Not quite MCG but has character

I have been coming to WACA for ten years as I have friends here. It is in need of repair as facilities aren't great but the ground has unique cricket character.

Whilst visiting Perth we thought we would have a look at the ground. There was a test match on. The seating was excellent and i just loved the grassed area for the children to play freely whilst their parents were watching the game. The atmosphere was lovely and friendly.

One of the world's best wickets and surface for cricket but facilities are now way outdated. Major redevelopment is required, and in particular more shade is needed for the spectators who sit and watch cricket over a 7 hour period in the middle of the day in one of the hotter capital cities in the world.

Being a Western Australian, I've been here many times and to be honest it hasn't really changed too much over the years - still a bit of a hotch-potch stadium but with a very relaxing feel to it. As long as you can find a spot out of the sun you're probably going to have a pretty good time!

Unless you pay top dollar (A$100+ per day) you have to roast in the sun at the WACA; they should really do something to protect everyone against the elements not just the fat cats in the hospitality boxes.

Visited on a day that had a one day game, so we were able to enjoy this iconic stadium in action. Not the busiest of days but friendly staff (apart from the grumpy lady in the box office, not the most welcoming face of the WACA) and generally clean & tidy facilities provided us with a good day out, even...

Ground was not open when we visited so had to be content with photos outside. There are tours available and these are signposted at the ground. A Red Cat bus stops there regularly.

"You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy." Obi Wan might have called out Mos Eisley as the worst place in the galaxy but surely the WACA ranks a close second. Crap beer, crap food, crap to get around and the worst part is the crowds. Full of bogans and wankers, idiots hurling racist abuse at... More

The WACA is actually the Westeren Australian Cricket Association. The WACA Ground, or just "the WACA" has seen many great duels between bowler and batsman, led by "LiIlee and Thompson" and the fearsome West Indies pace attack. The WACA is well looked after, normally you will have no trouble getting a ticket.

Historic ground it's just a shame they always set the pitch up so the Aussies always win. Special Test match venue.
