Carrara Indoor Stadium is a multi-purpose arena located at Carrara on Queensland's Gold Coast and can accommodate 1,600 fans, with additional seating provided if required which can push total capacity for events such as basketball up to 2,962. The stadium stands adjacent to the 25,000 seat Metricon Stadium and forms part of the Carrara Sports Complex. The stadium has the nickname The Greenhouse as even during winter it would get "Hot and steamy as Hades at times", although that changed with $800,000 worth of improvements in 1996 including new air conditioning.[1]

The stadium was the home of former National Basketball League team the Gold Coast Rollers who played there from 1990 until 1996, after which their licence was revoked due to financial struggles. The stadium later became the training venue for the NBL's Gold Coast Blaze who played at the larger 5,269 seat Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre until the team folded after the 2011–12 NBL season.

Carrara Indoor Stadium's flexible design means it is regularly used for sporting activities ranging from soccer and basketball through to figure skating. The stadium has also been used to hold expos as well special dinners and functions.[2]

With the Gold Coast winning the right to host the 2018 Commonwealth Games, plans were put in place to develop a new indoor venue at Carrara under the name of Carrara Sport and Leisure Centre, which will replace the Carrara Indoor Stadium and is slated to host the badminton competition.[3][4]

Squash Australia moved their headquarters to the Carrara Indoor Stadium in 2018.[5]

Transcription

well today we're announcing on Commonwealth day the most inclusive largest Parasports programms at a Commonwealth Games 38 events on the program across seven sports which will be the largest program in Commonwealth Games history. This year's theme of the commonwealth is an inclusive Commonwealth and it is we couldn't think of a better fitting announcement to make on Commonwealth Day in this great year than the incorporation and the inclusion of the largest parasport program ever A jump from Glasgow 2014 to Gold Coast 2018 in relation to the nature and type of sports that are going to be on offer triathlon's probably the the biggest surprise paratriathlon which is making its debut in Rio 2016 will also be on the 2018 program and really looks to provide a fantastic multi disability opportunity for athletes to get out there and show their stuff and fairly innovative work is going to be in athletics and by the inclusion of wheelchair racers in the marathon events I think that'll add a new dynamic where people will actually get to see outside instead the stadium's our athletes on the streets of gold coast and really just get a real feel for the power of parasport I'm really excited about the announcement of the parasport programme. For me this will be my potentially the last time that I get to pull on the green and gold jersey and I couldn't think of a more suitable event to be my last one here on the gold coast my first Commonwealth Games was in Manchester in 2002 where we for the first time but a 12 event program together over five sports that fully integrated athletes for the first time this is something that's been dear to my heart. it was how I first was integrated myself into the Commonwealth but the strides that we've made towards Gold Coast 2018 are absolutely fantastic equitable opportunities for all athletes across the commonwealth
