We were at the SCG for all 4 days of the test match in this years Ashes and despite the result (yes we are England fans) we had a great experience. We also went to a Big Bash game between Sydney Sixers & Perth Scorchers. The beer was a little weak and the pies cold but other than the the... More

An extremely generous and appropriately presented tour of the SCG and Allianz Stadium for our Support Unit students on 13/6/14. The information was passed on in an age appropriate and respectful manner by our wonderful guide - KN. Thank You SCG Trust.

Having traveled to Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and the Gold Coast was really looking forward to ticking the SCG box. No public transport included in ticket price - SCG not on main train line. Very easy ticket collection - ground entry and seat location. Game great Sydney v Port Adelaide but view on a beautiful Saturday afternoon - not up to... More

This is a great place to watch a game of cricket. A mixture of both modern and Colonial architecture with great synergy of both. Something very special about the SCG has a real energy to it. The Noble stand is the best place to watch the cricket, from behind the bowlers arm.

Eat before you go to the SCG. The food is overpriced and certainly not for healthy consumption. The biggest waste of money. $25 for parking on the grass ain't a bargain. The SCG needs to take seriously the standard of food sold. They have spent a fortune on all the changes to the building which are terrific.

I grew up in Melbourne where a special treat was watching footie at the MCG with a Four n twenty pie. Today, that magic has gone and the idea of it is better than the real thing. Saved myself for the obligatory pie but I shouldn't have bothered - it was totally inedible, probably in the warming tray all day... More

Recently watched an AFL game here and must say I was impressed with the venue! Suggest purchasing allocated seats as general admission is fairly small and you are not guaranteed a good seat or even a seat at all! The seating is set up so that even the 'worst' seats can still see the action and everyone is aided by... More

Saw the Swans get well and truly beaten by North Melbourne but a great afternoon out! Got general admission tickets which don't guarantee seating so get there early if you're in a big group. Some cover and decent views from the back of the seating if you're looking for shelter.

The official tour covers SCG and the Allianz stadium next door. Access to all the inner sanctums (or sancti?) walking on the hallowed turf, and a very well-informed and relaxed tour guide.
