    The Greatest & Iconic Melbourne Cricket Stadium Tour
    Must visit Melbourne attraction for all cricket enthusiasts in this sports loving city housing the maximum number of sporting arena / venues in the world.. Special attraction in the guided tour of MCG Stadium is the iconic photo frame of legendary Don Bradman with Sachin Tendulkar. A recent addition is the statue of legendary spinner, Shane Warne, near Gate no. 3 of the Stadium.

    A fantastic tour!
    A fantastic experience! We visited the MCG and toured the ground with our excellent guide Graeme. Graeme was helpful, knowledgable and enthusiastic about the MCG and found we learnt a lot about the grounds history. The ticket was reasonably priced with entry to the sports museum included which was great for young children. We fully enjoyed our time at the MCG

We loved this tour. Being huge cricket fans we were keen to see this amazing stadium. We had the privilege of being shown round by MCC member Bryan Dunlop who was more than happy to share his knowledge with enthusiasm.
We included the sports museum tour.
We purchased tickets to watch an AFL match the next evening. COLLINGWOOD v SYDNEY SWANS.
Such an exciting sport. We had an amazing time. Well worth watching. The huge crowd consisted of supporters from both teams who mixed without any issues. Hopefully our next visit will be to watch an ashes cricket match.
The ground is easily accessible via Danihers way and a beautiful walk along the Yarra river.

We’re currently touring Australia and are avid cricket fans so thought it would be nice to visit as many of the international cricket venues as we can whilst we’re here. We toured Adelaide Oval last month which was awesome.
Two weeks before we came here this place hosted three iconic nights of Taylor Swift which I would imagine would have been awesome.
We were taken around by our tour guide via different parts of the stadium and given facts about the history of the ground etc.
All in all it was an awesome day.

A really excellent experience which my wife (not a cricket fan and neither of know Aussie Rules) enjoyed as much as I did. A lovely friendly welcome, we were early but they put us on an earlier slot with our guide Carol….who was excellent. Friendly, efficient, full of knowledge and inclusive
The tour takes you everywhere behind the scenes, though not on the grass which was being re-laid anyway after the Taylor Swift concerts
Highly recommended although we booked via Trip Advisor with loads of options since the MCG website offered no availability for weeks!

Visited with my wife. My eldest son gave me two tour tickets for my birthday, when he heard we planned to visit the ground whilst in Melbourne. Being a great cricket fan it was a tremendous gift, and I have to say this is one of the best stadium tours I have ever been on. The staff were great, and the guide was very experienced, and provided some huge insights into the history of the ground. A memory I will keep for ever!

I never knew it was the Melbourne Cricket Ground, I always thought it was the 'triple M C G ' I was shocked. PS the building is round.
