The 100,000-capacity venue plays host to matches of the city's cricket club and was the site of the 1992 Cricket World Cup final and the 1956 Olympic Games. Massive music concerts attract noncricket fans. Join one of numerous daily tours and then visit the National Sports Museum, home to Australian sports memorabilia. Of course, for a truly memorable experience, attend a match among the cricket-mad faithful.

  • This is one of the best cricket ground I have visited. Old but well maintained. It is not only a stadium but also a museum. There is a guided tour which I found pretty useful. For the people who wants to touch and feel the ground, you have Melbourne Open Day . On that day you are allowed to get on to the ground and enjoy. Above all it’s free. I would say, it’s a must visit place in Melbourne.
  • One of the great cricket stadium that I have ever visited. The really big ground with helping staff. I visited the stadium on the day of match between local teams of Australia, but really enjoyed. Lot of food options are available here including vegan food. Museum is also there. Must visit place.
  • Oh oh oh! We saw the Big Bash here! It was fun. A little hard to find our seats but the staff were really helpful! We had lots of fun. The tv screens are really big so you don't miss anything. We saw famous people.
  • Great sports facility to view any type of sport. Clean and reasonably priced. Vegan food options limited almost non existent. They do have some vegetarian options, although have been getting better over the years. If you have a dietary requirement I would consider taking your own food.
  • Been here many times, but the view of the green still gives me goosebumps. This place is what dreams are made of. The game day is great but the visit with MCC volunteers on non game day is special. National sports museum, along with all function rooms make this a great asset for the city of Melbourne.
