  • Well, the match was pretty boring, but the ground was very special. We were there during covid so the staff did a great job to keep everyone safe.  more »
  • 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.
