The SpeedDome is the only indoor velodrome in Perth. The 250m international standard timber cycling track was designed by German architect Ralph Shurrman and constructed under the supervision of UK velodrome specialist Ron Webb. High grade Siberian pine was chosen for its surface as well as its capability to bend in two directions.
In the centre of the cycling track is a multipurpose concrete floor used for inline hockey, figure and speed skating. A purpose-built kick boxing gymnasium is located underneath the cycling track. 1,500 spectators can be a accommodated in fixed tiered seating with facilities available for up to 2,300 people. A fully serviced bar and canteen facility is located in the main foyer of the building.
