The Office of Sport has 11 Sport and Recreation Centres across NSW, set in scenic river, beach, bush or alpine locations. From the serene beauty of the Hawkesbury River and Lake Macquarie, to the beachy vibe of Lake Ainsworth, alpine country of Jindabyne and pastoral quiet of Borambola, Lake Burrendong and Lake Keepit, each Centre offers different, specialist programs that take advantage of the unique features of their location and facilities.
