Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne Reviews - Write a Review
One of the world’s best stadiums. Seating for 100,000 spectators, well-equipped bars and food venues all around the ground, and easy access. Car parking is obviously difficult here during big events, so public transport is recommended (and convenient). If you get the chance, come here for the annual Boxing Day test match starting on 26 December.
Amazing Melbourne. Great stadium with wide option of sporting events. Voted one of the best cities to live in many times! Incredible clean city and suburbs. Lots of great restaurants representing wide variety of cuisines. Their food tastes perfect! Awesome Melbourne and awesome Australia.
Great when full, but not always. Home to the best sports in the world Aussie Rules football and cricket. Hosts afl grand final. Boxing day test. Good but Adelaide Oval better.
It's big, great sport, but they rip you off on the catering. Easy access as it is on public transport. Great viewpoints of the games, best to Watch AFL and Cricket as they are full field games. Football (soccer) is not great here as the field is in the middle of an oval and players look like ants.
Sports museum is great, heads up on the tour though. My wife and I did it in June 2015, just us so we were asked to wait around after the normal start time in case someone else showed up. A group of 3 corporates in suits turned up after start time and joined us (we were dressed casual, I had a club jumper on) at which point the guide refused to answer any of our questions and laughed at us for trying to talk to her. I'd still recommend the tour, but either dress so you look important, or do the tour with other people dressed similar, it's shameful but they do profile you and treat you accordingly.
