Event Rooms & Spaces
Welcome Area

The audience enters through The Star's Glass Façade and Main Foyer.

Huge glass-panels equipped with LED light-displays can be programmed to welcome them. Once inside, The Main Foyer is the ideal spot for pre-show drinks as the excitement builds. As the Main Foyer opens onto a large, foreshore deck, 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

The Main Arena is a 1,077 square-metre, column-free, flat floor space that can be configured to suit any type of event.

General admission capacity is 4,000 and theatre style configuration accomodates 3,000 guests. The capacity also includes four VIP boxes overlooking the Main Arena (capacity 92) and a balcony level seating up to 1,045 people.


The Stage is concert-sized and ideal for parties and shows.

It has multiple entry points, varied camera positions, built-in sound, rigging points, lighting, and visual equipment. The backstage area is spacious, well furnished, and an ideal location for photo shoots. Thanks to its location and transport links, your performers can go from airport arrivals to wowing the crowd in less than half an hour.​
