good option as we got to see lots of younger athletes training such as gymnasts.

We were fortunate enough to have 400m Olympic hurdler, Tristan Thomas as our tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable (and funny) and went above & beyond to show us around the AIS facilities.

If you're visiting the AIS, you really have no option but to take a tour, otherwise you are limited to the shop and café. Family entry was $55 which we found a bit expensive. Your tour guide is usually one of the athletes training at...More

We took the earliest tour at 10am and our first stop was sportex - the interactive sports area which the kids and adults enjoyed. We were there for half an hour, how much you get to do on each activity would depend a lot on...More

The lobby area is peppered with display cases featuring notable Australian athletes and their accomplishments and a timeline highlighting key time frames where Australian sport had big inflection points in their national history. I liked the Interactive sports...More

Family of four did the tour. Cost $55 which I thought was a bit excessive considering it's me as a taxpayer who has funded this institute! Taken around by one of the gymnasts Luke who was very knowledgeable and a great guide. Spent first 30...More

Being the proud owner of sporty kids, this was a must see. The tour was a great length & our guide was witty, knowledgable and interesting. We started in the sportex area. Unfortunately many of the activities were out of order, which was a let...More

Address is Leverrier St Bruce next to the Visitor centre. Now for accomodation close by that's not an easy question. There are no motels in the complex and the closest place might be at Dickson, with the Dickson Tradies... More

Hi I want to know how you book tour to AIS? Their website seems to be for groups (is schools). Also if you do the tour do you have to pay extra to swim in the pool? Thanks Erin
