Went there for a graduation ceremony. Sweating before and after whilst just standing and talking - not good enough for this venue. Management needs to adjust the set points to allow for the outside temperature and number of guests expected. A pity as the venue...More

It is BIG, but there are screens, so you can see the action. The stage will look small as a consequence. However the ambiance is lively with lots of people. However it is well organised and a very cool location where you can wander through...More

Was surprised to see that the Sydney Entertainment Centre is being demolished on my recent trip to Sydney. It would only be 40 years young if that! Progress doesnt stand still in Sydney Town that is for sure!

I've been here to see concerts a number of times over the years, most recently to see Def Leppard in November 2015. It's a pretty good venue, public transport or parking stations close by. Will be a little sad to see it go.

Last concert at the old girl before she is demolished for something newer, a great place to see a concert like Elton John. Hopefully the new centre has the same atmossphere.

We went and watched the Sydney kings play for the last time in that venue and we had a blast. The seating had a good view of the game and were spaced well apart. The venue is really close to china town and loads of...More
