This was my first time at this Arena as I'm from Perth. Very relaxing to line up all day as its under shade and there's a cafe nearby, as well as trams to the city.

Attended Cat Stevens concert at Rod Laver. Whilst we had fabulous seats near the front, it would not have mattered where we sat because the set out of the arena assists everyone. The food court was ok but would love to see some restaurants scattered...More
