Rod laver arena is a world class venue close to public transport and well signed when you get inside the Area there. Even the cheapest seats were good viewing and comfortable.it was very well planned for maximum public viewing.

Great venue for the show. Good facilities. My only suggestion is you pre book your parking. This saves major disappointment.

The Hugh Jackman concert was sensational, but the seats in Rod Laver arena - made from a hard plastic - are very uncomfortable. I had forgotten how uncomfortable, because I avoid attending concerts there ( am not a tennis fan anymore!) because the place is so huge, it's difficult to see the performer/s! You'll be charged a ridiculous price for... More

We loved the arena. It's very accessible and convenient for people in wheelchairs. We enjoyed seeing the Australia Open there, all seats and great.

Saw the opening night of Hugh Jackmans Broadway to Oz show there. It is a huge place but the organisation is amazing. Easy access to fairly comfortable seats. Many food and bar outlets. Tram and train available to everywhere.

We have been regular patrons of the Australian Tennis Open for many years now. We have typically gone to the middle weekend night sessions (3rd and 4th round matches) and most matches have lived up to expectations. We recently attended a Fleetwood Mac concert at Rod Laver Arena. It is a good venue for concerts and the acoustics are good.... More

Went to see Ed Sheeran. Staff were helpful and the event was good. Drinks were reasonably priced. The stadium was large and the sound was good.

I have seen many concerts at Rod Laver, the most recent being Ed Sheeran in April, and other venues over the years and this is by far the best venue in Melbourne; not too big but not too small!

We attended the recent Fleetwood Mac concert and were delighted to be able to walk along the banks of the beautiful Yarra River right to the stadium. When we arrived, it was quick and easy to enter the stadium and find our way to our seats. Without having to get into long queues we were able to buy drinks and... More
