Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG)
The largest stadium in the Southern Hemisphere and one of the most famous sporting venues in Australia, Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is more than a Melbourne landmark. The legendary stadium has hosted the Olympic Games, the Commonwealth Games, the annual Boxing Day Test Match, and Australian Football League (AFL) Grand Final.
 
The Basics
Attend one of the regular AFL games and cricket test matches for the most atmospheric experience at Melbourne Cricket Ground. A guided tour takes you behind the scenes, including the player’s dressing rooms, the cricketers’ viewing room, the Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) Long Room and Library, and gives you access to views of Melbourne from the City Terrace.
 
Don’t miss the on-site National Sports Museum where you can learn more about the history of the MCG, admire priceless Aussie sports memorabilia, visit the AFL and cricket halls of fame, and take part in fun interactive activities.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Although some tickets are available daily on a first-come first-served basis, it’s best to book match tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
  • Tours must be booked in advance.
  • On-site facilities include drinking water fountains, free Wi-Fi, ATMs, restrooms, and a selection of bars and food vendors in each stand.
  • All entrants to the grounds are required to undergo security checks, and large bags and suitcases are not permitted.
  • Each stand has wheelchair accessible areas and facilities, but advance booking is recommended.
 
How to Get There
Melbourne Cricket Ground, located east of Downtown Melbourne, is about a 10-minute walk from Federation Square. Regular trams run from the city center, and the closest train stations are Jolimont and Richmond.
 
When to Get There
The MCG hosts AFL games in the winter months (March–September), culminating in the AFL Grand Final in September; cricket matches are held in summer (September–April). Tours are only available on non-match days, and only ticket holders can access the National Sports Museum on match days, although it’s best to avoid the grounds entirely on match days, as spectators overrun the entire area.
 
The Melbourne Sports and Entertainment Precinct
Olympic Park, Melbourne Park, and Yarra Park make up the Melbourne Sports and Entertainment Precinct. The MCG, the Punt Road Oval, and the National Sports Museum are in Yarra Park. Olympic Park holds the 30,000-capacity AAMI Park, the Olympic Park Oval, and the Holden Centre. Melbourne Park has the Rod Laver Arena music venue and home to the Australian Open, Melbourne Arena (mostly used for national basketball and netball games), the Margaret Court Arena, and the Melbourne Park Tennis Complex.


Address: Brunton Avenue, Yarra Park, Jolimont, Melbourne 3002, Australia

The gentleman who took us around the ground was very knowledgable and it was wonderful to see the famous ground. However it was very rushed and we were not given enough time to look at the some of the wonderful photos and works of arts on display. I would rather have paid more to have at least 1/2 hour more!
