Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne Reviews
An amazing stadium. Built for 100,000 and copes with the number exceedingly well! Views are good all around, plenty of pretty decent food, beer and coffee choices. Also houses the museum of sport and is surrounded by a beautiful park. It's a short tram ride from the CBD. This is a wonderful example of sport being integrated with city life. Just be careful if you're an England cricket fan, you're likely to see some excellent cricket here (and the locals will let you know constantly!)
World class stadium. Australia's best effort of a sporting arena with over a hundred years of history. Sadly none of the original structures remain with all grandstands being updated over the years. Oldest stand being constructed in 92'. Facilities good with train station nearby.
My visit to the MCG. was so much fun. The club rooms offer excellent restaurant and bar facilities. You can see the game or event from inside and you only need to step out the door to experience the amazing atmosphere. Check the added benefit from the men's room. The food and service was absolutely tops. I must say just to be in the club rooms. Had a red carpet effect on me, knowing that so many highly respected Athletes and officials have passed through there. Also all of the photos make for a good look.
Huge sports stadium with heaps of seating capacity. I will give it a 5 star if they will also build a bigger parking site because every time we come here, parking is always an issue esp during the championship games. It's either you park your car elsewhere and be prepared to walk the distance or take the public transportation.
Amazing atmosphere. Food and drink up there in price but not ridiculous like some venues and events. Public transport is so easy to use. Trams drop you right at the doorstep. Great place to watch the footy
