Amazeballs! A huge stadium built on beach front. It's invasive to the landscape but from a few vantage points in the stadium it's amazing to have the sea as a back drop. The conference centre is massive and worked really well for dinner with a fun stage and decoration. Versatile and practical venue but not what I would call sympathetic... More

WIN entertainment center is a great venue to watch NBL. The only issue we have every time is parking. I'm not sure how they were able to have two big function/sporting grounds with no parking!

Was disappointed to have purchased our lunch from Chickos and when trying to get into the ground for a match , had to eat everything outside. Really disappointed. Its costs for a family and to then not be able to take in our own food was a bit unfair.

The staff were friendly and the arena area was spacious. The whole place was a bit of a rabbit warren with different areas to choose from.

Really liked going to an nrl game at this stadium, you feel so close to the field and I doubt any of the seats have a bad view.

This is for the entertainment centre where $100 plus tickets are the norm. Seats are not numbered and have seen better days. Seats feel as tho they are about to break they are so wonky. The centre requires upgrading. Carpets are worn and old. Seating in the centre is flat and untiered.

Great place to see a number of different things from outdoor sporting to indoor entertainment. Not really a bad seat in the house. Just leave enough time for parking, as it's not great.

The WIN entertainment centre easily catered for well over 1000 competitors in the 2016 Nation Finals of the Barbershop chorus competition. Staff were always friendly and helpful.

We have been here on a few occasions and enjoyed it each time. It isn't too huge that there wouldn't be a good vantage point to see a concert, etc. It has always been clean/well kept. Parking is a big problem in the area as it is near a very popular beach and play area for children.
