We took the opportunity to visit this Arena to watch the Ice Hockey. Our seating was great in Row M, and we had a wonderful view and their was a screen also to assist. The game was fantastic with the Canadian's winning. A delay in getting food, but when we got it, it was nice.

Been on the tour, pretty fun. Have watched a bunch of matches on the court. tip: during the Australian Open be sure to pick a seat where the shadow covers your seat for the maximum period of time (if not all day). The sun can be unbearably hot (some days go into 30-40 degrees Celsius).

Been to many concerts at Rod Laver Arena, the only negative is the seats are too hard, especially if you are sitting for a long time, great athmosphere and sound

Have attended many concerts and sporting events at this Arena. I have attended with my 10 year old niece at concerts and tennis and at all times, wherever we are seated we have had excellent views. Facilities - food and toilets - are easy to access and there are generally not long queues even though the crowds at the events... More

Rod Laver Arena is home to the Australian open and now with new courts and better facilities it is a great place to check out a game, even if you don't follow it. The atmosphere is really good, check out the Heineken garden or the outside courts on the cheap ticket. I have been to multiple concerts at Rod Laver... More

Being a tennis fan it was amazing to actually see where the big matches at the Australian Open are actually played each year. A wonderful tennis stadium.

Great views from all angles in Rod Laver. Very popular sporting and live music venue. As with all attractions, food and drink is pricey and just hope it doesnt rain while you're at an event because after it when you have to go back outside, there's next to no cover from mother nature. Public transport from the area is a... More
