Owner description: 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.

“History and Beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

If you're visiting from a non-cricketing nation, it's worth ging to the cricket for the day. Aussies will be happy to introduce you to our favourite sport. If you can't a game, take a tour. The cricketing history here is amazing. Visit the actual dressing rooms of the teams and admire the gorgeous old architecture of the Member's and Ladies' stands. This place has been the heart of Aussie sport for over 100 years!
