Nicely sized, there's not a bad seat in the house. But if you want to stay out of the sun, go for doors 4-9 and 14-19. more »
Clean, easy to access. Bar lines moved quickly which was great and bar was kept to a very clean condition. Fairly good prices for a concert. Seating is very well laid out, and staff will help to your seat if need be. Also loved the tight security, it really made me feel safe
Saw the Women's finals of the Australian Open 2019 at the Rod Laver arena. Was a thrilling experience. The seating arrangements were good. Ample places to grab a bite. Multiple toilet facilities and those with wheelchair access. Easy access by public transport. Is also a short walk from the Secure and Wilson parking available on/near Flinder's St.
