“Very nice stadium, with almost all seats having an excellent view. The food is very cheap for stadium food, with nice pies and chips going for 4.50 each. Very cold as it’s in Canberra though but you can’t do much about that.” -Cooper Smith
Manuka Oval’s rich and diverse history has proved integral in its continuous use as a sporting venue. With a seating capacity of 13,550 to be exact, the venue remains the best site for cricket and AFL events in Canberra.

“Love the variety of shows and performances you can see here and have always found the staff to be professional and helpful. The stairs inside the Arena can be a bit steep, so aim for the ground floor tickets if you have issues with heights or trouble climbing stairs.”
