  • Went for the Twenty One Pilots show in March, had a great time. I was in the pit with a few friends and we all had heaps of fun. We had to catch a 4 hour flight to Melbourne and the experience was definitely worth it. The arena's space and lighting/sound ability was able to handle the many theatrics of a Twenty One Pilots live show very well. Clean and well-kept. Only suggestion would be a toilet for the general admission area.
  • I'm a tennis fan. Visiting Melbourne park and getting to see the Australian Open was a dream come true. Great facilities and access was really made easy. I enjoyed walking and taking the tram to and from the venue. Outdoor viewing area is great too if you only have a grounds pass. Other grounds activities available too for kids and music for adults.
  • Great stadium for events but terrible food and seating outside the arena. I'm surprised they haven't built a nice restaurant yet. People might want to make a night of it and eat prior, but there are no restaurants within walking distance and not everyone wants crappy food that's been under a light all day. If you do buy food, there is nowhere to eat it except on the floor. Which you get told off for... maybe time for an upgrade?! :s
  • The internationally acclaimed tennis stadium of the Australian Open, named after one of the tennis legends, where some of the best matches of the world are held. Rarely is there a match here where people aren't holding their breaths or thundering with applause. Even sitting in the stadium gives you an almost overwhelming sense of grandness. It is also fantastic and efficient for viewers with its multiple entrances, public bathrooms, catering services and phone chargers spotted all throughout the exterior of the stadium.
  • Fantastic venue. Great seating. Great show
