Owner description: The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is Australia's largest, oldest and most popular sporting venue. The MCG has hosted plenty of international cricket, including the first-ever Test and the 1992 World Cup final, countless VFL/AFL Grand Finals, the 1956 Olympic Games and 2006 Commonwealth Games. It will also host the final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Other sporting spectacles include FIFA World Cup soccer qualifiers, rugby league home and away matches and State of Origin and international rugby union clashes. Apart from its sporting events, the MCG has also witnessed many blockbuster music concerts, and even Pope John Paul II held a mass there when he visited Melbourne in 1986. The MCG has a total capacity of 100,024 people, comprising 95,024 seats and 5000 standing room spaces. The stadium also houses the National Sports Museum, which includes some of the most priceless pieces of memorabilia in Australian sporting history.

“Well worth your time and money.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Easy to get to by tram from the City CBD, or if you like walking it was easy. Wonderful experience, friendly staff. Do not miss it. We bought the MYKi transport card for the public transprt, that gives you a 2 for 1 deal at the National Sports Museum in the same complex.

It was awesome to see MCG that I have been wanting to visit since I was a kid. Take the guided tour -- the MCG member/guide made history come alive for us.

“MCG Tour an excellent option”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

My wife and I had a few hours spare before we could check in and so we took the MCG tour. This is good value and we both found the tour to be very interesting. Had lunch at one of the many restaurants at the ground and was only sad that there wasn't a game on during our stay.
