    Australia's most up-to-date arena
    Optus Stadium is built on a fans-first basis. This modern arena is the most up-to-date stadium in Australia. It will hold more than 60,000 spectators. Sporting events that are held at the arena include AFL, rugby league and cricket, at elite level. The arena is located at Burswood, in Perth's inner eastern suburbs. It's an impressive facility, visitors can take a guided tour and get a lasting impression of this outstanding stadium.

    Fantastic match experience
    First time in Perth, first time at the Optus stadium, first ever AFL game. I’ve been to many stadiums in the UK, football, rugby, you name the teams. All fade in comparison with this stunning stadium. Aside from the brilliant architecture, the facilities are amazing. Toilets at every exit from the seating areas, quiet at half time! Unheard of in UK. Seating areas and pitch visible from concourse areas, again a novelty for me. Thoroughly enjoyed the match, grasped the main concepts quite quickly (some help from google) - it’s better than soccer in my view. After the match, easy to walk to train for Perth and Freemantle. You don’t know how lucky you are in Australia (you probably do!)

    Conert at the stadium
    Coldplay concert - brilliant at getting folks in and out, and back to the train station and onto trains. Only issue is that the food and drink queues were terrible and we weren't allowed to bring any drinks into stadium, including water. There was tap water available but I still think that the prohibition on drinks is not acceptable if you are unable to serve people efficiently. And the rest of Perth is unable to cope with the infux - took over an hour to pick up hire car because the cars were not cleaned and ready for use, even though everyone has booked in advance (and often paid in advance too). Net effect - government pays to promote Perth as a destination and then folks have a poor tourist experience!

Just attended the Queen and Adam Lambert concert last night and the sound was awful! The band would have been great but they sounded like they were being played on a cheap cassette player turned up full volume! Distorted and echoey so you couldn’t understand the words. I was about 5th row back at the side in the elevated section, I had a friend right near the front of the stage who had no issues but you only have to look at Optus Facebook page to see how many unhappy people there were! Tickets were the most expensive I’ve paid for a concert too and I’ve been to loads! Will not be going to any concerts here in the future. Very disappointed, wish I could somehow get a refund.

Visited here on a Sunday. No stadium tours open. Had to make do with lunch in their cafe. Most contemporary layout. Large windows so views outside were nice. We had salmon bagels with soft drinks. The food was pretty average. I liked the outside look of the new arena. With the increased capacity to circa 60k it must be an improvement on the WACA. We also walked the nearby bridge over the river. Beautifully & tastefully constructed, well worth the walk back & forth.

I don't think there is a bad seat to watch any event at this stadium. Sat in section 516, row 2 and had spectacular views. You can still hear the crack of the ball hitting a bat and atmosphere was electric. Food quality and price was decent and transport options is well organised and easy to understand. All seats are under a roof

Optus Stadium is great for watching for sports. Getting to and from the facility is simple on public transport. The layout within the stadium is impressive and the precinct is nice. Food and drink is good and reasonably priced. However, the acoustics are poor for live music, in particular in the serviced boxes on level 3 and the seats on level 5. The acoustics are so bad (voices not clear; sound reverberating; echoes), it impacted big name events like U2 and Queen.

Optus Stadium hosted the Australian Football League (AFL) grand final for 2021, only the second time the event had been staged outside of Victoria. Optus Stadium accommodated more than 60,000 spectators, proving Western Australia could organise one of the nation's largest sporting events. It's a feather in the cap for WA, let's hope Optus Stadium is awarded other crowd-pleasing events.

Decided to shout my brother-in-law a day at the Aus vs West Indies 1st Test in the Sports Lounge which was a substantial premium over and above standard stadium seating. On arrival, staff who were largely helpful in facilitating wheelchair support for me to get into the stadium, however, were unable to locate the Sports Lounge and escorted us to the allocated seating I'd booked associated with our Lounge access but it was not at all clear that the seating was outside the lounge. The description of the features of the lounge on its website very much overstated the offering. When I provided feedback to the venue after the visit, my concerns were dismissed and I was blamed for not knowing my way around the venue. and that I "should have asked a staff member". When I explained that this had been done with no success, I was still not provided with any understanding or apology

The sound quality at Optus stadium for concerts is absolutely diabolical - the echo/reverb is terrible.

At the Queen concert and U2 concerts the echo in certain spots - ie my seats was terrible. and not at all fit for purpose.

The stadium and organisers really need to collaborate to get some echo eliminators or baflles installed otherwise please stop promoting concerts there.

The only good thing is - you get to hear the concert twice

Optus Stadium is famous for staging one of only two Australian Football League (AFL) Grand Finals held outside of Victoria. In 2021, Melbourne defeated the Western Bulldogs to take the premiership flag for the first time since 1964, at Optus Stadium in Perth. The game was hailed as one of the best-ever Grand Finals, and the Optus Stadium was packed to the rafters. "The Granny" is football's greatest contest at the elite level.
