Viking Park is a 8,000 capacity venue (1,000 seated)[1] in Canberra, Australia. It has a rectangular playing surface which is used to host rugby union and rugby league matches. It is home to the Tuggeranong Vikings and all matches in the ACT rugby finals are played here. The Canberra Vikings also played there in 2004 & 2005 when they were in the Tooheys New Cup. The Brumbies in Super Rugby sometimes use it for training and will play their home games in the Australian Provincial Championship at the venue. In 2006 the Wallabies used the ground in preparation for an upcoming game in the Tri Nations, and in 2008 it hosted two Australian women's internationals against New Zealand.
