Been to boxing days tests couple years in a row now. The ashes series was amazing and it is a great place to watch cricket no doubt about it but i've never seen over policing like it before. Everywhere you look theres police, constantly walking up and down the sections, kicking people out for drinking beer and sometimes even blocking the view of the game. Think there needs to be a little more leeway with rules.

I went to all three days of the 2021 Ashes Boxing Day Test at the MCG & was so impressed by the COVID protocols, which were enforced by helpful & smiling staff. The atmosphere at the G had to be experienced to be believed & more than one commentator suggested it was the best place in the world for cricket. It is wheelchair friendly with designated seats, entry points & lifts.

This was the first week after COVID reopening for a tour. I did the tour 20 years ago so a bit has changed. Our guide was super helpful and had a great knowledge of the ground. It was good to see the history of both the old and new of the ground. The museum has a good collection of cricket, olympic,AFL and horse racing memrobillia and a hall of fame board. It is worth a vist

Known as the MCG, or just the ‘G’, this stadium is the centrepiece of Australian sport. It is currently the largest and possibly the most prestigious stadium in the country. Hopefully soon the stands will be full again.

The home of footy. But also the original home of cricket. We discovered the excellent bill Lawry cricket centre while walking the kids around to burn some energy. Another interesting thing to view

An amazing stadium if you go to a football game with a large crowd. Can not wait to get back when lockdown ends.
