We attended three sessions of the Commonwealth Games Athletes at the Carrara Stadium. Whilst our seats were close to the track, they were temporary seating with room whatsoever. You were very intimate with the person sitting beside you. It was a pain every time someone...More

Venue itself is very good, very modern looking and easy to move around the venue. Lots of toilet facilities but very few water dispensers inside the venue. That would be my only concern. Specially for huge crowds like the Comm Games Opening Ceremony.

Wherever you are in the stadium it is good for watching the action, and if it is down the other end there is a huge screen for watching what you may have missed. Ground is immaculate and the GC Suns provide plenty of activities and...More

The stadium is ok, just to get there and leaving is an absolute Night Mare! To get a drink or some food is the same, plus the prices are so inflated that most people bring in their own stuff somehow!

We didn't park, we used the public transport, it is free with your game ticket and it is extremely well operated. I wouldn't bother trying to park, you will be away from the ground before those that have parked are even out... More
