It's great that there's somewhere to have events in the Illawarra but there's nowhere to park which is a necessity. There isn't even a spot where you can safely drop the people off at the front. The acoustics are lousy so when you watch people sing it is usually disappointing. It's better than nothing but who puts something like this... More

Easy to access from all Wollongong accommodation. Not too big so generally good seats. Also in the heart of the restaurant scene, ideal for dinner before a show.

I can't stand this stadium. Very poor design, if you are in the southern stand you can end up with a post blocking your view. I like the picture! Wallabies v All Blacks?. Not here.

Have been here many times over the years and seen it evolve with several seating re-builds, and it never loses its atmosphere. It has a great location right on the beach, and it's not that hard to reach by train, although there are local buses that run down there if you search online for timetables. If you're there on a...

We have now been to several concerts at the Win Entertainment Centre. Great venue, reasonable size, good acoustics, good service and reasonable choice of snacks and drinks (bit expensive). For music concert, location of seat almost anywhere would be OK, but for a one person show (e.g. Billy Connelly show recently), get a seat no further than half way back... More

Great spot to watch the footy. Whether you pay for a stadium seat or sit on the hill, good access, helpful staff and good location. Waffle chips are most recommended

Bought tickets in the trackside seating area, which were semi-expensive. Turns out the seating was just plastic seating tightly squashed together. We had decent seats in the third row back, yet we could hardly see anything. After half time we moved to the hill area and sat on the grass, and had a far better view of everything. Little bit...

Nitro Circus with the family was awesome. Great value for money. The same can't be said about the venue. The food is ridiculously expensive and the staff don't know one end of the stadium from the other.
