2009 - Brisbane

Postby Sico 17 on Thu Jan 01, 2009 11:52 am

Brisbane, Queensland
Gabba Ground - Games played here in 2009
Round 1 vs Brisbane – Saturday March 28 6:10pm

Tickets
Ticketek or Ph: 132 849
Gabba Seating Plan - Seats in blocks 21 to 23 should be behind the West Coast interchange bench.
Getting to the ground
The Gabba is walking distance from the city across the Brisbane River. Or you can take the bus to "The Fiveways", Woolloongabba. The nearest train stop is Vulture Street train station, which is about a 15 minute walk to the ground.

Accommodation
Wellington Apartment Hotel
Great place to stay for a football weekend. Short 10 minute walk to the Gabba Ground and only a short walk and a City Ferry away from Brisbane City Centre and Southbank. Reasonably priced and across the road from the Shafston Hotel which has a fantastic restaurant.
