Sunshine Coast Stadium at Stockland Park is a modern regional venue located at Kawana Waters (near Caloundra) on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
Having constructed the main field at Stockland Park (formerly known as Quad Park) to national standard in 2007, the Sunshine Coast Regional Council agreed to further develop the precinct by constructing a grandstand with high standard player and spectator facilities that would comply with State Sports Venue standards.
The $10 million grandstand was completed in June 2011 and includes seating for 1,050 and high standard player and spectator facilities across three levels, state of the art player change rooms, coaches’ boxes, medical rooms and catering facilities. Temporary seating boosts total capacity to around the 12,000 mark.
Original plans for the grandstand were for it to include 3,700 seats and be curved in shape to allow for Australian Football matches at the venue with temporary seats bringing fans closer for rectangular sports.
Sunshine Coast Stadium caters for Rugby League, Rugby Union as well as Football and has played host to pre-season NRL and A-League matches.
