The multi-purpose venue was built for the Sydney Olympics in 2000 and after initially having a capacity of 110,000 it can now house 84,000 people.
As well as the track and field sessions at the Olympics, the stadium has also played host to major rugby league, rugby union, football and cricket internationals as well as ARL games.
The NSW Waratahs use the venue alongside the Allianz Stadium, while Canterbury Bulldogs and South Sydney Rabbitohs - as well as Twenty20 cricket team Sydney Thunder - currently call it home.
A then world record rugby union attendance of 107,042 watched the 1999 Bledisloe Cup clash at the ground, with 109,874 cramming a year later for the epic 39-35 victory for New Zealand against Australia.
At the 2003 World Cup, Stadium Australia hosted the major games - including England's 20-17 extra time victory over the hosts in the final.
The British and Irish Lions played at the stadium in 2001, with the third Test decider being won 29-23 by Australia.
