Stayed in the CBD and caught a tram - just a short walk to the stadium. Great atmosphere and good amenities. Accessing and leaving the venue was pretty straight forward - considering the size of the crowd. We had pretty good seats but the big screens provided close-ups of the action from the other end of the oval. Great game... More

The FREE City Circle Tram will get you here but make sure you ask the driver which stop to get off at as Etihad is not listed as one of the attractions at the stop and we missed it and had to walk a way back. Grabbed a 75 Tram straight up Bourke St when we left - simple! Venue... More

The crowd noise when the roof is closed adds to the excitement of the match. It is nice to have the weather controlled and the game is usually fast paced. There are a couple of blind spots from the cheap seats. It is not quite as good a viewing ground as MCG but closing the roof is an advantage for... More

Have a great time there watching the Swans win. It was the 1st Gay Pride event so where the coffee vendors usually set up was taken up with stalls selling rainbow items and face painting. Disappointing not to have any coffee within the stadium. I felt very safe there due to bag searches and security constantly walking around - well... More

May be up in the top level but view is superb! You can see the whole ground and all the play. Escalator to second floor then stairs so difficult for elderly so be wary if game is fully ticketed as you'll pay a lot to sit down lower. Always fun to watch the kiddies play at half time!

Nice place to watch the game but be sure you get a good spot like we did. Just in the middle! From the top you can see the entire field which was good choice! I guess the one behind goals are bad enough as you dont get to see the other part of the field. Well, like everywhere haha We... More

I took my grandson to Melbourne to see the Swans . So easy to park right in the stadium , watch the game and take a very tired possum back to motel , what a relief. Take your winter woollies cold even with the roof on . Have fun , we did

Seats just off centre behind the goal, play is very hard to see at the other end, so you are forced to watch the TV screens. Loud, and somewhat inebriated fans, foulmouthed and abusive, can't be found in the privacy of your loungeroom. A fight almost occured in front of us with a Bombers fan badmouthing his team and another... More

This is by far is the worst stadium in Melbourne I attended for an AFL game in June this year the seating is poor and being told that you have to walk all the way around to the other side of the ground to use cash to pay for food is in absolute joke I am so glad that my... More
