Closed/Former Venue

Burswood Dome

The now-demolished Burswood Dome was a large enclosed entertainment, sports and special events venue located at Crown Perth (formerly the Burswood Entertainment complex). With an arena equivalent in size to an international soccer pitch, the Dome was designed to stage the largest of events with total seating capacity for up to 20,000 people with the use of temporary seating. Its vast arena covered 8,800 square metres (118 x 74.5 metres) and is surrounded by permanent tiered seating for 13,600 people.

A feature of the Dome's design was the enormous inflated teflon coated fibreglass roof which soars to a height of 35 metres. A ground support system is available to hang large concert production rigs. The domed roof enables natural light to filter into the complex and is held in position by a series of cables arranged in a special grid pattern. Eight huge fans maintain constant air pressure to ensure the roof is fully inflated at all times.

The venue played host to many sports in the past including Tennis and Basketball and was the home of the annual Hopman Cup prior to it moving to the new Perth Arena in 2013. The Burswood Dome is closed soon after and demolition of the venue commenced in mid-2013.
