“Footy game”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a great stadium. Only has one screen but you can view it from all sides. Up the back in the Western Stand are good seats and covered from the wind etc.

“okay attraction.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Viewed a concert back in May 2012. The entertainment centre was alright. seating was uncomfortable, and i thought it would have been fitted out a bit more confortably. Also seen a football match there. Would recommend dressing warm if sitting on the hill, near the ocean and can get very cold.

“Could be better.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

The seating on the western side (backing the Hawkes arena) have been crammed upon each other....considering the other seats are heaps mor expensive this option made sense. Once seated and evryone in their seats it made it very difficult to get out of the isle. Very far from the big TV's: couldnt see the replays. Tickets not cheap either $100 for a family ticket. Nice ground. Good experience though, thats footy.

“Its not really an attraction”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

The facilities are great, nothing special, but obviously you would not go out of your way to visit this place unless you like Basketball or a concert is on.

The brewery connected to the entertainment centre is worth popping into for a social ale or two... or three
