Etihad Stadium, is a newish stadium in the CBD of Melbourne.
It is home to sporting events, namely AFL and Rugby Union and entertainment concerts.
On this night I went to watch Hawthorn’s last game of the season. I was so glad I flew down to watch them play.
Etihad has a real vibe. On a near full crowd the place heaves with noise, cheers and awesome lighting. The facilities are considerate and cater for special needs. The foods is pretty dodgey like most Australian sporting venues, so eat before you come.
The easiest way to get to Etihad is via train. Just aim for Etihad Stadium, Docklands station. It is really easy once there and about a ten minute walk.
