We came to the Lady Antebellum concert on 17 March, this was our third concert here. Very well organised to get in & out of plus plenty of toilet facilities, many stands for drinks as well. Have sat in 3 different sections and all with great visability.

Today I finally had a chance to see the Rod Laver Arena in person after watching the Australian Open for many many years on the TV. The pro shop ( meeting point for the tour) was a little bit hard to find as the signs are not clear. The cost of the tour is $18 for adult and personally I... More

We were here to see Kylie this time. The choice of food has changed over time- right now there are pizza, hamburgers and healthier options, too, of sandwiches and wraps. A very basic hot dog can be purchased at one of the many bars but I was very disappointed in it, plus the fact they were out of sauce. There... More

This is a fantastic venue. Each time I've been the seating was fantastic - they say there is no such thing as a bad seat, particularly at the tennis! The outdoor areas are also good and the food at the stalls has never disappointed me. Can get very hot at the tennis in January though be careful to wear sunscreen... More

Indoors concert with plenty of space, amenities and easy access. Within walking distance from where we were( Crown Promenade)along the river. Easy dispersal afterwards and with the amount of people was good. Sound quality was good although maybe a bit loud but that was controlled by the band, not the actual arena. Well set out with merchandise and food stalls... More

We went to the Foo Fighters here. It was extremely hot and sweaty but it was summer at the best rock concert! I have been to many football games and concerts here and always have a great time. Drinks take a very long time to buy when it's a full house but that's to be expected.

Great venue! My fifth year at the Australian Open, great matches, great atmosphere. As a huge tennis fan certainly on a par with Wimbledon, Paris and New York!

This is a great sport and concert venue. Home to the Australian tennis open. It's well located with public transport perhaps the best way to get there. But ultimately is a concert venue and no need to visit outside of going to the Tennis or a concert

Got tickets 48 hours before the match started - amazing seats. Great atmosphere. Loads of catering though very expensive. Excellent transport to the location - well organised as well.
