Had amazing seats so close to the action. Easy to get beer and food with not long lines and was almost a sell out. Roof was closed too cause it was raining which saved the day.

The big bash was awesome to watch. They also had good pre-show. It was easy to get to and by a lot of transportation. There are plenty of places to buy the weakest beer ever and plenty of clean toilets. It was fun and good for all ages.

What a way to watch the footy from three stories up and on the ground floor. Docklands now Ethiad Stadium caters for about 40,000 and hosts different types of sport. From AFL, Big Bash and the soccer. Great Stadium in my opinion.

Literally got off the tram took a photo and got back on the tram. We thought there would be so much more there to do and see. We would have liked to have eaten there - but seedy looking people and not comfortable at all. Empty restaurant at The Woolshed - such a pity - looked really nice.

Saw T20 Big Bash League match. Seated in Melbourne Renegades members area which amped up the experience. Good facilities and seating. Shame the match was an absolute fizzer!

I took my wife who does not enjoy cricket to a T20 Big Bash match with other friends. She enjoyed the experience after exploring all areas of the ground. Half time entertainment was crazy guys doing jumps of motor bikes. They were also excellent. Seats and view was very good. We caught a tram to the stadium from the CBD... More

Located at the heart of the Melbourne city , this indoor stadium is well connected by road. Has full protection from rain , dust as it is fully covered. The Day and Night cricket matches are normally held over here. Two gigantic led screens display the live telecast too . Good seating arrangements as well as having good restaurants for... More

Went to Justin Timberlake here, picked seated tickets. The stage was set a lot further away then need be and there was a constant breeze (even though the roof was shut and an indoor concert). Staff also sent us to the wrong seats originally. Anyone going to a concert here would recommend to wrap up warm.

Stadium seemed modern enough; it is a handy walking distance from the city; This event tested the facilities with record attendances but there were not enough toilets for people who stay all day

We recently attended a 3 day convention at this stadium. Seating is uncomfortable and feels cramped and narrow. But then again it's not designed to sit in one place all day long. The views around the stadium are very good and sound system good also. It is wonderful to have a roof that can be closed to keep the elements... More
