Event Rooms & Spaces


The Glass Façade and Main Foyer are where the audience enter. As they do, huge glass-panels equipped with LED light-displays can be programmed to welcome them. Once inside, The Main Foyer is the spot for pre-show drinks as the excitement builds. As the Main Foyer opens onto a large, foreshore terrace, it’s also an ideal vantage point for watching the sun set over Sydney Harbour.

The Main Foyer can be transformed into a chill-out zone once your event starts and is also flexible enough to house pop-up bars, food stations and VIP areas.


Main Arena

Give them a place to party! The Main Arena is a 1,077 square-metre, column-free, flat space that can be configured to suit any type of entertainment. General admission capacity is 4,000; half-seated, 3,400; full-seated, 2,800. The capacity also includes four VIP boxes overlooking the Main Arena (capacity 92) and a balcony level seating up to 1,045 people. 


See it all on The Stage! The Stage is concert-sized and ideal for parties and shows. It has multiple entry points, varied camera positions, built-in sound, lighting, and visual equipment. The backstage area is spacious, well furnished, and an ideal location for photoshoots. It’s also practical, allowing your event production to run smoothly. Thanks to its location and transport links, your VIPs can go from airport arrivals to wowing the crowd in under half an hour.
