The Gabba is an inclusive venue, featuring a ‘Quiet Room’ - a highly absorbing, quiet and calm environment which can help to provide a calm and comfortable oasis for overactive and distressed individuals.
The room includes sensory conscious games, quiet cubicles, tactile wall panels and bean bags to assist children and others who are overwhelmed in a stadium environment. The room is located in a low traffic area, away from the busy stadium environment, on level 2 near Gate 4 and can be accessed on event days. During your visit to the Gabba, event staff can assist you with any questions you might have, if you get lost or need help locating the Quiet Room, look for the Gabba branded T-Shirts, venue staff are well trained and are happy to help.
Sensory bags, equipped with noise cancelling headphones and fidget tools, are available to any individual who may feel overwhelmed by the environement, which gives them the option to enjoy the show with their family or group. These are available to be borrowed from the First Aid Rooms at Gates 2, 4, 7 & 9.
