Overview
More
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 also hosted 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.

I'm not a lover of cricket but decided to take the tour out of interest. Pleasantly surprised as there was much to see and the guide was very knowledgeable. There was actually an interstate match taking place and this provided abreast backdrop. The ground also...More

The tour is staffed by passionate volunteers (some o doubt more passionate than others) and takes about an hour to get around. The tour takes in the facilities but does not allow you to go on the playing field. The backstage areas are well explored...More

Of course you have to be a cricket fan to take this tour, but it is, oh, so wonderful. I enjoyed every minute of it - the iconic ground, the memorabilia, the interactive sections, the stautues of famous cricketers. It's awesome!

Hi If you went on a tour you would be able to take photos. The tours allow you access to the ground as well. They are very informative.
