Event Dates:

fri 29th March - mon 1st April 2024



The main program will be held at the Domain Athletics Centre (DAC).

Map of the DAC

The DAC boasts an all-weather tartan track, featuring a hammer cage, a discus cage, two javelin sectors, four horizontal jump pits and a dual directional pole vault arena. Covered seating is available in the stands, as well as uncovered seating situated alongside the track to take advantage of all the action that takes place on that final 100m stretch.

See the view from the stands.


Parking at the DAC:

There are 122 individual car parking spaces at the DAC itself, with additional 23 at Soldiers Memorial Oval.

Parking is also available along Upper Domain Road with 113 marked spots between the roundabout and the Brooker Highway.

Warm-Up for athletes:

Warm up will be available on Soldiers Memorial Oval, adjacent to the DAC, and on the back straight of the Main Arena when it is not being used for events.  Soldiers Memorial is a grass cricket/football oval with a designated gravel track around the outside of the field, and is only 2 minutes from the Athletics Arean through the car park. The gravel track also takes in the adjoining oval, combining to make around 800m of track.

To ensure the safety of officials and athletes on the in-field, we will have a portable circle on nearby Soldiers Memorial Oval. Soldiers Memorial Oval is on the other side of the car park, and is only a 5 minute walk from the DAC.

The discus circle has been manufactured to IAAF specifications and the sector marked out by qualified officials. The off-site circle will be used for some of the Discus throws on Saturday and Monday.

The circle is made with a substrate of marine ply and the throwing surface has a skim layer of concrete, surrounded by a steel rim to specification.  

The circle will be set up on Thursday 28 March and will be available to use when not being used for competition so that athletes can try it out.

Thursday 28 March

  • Available after 11:00am. The circle and cage will be set up in the morning and the sector marked out.

Friday 29 March

  • Available all day.

Saturday 30 March

  • Not available. It will be in use from 8:15am through to 4:15pm for discus events.  At 4:15pm we will need to remove the cage and use it as extra protection at the Arena for Weight Throw. There can be no implements thrown from the circle without the cage in place.

Sunday 31 March 

  • Available after 12:00pm. The net is being used on the arena until 11:00am and will be brought back to this site as soon as the Weight Throw events are finished. 

Monday 1 April

  • Not available. The circle will be in use for events from 10:00am until 2:45pm.


The Cross Country event will be held entirely within the bounds of the Domain, with the Start and Finish situated on the Soldiers Memorial Oval adjacent to the DAC.

The Start and Finish lines will be separate, and once started on the oval, athletes will proceed in a clockwise direction, following the various well-marked paths and trails to the base of the hill and returning via separate trails to the oval to complete the 4km loop, then continue on for a second loop and finish back on the oval to complete the 8K event. For those competing in the 6K event, they will complete a shorter 3K loop on the same track, which bypasses the lower end of the course (as indicated on the map). Marshalls will be at the turn-off for the 3K loop to provide direction, along with other strategic points.

The course is not suitable for spikes as it is a combination of grass, gravel paths and bushland tracks with some narrow sections. The descent to the base of the hill is reasonably flowing, with the return providing more of a challenge with sections of climbing (but nothing too daunting!)


With much consultation with our Walking community in Tasmania and having our National Junior Champion walker test the course for suitability, we are happy to announce our venue for the 10km Road Walk.

The venue will utilise part of Max's Infinity Loop, which is also within the grounds at the Queen's Domain. Maxs Loop is a multi-use running, walking and cycling track set in beautiful bushland encircling the summit of Hobart's Queens Domain. Named in recognition of Maxwell George Cherry OAM, an Australian athletics and fitness coach based in Hobart who dedicated many years to athletics and the training and promotion of fitness. The track was resurfaced in 2019, providing a dual softfall and bitumen surface.

The course itself offers a 1km loop.


The track (DAC) has been booked for our event from 1:30pm - 5:00pm only due to prior bookings. Unfortunately we were not able to secure the entire day.
There is no fee to train at the DAC.
Available equipment for general use includes
- hurdles
- sand pits (but not rakes)
- high jump mats (including uprights and a training hard bar)
- throws cages/circles and sectors (but no implements)
Athletes wishing to train will need to bring their own throwing implements, cones, tapes and markers.
Pole Vault training and familiarisation times are posted on the website at Rules - amahobart2024.com.au
