Location, location, location. Three words synonymous with apartment hunting.

Is it close to transport? Is it close to parks? Is it close to schools? All legitimate questions that need to be satisfied. But what if you’re a sports fan? 

Well, we have done the research for you and found apartments that are located in close proximity to a variety of sporting grounds in Australia’s largest cities. Let’s take a look.

Silk One — The Gabba 

Big cricket or AFL fan? Well, you could be a short amble away from one of Australia’s famous sporting grounds.

Silk One is part of a huge redevelopment project around the Woolloongabba Precinct, which includes The Queensland Government’s new $5.4 billion Cross River Rail Station.


Designed by Nettleton Tribe, an architect renowned for quality, Silk One will feature an Australian-first Skystand seating area which looks directly into the Gabba stadium field. From Test cricket matches to AFL games and concerts by some of the world’s greatest musical talents, Silk One’s Skystand guarantees you the best seats in the house.


Complete with a rooftop pool, gym, and spa, you may want to stay in rather than go down to the cheap-seats below. 

Moonee Valley Park — Moonee Valley Racecourse 

If horse racing is your sport of choice, then Moonee Valley Park in Melbourne will put you right on top of the action. 

The Moonee Valley Racecourse, an icon in Melbourne’s inner-north, is about to undergo a profound $2.5 billion urban regeneration thanks to developer Hamton and partner Hostplus.


Part of the regeneration will involve 20 hectares of parkland and green open spaces — where else in Melbourne can you buy an inner-city home with a back garden that size? 

The fields of Moonee Valley Racecourse will be reserved for racing for 30 days of the year  but transformed into a unique area for an active lifestyle for the rest of the time.


The first release of residences, Feehan Row, will be available in September this year.

The Surry — Allianz Stadium and Sydney Cricket Ground

All your sporting needs are also covered in Sydney with The Surry.

This inner-city apartment development is a short 10-minute drive from the SCG and Allianz Stadium in Moore Park — you could even walk there in less than 25 minutes. Whether it’s rugby, cricket or AFL you’re all set. 


Inside The Surry, life is made easy. Open plan and light-filled, an urban sanctuary greets you with generous space and style. Peace. Tranquility. Space to luxuriate in… An inner-city haven to call home. But don’t get too comfortable, there’s a game out there to go and watch.
