Description

The Australian Heritage Places Inventory notes that the Grandstand has been “described as a ‘red brick building with nautical appearance’, the grandstand was designed in 1938 in the office of Marsh and Michelson with the collaboration of Stuart Calder. The style is moderne and the ‘heroic’ styling of the building is portrayed by the forward sweeping tower which houses the time keeper and reporters. The sweeping curved canopy and the footballers’ race at ground level give the building a flowing and dynamic shape.
