Great stadium for viewing the action on field. We prefer the upper level in front of the centre of the field to see the whole field easily though all seats are close to the action. The seats are tiered higher there so shorter people can...More

Like attending the footy but it's annoying you can't park there and as like most big venues the food and drink are expensive.

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...More

Even satellite parking for Metricon stadium at exit 77. Just follow the signs.
Where is the best place to stay for a game at Metricon Stadium? Not sure whether to stay in Brisbane or Gold Coast (or other)? We would be catching public transport. Thanks
