Situated about 2 miles northwest of Brisbane's Milton neighborhood, Suncorp Stadium regularly hosts rugby matches for local and national teams like the Wallabies, the Queensland Reds and the Brisbane Broncos. Football (or soccer) games for the Brisbane Roar and various concerts are also held here. On non-event days, visitors can take a public tour of the facility.

According to former visitors, the stadium's design ensures that seats at all price points offer great views. However, for afternoon games in the summer, some recommend booking seats on the building's west side to avoid overheating and facing the sun. Facilities here also receive high praise. Several travelers report clean restrooms and speedy and tasty (albeit a little pricey) food and beverage concessions. A gift shop with sports apparel and memorabilia is located on-site.

Limited street parking is available on Castlemaine Street for a fee, but the easiest (and cheapest) way to get to Suncorp Stadium is by public transportation. Two rail stations – Milton and Roma Street – sit within walking distance, as do bus stops for various downtown routes. On game days, waived fares for buses and trains are offered when a valid ticket is shown to transportation staff. Free rides start four hours before the match and end four hours after its conclusion.

Suncorp Stadium is open every day during scheduled events and between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. on non-event days. Public tours are offered at 10:30 a.m. on non-event days for 16 Australian dollars (about $12) per adult and AU$10 ($8) per child. Note: Bookings must be made 24 hours in advance online; tours with fewer than 10 participant bookings will be canceled and refunded. Rugby, football and concert tickets, meanwhile, vary in price and can be purchased on Ticketek's website. Check out Suncorp Stadium's website for more information about scheduled events and tours.
