Adelaide Oval, Adelaide

(4.6/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Stunning stadium. Amazing visuals, especially during twilight cricket matches. Excellent layout, signage, and easy to get around. Typically the stadium food and drink is expensive. Staff are helpful.
  • Amazingly beautiful stadium with elegant design! The service is outstanding, fast and the staff are friendly and helpful. The view inside the stadium is wonderful and I did enjoy the game here very much. Highly recommended!!!
  • Makes me feel proud to be a Croweater such a beautiful functional eco friendly place. Love the heritage scoreboard & location location location 🏩
  • Great atmosphere, well set out, plenty of toilets and food outlets. Only negative is the price of food is crazy for what you get! Eat out in the city or north adelaide before you go to the oval.
  • Since the re-build, this place is great. Word class oval. The grass standing area is awesome! Wish the MCG had some of these features - top oval!
