The most and least isolated tracks in Australia

We measure distance with precision on an athletics track, but what about the distance between tracks?

Perhaps not surprisingly, Arafura Stadium in Darwin is Australia’s most isolated synthetic athletics track… the next closest synthetic track is Barlow Park in Cairns, which is 1,677km away!

The two closest synthetic tracks (leaving aside venues like SOPAC and QSAC and their warm up tracks) are Mentone Girls’ Secondary College and Dolomore Reserve, which are just 1.86km apart.

We wonder too, what is the most isolated grass track and closest two grass tracks in Australia?
