The Duracraft Stadium was officially opened in 2006 by Her Worship the Mayor of Melville, Katherine Jackson. This international standard synthetic wet surface hockey field was developed by the Melville Hockey Club (Inc) with the assistance of Hockey WA, the Department of Sport and Recreation and the City of Melville.

The Turf is UV resistant synthetic fibre, overlaid on a compounded rubber surface to form a shock-absorbing pad. This is a reticulated "wet turf" facility, fully lit to allow night time usage.

Two player bunkers are located on the western side of the field, with seating and facilities for storing equipment.

A technical room is situated between the two player bunkers and has access to controls for the PA system and electronic scoreboard. Ample seating is available in this screened control area.

Three full size grass training fields are located alongside the turf facilities. These are ideal for warm-ups and post-game warm-downs.

There are two unisex change rooms for the home and away teams. The change rooms contain 8 showers and toilet facilities as well as a large change area. The change areas includes seating and a whiteboard for coaching use.

A large covered patio is situated south of the Clubhouse. Tables and chairs enable hockey enthusiasts to enjoy a meal and a drink whilst watching the game in progress. A gas heater ensures warmth for night games, whilst the west and south sides have pull-down clear blinds to keep rain out and warmth in. Two modern grandstands on the western side of the field ensure great viewing. There is also an elevated, covered video photography facility at the north-western corner.

Safety nets are installed at the front of the viewing area to prevent damage from incoming balls.

In the Clubhouse itself, there is a bar, pool table, TV and seating facilities. Duracraft Stadium has full bar facilities. A wide range of non-alcoholic and sports beverages are available, as well as beer, spirits and good quality wines. Prices are moderate and the service excellent. Snacks such as crisps, nuts and confectionery are also available over the bar.

Duracraft Stadium has full catering facilities. Our kitchen prepares healthy and satisfying meals as well as nutritious snacks. A blackboard menu is available daily during hockey tournaments. There are also several barbeques situated in the grass courtyard beside the patio.

A large ice machine is situated in the grass courtyard near the home change rooms.

Adequate parking facilities are available, including disabled parking and access to the viewing area.
