Carrara Stadium (known commercially as Metricon Stadium) is a sporting venue on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, located in the suburb of Carrara.
It received substantial redevelopment work prior to the entry of the Brisbane Bears to the VFL/AFL in 1987, but since the Bears relocated to the Gabba in 1993, it has been used for other sports including rugby league, rugby union and even baseball. The stadium will host the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
