Rod Laver Arena


Rod Laver Arena

Rod Laver Arena is a 15,000 seat stadium in Melbourne Park located 5 minutes walk from Melbourne’s CBD.

Variously known as 'Flinders Park', the 'National Tennis Centre' or 'Centre Court', the venue was renamed Rod Laver Arena in 2000, in recognition of Rod Laver's remarkable tennis career that saw him achieve the Grand Slam twice and cement him as one of the world's greatest ever male tennis champions.

The Australian Open, one of only four annual Grand Slam Tournaments, has been held every year at Melbourne Park since 1988. As well as the tennis facilities and entertainment venues, Melbourne Park also houses administration offices for Melbourne & Olympic Parks, Tennis Australia and the Australian Open.

Rod Laver Arena's remarkable versatility has been evidenced in the amazing array of events over the years - from rodeos and dirt bike demonstrations, gymnastics, wrestling, boxing, family shows, memorials, concerts and of course, the tennis.

Justin Timberlake's 'in-the-round' stage mode holds the record crowd with 16,183 on 18 November 2007.

P!nk performed 18 shows across July and August 2013.

n total, over one million people visit Rod Laver Arena each year to view the Australian Open, and attend functions and concerts. The facilities are maintained at world class standards, giving Australian and overseas visitors exciting entertainment options in a safe and comfortable environment.

The roof weighs 700 tonnes and takes 25 minutes to open or close.

Melbourne & Olympic Parks is located in the heart of Melbourne, and in conjunction with the MCG, is collectively known as the sports and entertainment precinct.

Melbourne & Olympic Parks is ideally situated for access by public transport and is readily accessible from any direction. Main entrances for all venues are located via Olympic Blvd (previously known as Swan St) between Punt Road to the East and the Yarra River to the West.

For major concerts and events public transport is recommended as the most effective mode of transportation. A short walk from Flinders Street train station via the William Barak footbridge allows patrons and guests access to the City Entrance of Melbourne & Olympic Parks.

Parking throughout the Melbourne & Olympic Parks precinct is quite limited. To avoid disappointment, patrons are strongly encouraged to use public transport. Public transport services take you to the door of the Melbourne & Olympic Parks precinct.
