Be wary of the complete lack of parking in the vicinity of the stadium. Private operators nearby will offer parking and a bus transfer, but there is very limited information on this and it is extremely inconvenient. And the AFL wonders why they are struggling to gain traction with some of these new franchises?

Modern small stadium only 5minute drive from Broadbeach , has great views of the playing surface and also allows areas where you can stand and watch the game , a huge plus in my book , also next door to the Carrara market if you wish to kill an hour or two before bounce down , only gripe would be...

We went to watch the dockers play and had to park miles away. Only blue card holders were allowed parking across from the stadium. Would of thought they would open the oval up for supporters. I have to say the grounds were great though. Lots for kids to do. They had jugglers, fairy floss and an area for kids to... More

Our family was visiting the Gold Coast recently and went to the Suns Vs St Kilda AFL match and we all had a blast despite St Kilda not winning. The staff were so relaxed and easy to deal with which made our day. We go to the footy in Melbourne and the staff there could learn a whole lot about... More

Pleasantly surprised about this ground, when visited to see a Suns game. Large oval next door is accessible and great for kids to kick the footy. Nice food, though limited range.
