  • Clean, easy to access. Bar lines moved quickly which was great and bar was kept to a very clean condition. Fairly good prices for a concert. Seating is very well laid out, and staff will help to your seat if need be. Also loved the tight security, it really made me feel safe
  • Saw the Women's finals of the Australian Open 2019 at the Rod Laver arena. Was a thrilling experience. The seating arrangements were good. Ample places to grab a bite. Multiple toilet facilities and those with wheelchair access. Easy access by public transport. Is also a short walk from the Secure and Wilson parking available on/near Flinder's St.
