Mars Stadium

Mars Stadium is Ballarat’s premium sports oval and is located at Wendouree. It has recently undergone a $15million upgrade to the western stand. The stadium adjoins the North Ballarat Sports Club. Designated disabled parking is available in the sports club car park.

There are a variety of seating options available to patrons with a disability. In front of the sports club is a raised section that caters for wheelchair patrons and single accompanying guest. There is a full row in front of those seats for other members of larger groups to sit together. Those seats are elevated and access is gained either through the sports club, with a ramp from the car park, or through the entry gate adjacent to the sports club and a ramp immediately to the right inside the gate.

Accessible toilets are available inside the gate and within the sports club. The portable “Marvaloo” adult changing facility will be permanently located inside the gate to service the stadium’s major events.

On the eastern side of the ground, in front of the grass hill is a series of ground level designed accessible seating locations. They are located between groups of four fixed seats and would suit family and groups of friends. These seats are open seating with no shelter from the weather or shade.

The new western stand has a series of designated disability seating locations that are raised with ramp access from the back of the stand. Each location has two companion seats. Disabled toilet facilities are available at the western stand.
