Although, my school did recently spend ~$6m on a gym, however most of the price comes from the electronic retractable seats holding 1,300 people to turn the gym into a hall There are no seats to even watch sport from...
Do Australian high schools typically not have athletic infrastructure? Is it usually just a high school gym with some equipment in it?

Wow, from a European perspective it's crazy to think that High schools would have such grand sports facilities. When I was in the high school Basketball team in London we used to get all exited when we played in a place that had a wooden floor or any stands at all

It used to be the 30,000-seat home of three NPB teams; the Takahashi Unions in 1954, the Taiyo Whales from 1955-1977, and the Lotte Orions from 1978 through 1991.

We have grounds, it's just they're not used for competitive matches. My school has two ovasl (for australian football and cricket) and two soccer pitches, aswell as 6 tennis courts and two outdoor basketball courts and two indoor. I doubt there would be more than a handfull of schools Australia wide that have an athletics track though...

The facilities are just used for sport classes and lunch times, not competition.

Washington in SF has always been one of my favorite stadiums in the country at any level. The stadium itself isn't out of this world, but what a view.

High schools in Australia don't compete against each other? What about pools? I know swimming is a big sport in your country.
