Tony Ireland Stadium comprises an Australian Football League (AFL) and cricket oval, a 1,000-seat grandstand and supporting facilities, the Riverway Oval, and cricket practice nets.
Tony Ireland Stadium has been home to AFL and cricket matches at local, regional, state, and national levels.
The stadium features a two storey grandstand, featuring a cantilevered roof curving in both cross and long sections, which rises from just above the spectator berms.
The lower level incorporates change rooms, storage for gardening equipment, externally accessible amenities, an AFL Townsville development office, a shared meeting room, and facilities for medical and drug testing.
The upper level features a shared AFL, cricket and corporate lounge with club administration, amenities, kitchen, store, and management and meeting rooms, and is the home of the Thuringowa Bulldogs and Queensland AFL.
There is also wheelchair access to the main entrance at the southern end of the stand with entry to the field and all the lower level facilities.
The Riverway Oval underwent a $250,000 lighting upgrade in July 2010, allowing opportunities for more sport and community events to be staged at the oval.
