Ever wondered what it takes to become an elite athlete?
The Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) in Canberra is the best place to find out. The AIS campus is located in the suburb of Bruce in the Australian Capital Territory. Details about facilties and activities available and information about how to visit us can be found on our campus map page.
Established in 1981, the AIS is the training ground for Australia ’s elite athletes and a unique Australian tourist attraction. Located only a 10-minute drive from Canberra ’s city centre, the institute is a popular tourist destination.
While on tour at the AIS, you will see the world-class facilities and gain insight into the life of an elite athlete.
Watch gymnasts in training, see some of Australia ’s top swimmers doing their laps or bump into a world champion – all this could be part of your tour.
The tours, guided by elite athletes, take 90 minutes and include Sportex, an interactive exhibit. Here you can see how you measure up to an elite athlete or discover how you rate as a rock climber, wheelchair basketballer, golfer or rower.
Other displays include nutrition, sports medicine and a legends tribute to some of Australia ’s greatest champions.
