Venue

Carrara Indoor Sports Stadium

Originally opened in 1989 by the Gold Coast Cougars, later to be rebranded as the Gold Coast Rollers, the Carrara Indoor Sports Stadium has since been home for a large range of community sporting organisations and major events.

Refurbishment of this multi-purpose indoor venue was completed prior to the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, extending community usage of this facility for the next 20 years and beyond. The project has delivered upgraded spectator seating, technology upgrades, new internal and external cladding, and a new roof.

The venue is in the heart of the Gold Coast Sports Precinct centred between the Gold Coast Sports and Leisure Centre and Metricon Stadium, home of the Gold Coast Suns.

Location

Carrara Indoor Sports Stadium
296 Nerang Broadbeach Rd, Carrara QLD 4211
