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.

A lifelong ambition to visit the SCG for an Ashes test & wasn't disappointed. Fantastic new development along with the iconic members pavilion makes it one of the great test grounds.
Public transport to & from the ground was easy & efficient as was entry into the ground. Friendly staff point you in the right direction. Good view from all parts of the ground.
Agreed, food & beverage is expensive but no more than any other cricket ground i've visited. The service though was excellent even in the busy lunch & tea intervals.
If you like your cricket you'll love the SCG.

- Excellent Tour Guide
- Tour group was too big
- If you are a die hard cricket fan - which I am, it was enjoyable as you go into the players dressing room and members area and hear about the heritage of the building and it is awesome being in the spot were cricketing legends have been - but if you are not, then just go to the SCG Museum at the same ground.
- I still thought it was over priced

Had a good day, expensive food and drinks, but that's to be expected. Good atmosphere and friendly staff.
