My daughter and I had a brilliant time at the recently held Australian Open 2016. Not only Rod Laver Arena, but the whole complex is wonderful. Lots to see and do and quite affordable. Excellent for families who enjoy tennis.

I have been to the Arena for many Aus open matches and also a few music concerts. The facilities are excellent and all the events have been well organised. The Arena is very easily accessible by public transport and is a walkable distance from the city.

Last month, I visited Rod Laver Arena for the first time and I was so pleased with it all! My friend and I had a pleasant walk from Flinders Street Station over the bridge to the venue. I've been to heaps of sporting events and this was by far, the most organised and accommodating. The stadium itself is just fantastic.... More

Amazing facility and so well run. Very impressed also with the taxi service provided at the end of play in the evenings - they have organised guys in hiviz vests stopping the traffic to get tennis fans into the taxis and off to their homes/accommodations. Wonderfully organised!
