The Sydney Cricket and Sports Ground Trust is responsible for managing two of Australia’s premier sports venues – the Sydney Cricket Ground and Allianz Stadium. 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. The Sydney Cricket Ground provides the perfect balance between the big crowd atmosphere and intimacy with the on-field action. These aspects, combined with the location of the venue, make visiting the SCG a special experience for all patrons.

Great venue to watch the Sydney Swans play. The atmosphere with the supporters is amazing. Good for families. Kick to kick at the end of the game is definitely great for the kids ( and big kids at heart) Only issue I had was the cost of food and drinks, especially if you are visiting from interstate and not equipped...

This ground has some history and makes it a bit more interesting than your average ground. Having said that, if you are looking for a lot of amenities, this probably isn't the place for you to go. Go see the Swans play. Get there at least an hour and a half before the game. There is the Swans shop to... More

Probably a common complaint however the facilites at the SCG are pretty good overall. That is except for the ladies toilets. They are in desperate need of upgrading and providing more cubicles to accommodate the amount of people attending.

We were at the Sydney Cricket Grounds May 27 for the AFL Sydney Swans vs North Melbourne, watching Sydney drub the Kangaroos 91-65 (14.7 to 9.11 – goals/behind, see I did retain something!) We were fresh off the plane that morning from Canada but my mates wanted to get us in the mood for Australia right away. The crowd was... More

It wasn't too easy finding the meeting point "Venue Services" on Driver Avenue. Would have thought there would be more signage. That is my only real complaint however we still made it on time and got to meet some of the Warratahs along the way :) The grounds were lovely but let's be honest, the one thing that can make...

I and my cricket crazy family visited SCG last month. We did the escorted tour @ 10 30 am local time. The tour was little over an hour. Our tour guide Nick Martin was an amazing person. He took us around the locker rooms, player areas, pavilion, press rooms and finally to the ground. He patiently answered all questions from... More
