Suncorp Stadium is waiting patiently for Wednesday's 'State of Origin' Rugby League decider. In Brisbane, this is a very big deal and it's likely to be a tad busier round here on the day of the game.
The stadium itself is in the Milton area and very close to a couple of neighbourhoods (you can see some of the houses reflected in the glass). It hosts big sports games but also music concerts and is often really loud. If the wind is right, you can hear it in my back yard in West End - across the river and several kilometres away.
I heard once that if you live in one of the neighbourhoods in the shadow of the stadium then you get free tickets but I think it might just be a rumour.
