Abstract Contemporary Australian stadium developments are transit-oriented, implementing extensive travel demand management measures to curtail car access and promote public transport use. Conventional catchment appraisal techniques are inadequate for exploring the likely performance of a stadium location under such terms. Accessibility modelling offers a more incisive view. This research investigates proposed locations for a football stadium on Australia's Gold Coast, exploring its accessibility via the public transport system for city residents. Ease of access is defined in terms of travel time, considering all the legs of the public transport journey. This also includes time spent either walking to and from public transport stops, or interchanging between services. The results of the accessibility modelling suggest a recent decision by the proponents to locate the stadium at Carrara will be deleterious to future stadium and football team viability.
