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.

  • 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 »

  • We went to the footy last Saturday night Suns vs Bombers. Alot of the crowd were not local, but it was a great game all the same! I would love to thank the bar staff that worked near the 200's section...  more »
  • Despite being one of the smaller stadiums used for AFL games this ground packs a punch. It has everything the other grounds have and viewing is great from any seat
  • Fantastic great game Proud of my suns Played with full effort Left nothing in the tank Can't win them all Soon will by trying hard
  • Great stadium and far as view on the field better than the Gabba. Though in section 204 row a seat 84 that gaurd rail is pretty annoying. But otherwise great experience
  • Great stadium to watch football. Easy to get to by public transport. 1st class amenities and great veiwing from all parts of the ground.
  • I had my first opportunity to visit Metricon Stadium to watch the Suns play West Coast Eagles. The ground is well set out with plenty of access to amenities. On game day I rang the stadium office to inquire about parking and was informed there is no public parking available. Though free public trains and busses were available. This was not convenient for our situation so after 30 minutes trying to find a park we were directed to school 3kms from the stadium that offered $10 parking and a return bus trip to a drop off point across the road from the stadium.
