Adelaide Oval, Adelaide

4.6
One of the country’s most iconic sporting venues, Adelaide Oval holds an elevated status as the home of cricket and Australian rules football in South Australia. Imposing and white-roofed, the stadium towers above the leafy suburb of North Adelaide. Constructed in 1871, the 2012 redevelopment of Adelaide Oval brought the historic stadium in line with the modern demands of large sporting venues. The stadium often hosts concerts, with artists such as Elton John, Madonna, and Fleetwood Mac having performed there.

  • Cricket not so good but the stadium itself should be visited when in Adelaide. Excellent food and drink concessions available, very clean everywhere even the toilets. Tours and roof walks available.  more »

  • I loved the "old school" Adelaide oval, but, The first time I walked into the NEW Adelaide oval, I was gobsmacked. It's bloody amazing. Now, I can't keep away from the place. Supporting the POWER, watching the rugby league when we have it ( bring back the RAMS). and, of course, The cricket and the odd music concert.
  • Lovely views. Bars are good. Beer is expensive. Best oval in the world. 5 stars if beer was cheaper
  • A modern stadium with great facilities. Most patrons are under cover or partially under cover. When full it has a great atmosphere.
  • Awesome venue for Aussie Rules Football. Great seating and atmosphere. Love coming here.😍
  • Adelaide Oval is a great place; a ton of seating (over 50 000 seats in the stands). The only downside for me is the pricing of food. It's way overpriced and is a letdown. Still, it's enjoyable.

Where to stay in Adelaide

Most budget-friendly rooms in Adelaide cluster in the central business district, with plenty of backpacker accommodations located near the city's central bus station. Adelaide also boasts an outstanding public transport system, which makes staying outside the central areas a viable and economical option for sightseers. Look for quiet and affordable rooms in North Adelaide, a leafy neighborhood filled with an eclectic mix of shopping and dining options. Book early for visits during peak season, and expect higher prices on the weekends and during school holidays.
