The aura and atmosphere of The Gabba is incredible. I wish I could say the same about their service. Overpriced food and drinks - they didn't even let me bring water in in 2013! Nothing healthy to eat except for the nearby cafes. Same goes for decent drinks. Fun police also intervene regularly. Section 5 is the spot for all-day... More

Went on a tour of the ground and as a cricket geek totally loved it. You went to the changing room and went pitchside.

During Brisbane visit my bucket list is to see a ODI match and it did not disappoint me because my favorite teams were playing (Australia vs India). Iam all for having some fun but was trying to to get good clicks of favorite cricketers and moments.

Apart from cricket, it's best known as the home of the Brisbane Lions, an Australian Football League (AFL) team. The Lions won three Premierships in a row, making them one... More

Compared to many grounds, the Gabba is really good. Good toilet facilities and food and drink easy to access. Good views of the game from almost everywhere - but cricket is better from the ends. Also Northern side is better if you want to stay out of the sun. Easy access by train or bus. Good parking around. Close to... More

This past Saturday gone by July 30th, after work I decided to go take the bus into The Gabba to watch the AFL match at night time. It was easy to get there via public transport, I got off at Woolloongabba station and walked, got ticket then entered, quite easily. The grass had activities for kids. The toilets are clean,...

I got quite a unique view of the Gabba as i was there doing a stair climb challenge called Stadium Stomp. The Gabba is a modern oval and was great for the Stadium stomp challange.
