I've attended a concerts and sports events here. It's really great. The location is easy - it's a very pleasant walk along the Yarra from the city - about 15-20 mins walk. Alternatively, a taxi costs around $15 from mid city and the tram 70 goes right past, both ways. It is easy to find seats, all the amenities are... More

Just a great environment for concerts. Close to hotel (Crown) easy to get there. We caught a water taxi from Southbank.

This concert venue is amazing. Fantastic seats are elevated enough to not have person in front ever block your view. A bit limited with range of food and drink but easily accessible. Tram line only a few minutes walk away but nearest train station a bit further away. Parking availabe next door although quiet expensive.

Attended RW concert and found venue staff and facilities very professional and friendly. Venue $10 Cab ride to nearby hotels Collins street and alike or 15 minute walk along the Yarra River, or go for a tram. Late night bar with great music if you want to kick on after concert. Leanne & Paul

Getting here is a breeze by tram. They are specially laid on for concert goers. The food and drink was good. Reasonably expensive of course as you'd expect but who's quibbling. This is a great venue, very comfortable, clean and well organised.

I came here for a guided tour of the Rod Laver Arena. At $15 per person it's reasonably priced. Best to turn up early as the tour starts on time; no bookings necessary. We get to go behind the scenes and check out the locker rooms, the arena, the press conference room, walk of champions etc. The tour guide allow... More

I've been here for so many events, music mainly, but recently I went for the Ice Hockey. Great location for events, and the organisation was so much better than previous years, the queues moved quickly and a breeze getting through the gates even though it was PACKED! Parking was easy and cheaper than other venues I've been to in Melbourne.

If you enjoy tennis than this is the tour for you. The tour leads you to the players locker rooms, the media room, and Rod laver arena. However, Rod laver looks very different as seen on t.v. If you go on a slow day, they offer you the choice of playing on the courts and on these days you can... More
