Walk to the Ritz, or hop on the light rail to Randwick Racecourse, the SCG, Hordern Pavilion and Entertainment Quarter
The Blenheim accommodation in Randwick is ideally located for sport and culture in Sydney. From screenings at the famous Randwick Ritz, to concerts at the SCG and Hordern Pavilion, we are ideally located to showcase the best the Sydney scene has to offer.
The Sydney sports calendar is also jam-packed with thrilling action across a variety of sports and festivals taking place throughout the year. Along with top cricket, rugby, football and AFL matches, is the excitement of thoroughbred racing, motorsports, surfing and golf.
The brand new light rail takes guests to Randwick Racecourse, the SCG and Hordern Pavilion in 10 minutes or less.
Just a 5 to 10 minute walk from The Blenheim you will find the gorgeous, Heritage-listed Art Deco-era cinema specialising in quality mainstream and indie films. This is a rare spot you will find a cinema that screens both digital and celluloid (35mm and 70mm) film.

No visit to Sydney would be complete without experiencing a day out at Royal Randwick Racecourse, home to the richest race in Australia, The Everest. Race days are held regularly during Spring Carnival and at other times during the year. Getting there could not be easier. Hop on the Light Rail directly opposite The Blenheim and three stops later you will be directly at the racecourse.
Look out for our special raceday packages combining convenience, comfort and value for a memorable stay.
SYDNEY CRICKET GROUND
The SCG is one of the most iconic venues in Australia, housing a variety of sporting and cultural events (including megstars who perform there like U2) in its Victorian-era pavilions, alongside its 21st century grandstands – we are lucky to be just a few stops away from accommodation near the SCG!
The marquee cricket events at the venue take place in summer. There are many games played including the marquee ‘pink ball test’ in early January each year for the annual Test match, where fans don the colour pink to raise funds for breast cancer research.
The Twenty20 Big Bash League has also exploded in popularity and is an all round fun family afternoon or evening out.
AFL, Rugby Union and Rugby League
These immensley popular sports are also well worth a trip to the SCG for an afternoon or evening out with the family.
