  • Swimmer & Spectator Ticketing
  • All tickets are pre-purchased via Ticketbooth; Spectators $7 (plus fees) and competing swimmers (free). Each ticket is for a specific section, row and seat in the grandstand which must be used by attendees during the event. Any coaches who wish to sit in the grandstand must also organise a Ticketbooth ticket (complimentary).

    The full grandstand will be in use for Heats Sessions (Sunday - Friday), in line with current Qld Health guidelines (e.g. 100% ticketed seating), with almost 4000 seats available there will be plenty available to accommodate all spectators and swimmers wishing to attend.

    You only need to purchase Finals tickets once you know you've made the Final. There are almost 2000 seats will be available, more than double what we will require and tickets will not sell out.

    Please note for Finals sessions (Sunday - Friday) seating will be in the Western grandstand.
