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

Basketball, concerts, backstage, and "the bowels" of this building, I've been here more times than I can count. Too many basketball games, a Slipknot concert or two, five Metallica shows, Disturbed, Black Sabbath, and I'm sure that I'm missing a couple of shows. Rod Laver is a healthy walk away from Flinders Street station, and provides more than enough facilities... More

One of the best tours to do. Takes you behind the scenes to the mens locker rooms. Our son who loves tennis was in awe. Our tour guide was great. A must do if you like tennis.

Bittersweet because I saw Rafa and Roger play against each other, something that seems to be becoming a rarity; but heartbreaking because of how the finals turned out.
