About us


The ACT is the most physically active community within Australia. We believe that we can continue this community lifestyle by delivering the highest standard in sporting grounds, facilities and also promoting development within participation and offering support to individuals and teams around the ACT.

Organisational Overview

There are three areas within ACT Government supporting sport and recreation in the ACT, all reporting to the Minister for Sport and Recreation.


Sport and Recreation (within Chief Ministers, Treasury and Economic Development Directorate) is in the business of developing the ACT Community’s physical activity levels from social through to high performance participation through infrastructure planning, athlete support, sector partnerships and capacity building programs to contribute to health, social and economic benefits.


Sports and Recreation Facilities (within Transport Canberra and City Services Directorate) is responsible for the maintenance and management of ACT Government sportsgrounds and associated facilities, including the allocation and booking of sportsgrounds, along with development and execution of capital works projects for new sportsgrounds facilities, and the improvement or refurbishment of existing facilities.


ACT Property Group (within Chief Minister, Treasury and Economic Development Directorate) is responsible for the management of five ACT Government owned swimming pools (Civic, Tuggeranong, Gungahlin, Dickson and Manuka), along with the development and execution of capital works for new aquatic facilities, and the improvements or refurbishments of existing pools.
