Had the chance to be invited to a Concert - Muse - on live, not my type of music but still the concert was really entertaining and I got to see that wonderful and famous Rod Laver Arena! I'd love to go back to watch tennis - who knows, maybe another time! Large amount of people - well equipped place... More

I have seen some great iconic acts perform here - Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Motley Crue & The Eagles and it's been great every time. The staff are friendly and helpful, and it's always been easy to get to & from the venue.

We went to watch the Tennis and it was awesome - make sure you get covered seats if it is summer as it can be roasting in there.

I have been here for many things, including the Australian Open for tennis and concerts! It is a great destination and has a great atmosphere! A place to remember!

During the Aussie Grand Slam Tennis Open great seats can be had in the early rounds in the shaded areas for a reasonable price. Day sessions are usually the best as you get one additional match over the evening sessions and you get home at a reasonable hour. Evening sessions can run into the wee hours.

Apart from Wimbledon this sporting complex is the best of its kind. Ever expanding.. The Australian Open is not to be missed and tickets don't require lining up for hours "}

We attended a concert at this venue and were amazed at how good the venue is for these events. With an opening and closing roof, it can be a huge indoor arena or an outdoor venue. We found access easy and enjoyed our experience here.

Had a show to go to at the arena but being from Sydney did not know where exactly it was. So, like dumb tourists everywhere we caught a cab only to get held up in AFL traffic. Finally realised that it is in easy (and quite pleasant) walking distance from the city so getting back to our hotel was much... More

If you are going for a sporting event ensure you take food. We went there for basketball and they had 3 food outlets open with lines an hour long. They also ran out of food at one stage which made a lot of people unhappy. It was also incredibly overpriced - $12 a small pizza with very little topping. Really... More
