The facility includes a significant community social space, suitable for both community and corporate events supported by a commercial kitchen. The facility also has office space and meeting rooms for administration, coaching, and training purposes. The facility also provides gender equitable change rooms for players and officials and associated training and support spaces for teams, officials and media.
The Baranduda Fields RegionalSoccer Stadium provides a playing arena that supports the ticketed game day events of the AWFA league games, including the provision of a total 700 seat covered stadium seating and supporting public facilities including external event spaces and informal viewing embankments of all the three soccer fields(including one synthetic training pitch)
The Baranduda Fields site is benefited by a significant native and cultural landscape, bearing presence to a significant scar tree and habitat for the endangered Slone froglets.
