The WIN entertainment centre easily catered for well over 1000 competitors in the 2016 Nation Finals of the Barbershop chorus competition. Staff were always friendly and helpful.

This is for the entertainment centre where $100 plus tickets are the norm. Seats are not numbered and have seen better days. Seats feel as tho they are about to break they are so wonky. The centre requires upgrading. Carpets are worn and old. Seating in the centre is flat and untiered.

Great place to see a number of different things from outdoor sporting to indoor entertainment. Not really a bad seat in the house. Just leave enough time for parking, as it's not great.

We have been here on a few occasions and enjoyed it each time. It isn't too huge that there wouldn't be a good vantage point to see a concert, etc. It has always been clean/well kept. Parking is a big problem in the area as it is near a very popular beach and play area for children.

Good sized facility in choice location. Parking can be a hassle and food/drinks are pricey. Good to watch the Hawks play basketball, where there is always a great atmosphere.

We went here to watch the footy in the hills area. The place they allocated for us was right near a speaker and we could only see the players as they were running close to us. Also the massive TV was behind us so I almost strained my neck trying to watch the instant replay. Food trucks were average and... More

Small, cosy with an amazing view of all. Events from any seat even the cheap ones. It's a great place to see shows concert , sporting events. Even if you have w tight budget, the cheap seats at the back have a great view. The centre is small and thus makes any event fun. Def recommend it
