Macquarie University Sporting Hall of Fame Museum
Australia's first University Sporting Museum
Since the formation of Macquarie University, sport has played an integral part in its development and created the foundations of one of Australia's leading Universities.
Starting out with only nine sporting clubs, and annual budget of $12,000, a one room gym and two squash courts*, we have come a long way to get where we are today. With the opening of the state-of-the-art Macquarie University Sport & Aquatic Centre which includes a 50 metre outdoor pool, a 25 metre indoor pool, six squash courts and 14 sporting clubs, we are undoubtably leading the way in University Sport.
"Competing for Australia at the Olympic Games was the most honourable experience of my life. A small percentage of Australians get to represent Australia at anything, and an even a smaller percentage gets to represent Australia at the most prestigious sporting event in modern history."

Acknowledging the Success Stories
In early 2008 the Macquarie University Sporting Hall of Fame was conceptualised by Macquarie University Sport to highlight the past and present successes in sport at Macquarie. It is our vision to instil a sense of pride and endowment in the Macquarie University community.
The Macquarie University Sporting Hall of Fame further embodies the triumphs and sacrifices of extraordinary athletes who have proven their abilities on a world stage; the dedication and self-sacrifice of individuals who persevered to ensure that sport at Macquarie has achieved the highest level of excellence. The museum is recognising and appreciating the development of athletic talent from young athletes into Olympians and world Champions.
So why not visit the Macquarie University Sporting Hall of Fame located at the Macquarie University Sport and Aquatic Centre. Come out to see your favourite sporting heroes. Recent Olympians Grant Brits, Tina McKenzie, Ian Thorpe and Joel Milburn will be featured in the museum alongside Australian champions, internationally acclaimed athletes and our Sporting Alumni.
