Edwin Flack Reserve is located in Berwick in Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs.
The venue was established in the early 1990s and was originally known as Berwick Recreation Reserve. It was renamed in 1996 to honour the centenary of Edwin Flack winning Australia’s first gold medals at the inaugural modern Olympic Games in Athens in 1896. Flack maintained a dairy property in Berwick called “Burnbank” during his lifetime.
A synthetic track was laid at the venue in 2014. An additional eight-lane grass straight exists adjacent to the main straight.
The venue also honours Australia’s gold medallists at Olympic Games since, via a series of plaques and the planting of trees that have an association with the host country.
The venue is managed by the City of Casey.
