Metricon Stadium, Carrara

Cheer for the Gold Coast Football Club (nicknamed the Suns) at Metricon Stadium, which has the capacity to receive over 25,000 sports fans and is scheduled to host the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2018 Commonwealth Games. This popular sports venue, originally opened in 1987, underwent a massive redevelopment in recent years, and hosted the first Gold Coast Suns game at the reconstructed stadium in May of 2011. The improved venue now hosts regular concerts and other special events, and is set for further upgrades, which will allow it to hold up to 40,000 visitors. The stadium is easily accessible from almost anywhere in town, with special shuttle buses running on match and event days.

  • Love this stadium and go to most Suns home games. Park at Nerang railway station and catch free bus to games.
  • Great AFL facility but catering prices high
