Went for the dance recital recently & was very impresed by the size, quality of sound & amenities. Well worth a visit if there is a show on.

I haven't yet been to WIN Stadium but I did enjoy Bob Dylan at the Entertainment Centre. The place isn't very big but the sound resonated well. It's worth going to see a big name but isn't the best of venues.

While the entertainment centre hosts some great concerts, the amenities are not up to the standard of such a venue. There is little to no parking and the bar/restaurant facilities are pretty average. Park and eat elsewhere, and come just for your show.

Some of the best concerts I have been to have been at the WEC - the sound is great much better than the Sydney venues - central and easy to walk from town, only draw back would be the lmited free parking but there are a few $5 car parks around.

This is a great stadium. Only has one screen but you can view it from all sides. Up the back in the Western Stand are good seats and covered from the wind etc.

Viewed a concert back in May 2012. The entertainment centre was alright. seating was uncomfortable, and i thought it would have been fitted out a bit more confortably. Also seen a football match there. Would recommend dressing warm if sitting on the hill, near the ocean and can get very cold.

The seating on the western side (backing the Hawkes arena) have been crammed upon each other....considering the other seats are heaps mor expensive this option made sense. Once seated and evryone in their seats it made it very difficult to get out of the isle. Very far from the big TV's: couldnt see the replays. Tickets not cheap either $100... More
