Offsite Tours 2023

Explore fire protection, as performed by others. Get a behind-the-scenes look at major infrastructure to see what systems keep thousands of people safe every day.

Following the Fire Australia 2023 Conference program, the tours will give delegates an opportunity to see systems and learn about strategies in situ, rather than just through a presentation.

This year’s offsite tours will provide an inside look into sporting and conference facilities, infrastructure, and bushfire management.


Allianz Stadium and Sydney Cricket Ground

The Sydney Cricket Ground is one of the most iconic sporting sites in the world, and its newly constructed neighbour, Allianz Stadium, is a world-class venue for the various codes of football. 

The SCG has a variety of old and new stands, bringing with them complicated fire risks, while Allianz Stadium (opened last August) has been rebuilt with some of the latest fire protection solutions. 

On this tour, you’ll get to see behind the scenes at some of these facilities and understand the challenges of keeping thousands of people safe from fire during a major event.

Westconnex Control Room

WestConnex is Australia’s largest road infrastructure project and is a critical part of Sydney’s transport network. 

When complete in 2023, it will provide motorists with a continuous, 33km traffic-light free motorway network, with connections for future projects linking the north shore and northern beaches, Sydney Airport and the southern suburbs. 

So, how do the operators minimise the risk of fire and other incidents? 

In this tour of Transurban’s WestConnex control room, you’ll get a look into the facility’s operations and understand what systems are getting travellers home safely.
