Catch The Beach Boys 50th Anniversary Tour at Allphones Arena in Sydney (no support act – they do the whole two hours). Now, how did this Olympic Park venue get its name? Aren’t mobile phones banned from concerts because of camera copyright and the irritation factor? Oh!  They don’t look exactly like the photo above any more…

… could be lots of walking frames on stage and off, so here’s the disabled access info!

Allphones Arena strives to ensure all patrons have a thoroughly enjoyable experience and accessibility is easy – when constructed for the Sydney Olympics, the design set a new benchmark for venues with disability access.

  • Up to two percent of the seating capacity caters specifically for wheelchair patrons and their companion.
  • Wheelchair positions are configured to enable wheelchair patrons and their companion to sit together.
  • Allphones Arena has been designed with three main public points of entry that are fully accessible; the Grand Foyer, the Northern Foyer and the Corporate Suite Guest Entrance. All levels of the building are accessible via lifts located adjacent to each entry and all patron lifts are fully accessible.
  • Accessible facilities are provided in change rooms for teams, officials and performers.
  • All access ramps longer than 5 metres are wide enough to allow two wheelchairs to pass simultaneously at any location along the path of travel.
  • Turnstiles are configured to enable wheelchair patron access into Allphones Arena via mainstream routes.
  • Signage and direction devices have been designed with 306 colour contrasts for sight impaired patrons. Counters at ticket windows and food concession outlets are provided at a height accessible for wheelchair use.
  • All restroom facilities have been designed for patrons with special needs and are easily accessible on every level.
  • Service Animals (trained Guide Dogs) are always welcome at the Allphones Arena.
