Metricon Stadium, Carrara

4.2
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.

  • I was impressed with the beauty of this stadium, modern and bold, and next to it a whole infrastructure of shops and restaurants

  • Wherever you are in the stadium it is good for watching the action, and if it is down the other end there is a huge screen for watching what you may have missed. Ground is immaculate and the GC Suns p...  more »
  • The stadium is ok, just to get there and leaving is an absolute Night Mare! To get a drink or some food is the same, plus the prices are so inflated that most people bring in their own stuff somehow!  more »

  • Went to Australian trials for Commonwealth Games. No screens to see other end of field. Poor food choices for an athletic meet, more suited too a footy game. Food smelt greasy... I have since been back now that it is decked out for the Commonwealth Games (saw Opening Ceremony Rehearsal). Don't buy the first food you come across wait for the multi cultural food choices after the deep fried stuff. The food is expensive for what you get. Just another subcontractor price gouging where they can. Four big screens, to see all the action. Allow extra 20 minutes for security screening and twenty minutes walking time. Lots of people to tell you where to go and assist. Take a brolly... if it is forecast to rain you'll get wet. They have a stroller and wheelchair parking tent like a coat check. Handy with little fuss.
  • It's easy too get around. The athletics tea km installed for Commonwealth Games is superb (apparently, from reports, but will be pulled up after games). I have enjoyed the corporate boxes here for the Gold Coast Suns games before. Parking is generally good if you have a pass to park.
  • Went to Metricon Stadium for the Opening Ceremony Rehearsal for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games and it was an amazing event. Good seats, great installations and a beautiful place.
  • Was fortunate enough to see the dress rehearsal of the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Fantastic venue catering for large crowds.
  • Absolutely fantastic. Pity there was not more coverage for unforeseen weather. Disability and age persons found it hard on stairs. Transport was a MESS!!!!
