  • The australian open is the best time for a tourist to visit melbourne as it shows off the best of the city and everything it has to offer. ! 
  • Pre dinner tour of the facilities was very interesting. Dinner for a large number was efficiently served and good quality. 
  • Great facility during the Australian open. Almost any seat has a great view. I would recommend about one third up for best overal view. 
  • Now THIS is a venue. FREE coat check. I know it's a small detail, but man, was it nice to walk up, drop my coat and my girl's bag and just enjoy the concert. I was right at the front, general admission, and the sound could have been better, but at the same time that isn't the venue's fault. The staff were friendly, toilets were well spaced, plenty to eat and drink. What a venue should be run like. Will visit again!
  • This venue is my least favourite in the country. Extortionate pricing, understaffed box office, poor capacity, lack of care for anything that isn't Tennis. Old, expensive, and annoying.
  • Its so great to watch the tennis's greatest players inthis arena.the views are.unhindered and best part is that play doesnt get disrupted if it rains. Awesome experience.
  • Awesome venue. I come every year for the Australian tennis open but also to watch music concerts. Well located, easy access, plenty of parking or public transport.
  • Love this venue. Great venue to watch a good game. Facilities are maintained in the highest standard. Quality of food and drinks were found to be very good.
