Both venues are located at Moore Park, only 4km from the central business district and adjacent to the popular bars, restaurants, cinemas and shops of the Entertainment Quarter. The historic Sydney Cricket Ground boasts an impressive list of credentials, encompassing cricket, Australian Rules Football, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Soccer, Baseball, Cycling and major concerts by the Rolling Stones, Billy Joel and Elton John, Michael Jackson, Madonna, the Eagles, Prince, Green Day and the Wave Aid concert.

15 of us attended the Swans v GWS match on Saturday afternoon and were privileged to be in a suite for the event. The suite was spacious and well maintained. Our suite attendant Susan was absolutely brilliant. She is seriously one of the best food & beverage attendants I have ever encountered. She hosted the room like we were visiting... More

My father first took me to the iconic SCG in 1969 to watch a Test Match between Australia and the West Indies. I have been there several times since then but the recent CWC 2015 Semi Final between Australia and India was my first visit since the massive overhaul to the venue. My friends and I had our seats in... More

Went for a World Cup semi final clash between Australia Vs India. The stadium is absolutely amazing. It was packed with indian supporters but sadly for them they lost. I always wanted to visit the SCG and it was definitely a dream come true.

Cricket World Cup: South Africa v West Indies - Group outing with club & team. (Dads and sons). For someone that doesn't like cricket it was an awesome day and fantastic game. Lots of families , so next day out will be with the whole family. Food was mediocre and could be better, but that did not spoil the day.... More

I went to SCG to watch India vs Austraila Semi Final clash as part of ICC 2015 world cup contest. The view inside the stadium is just awesome and I still remember the place and the buzz even now. The entry was so seamless, staffs were supportive. I was sitting in Member's Pavellion and it offered amazing view of the... More

I have been to many cricket stadiums around the world and there are not many better than the Sydney Cricket Ground. Despite its recent expansions and modern amenities, the ground elegantly preserves its history as well. There is free wifi and the place is easily accessible by public transportation, free buses during game days. I had the pleasure of watching... More

Been to SCG many a times. But this Quarter Final between Sri Lanka and South Africa on 18th March was a different game. Venue: We were able to seat at members and could see the cricket icons like Stayen, Sangkara, Hashim Amal and old veteran Donald from the close quarter. Atmosphere: Very colourful. Illuminated side board showing the sign of... More

Unfortunately the one day it decided to rain in Sydney over the weekend it was Friday the 13th.... The ground was lovely, easy to get around and lots of space. Wasn't packed mind you, but a good atmosphere anyway. Very expensive drinks available at the bar, of which the choice is limited mind you. Shame about the game but the... More

Went to the cricket, Afghanistan Vs England. Had Members Pavilion tickets which were a little more expensive, but able access to the museum and the new stand. There is a lot of history still in the pavilion. A nice stadium that is easy to get to and from, now the new foot bridge is open.
