While we finalise our submission for assessment through the Project of State Significance process, we are excited to share this first sneak peak of our concept designs.

We have strived to create a welcoming, functional, and uniquely Tasmanian experience.

The design of our multipurpose stadium has been inspired by the history of our site, a connection to place, the experiences we want to create and the opportunities this development will provide for Tasmania, both in bringing this stadium to life and when we open the doors.

The stadium includes:

  • A 1,500-person function room with views to kunanyi/ Mount Wellington.

  • A design informed by modelling cricket ball trajectory data to ensure we are ready to host the best quality cricket games.

  • A stage pocket in the northern stand to support concerts and events, which will minimise impact on the field and reduce costs for event operators.

  • Easy to follow and accessible design features – including a single continuous concourse that services the whole stadium, which means you can enter any gate and easily find your seat.

  • A seating bowl design that will bring crowds closer to the action.

  • Separated back of house and catering facilities with a below ground service road to separate vehicles and stadium visitors and users.

  • A carefully designed cutting-edge design including a timber and steel framed fixed ETFE transparent roof, which will see Tasmania leading the world in structured timber roofing solutions.

Quiet, clever, but humble, just like Tasmanians. We encourage you to join in sharing this sneak peak of our designs while we finalise our detailed planning submission. And look forward to sharing more details with you shortly.
