Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked a tour of the actual site and it was well worth the visit simply to hear the history of the place - speed-car racing who would have known.
Totally different to being there as a spectator.
Being shown areas usually out of bounds to the general public and hearing the history was terrific. Wow do those broadcasters have an excellent view.

The WACA saw one of the greatest combination of wickets takers in Australian cricket, with wicket keeper Rodney Marsh and express paceman Dennis Lillee, "caught Marsh, bowled Lillee." Both were Western Australians, who teamed up to make a great cricketing wicket taking combinastion. that is yet to be broken.

The WACA Ground, or more usually "the Waca" is the home of cricket in WA. Officially, the Western Australian Cricket Association. These days, major games such as Ashes Tests are played at Optus Stadium, but Sheffield Sheild games are still played at the WACA, as are women's games. Test matches began here in 1970; who could forget local boys Dennis Lillee and Rodney Marsh combining to take yet another wicket?

I was staying nearby and called in to have a quick look. The people there were very friendly and allowed me in to take a few pictures.
There was no game on of course, just a training session and the ground staff were very kind and patient as wombled about taking a few snaps of a ground I've seen so often before on TV from afar.

Not many people know that the WACA has a bar and a cafe. Lobbed in this afternoon before the footy for a quick beer but decided to linger for nachos and a hotdog. Very good, very good value for money. Great music too. If your on your way to the footy, this is great pit stop.

We took the tour of the WACA whilst holidaying in Perth.

The tour guide was ex test umpire Rick Evans who really knew a lot about the history of the ground.

On the tour you get to see all the things that you would expect and quite a few that came as a surprise to us.

We were even taken onto the haloed turf and got to briefly talk to the groundsman Matt Page who prepares the centre wicket strip.

All in all a must for any cricket fan visiting Perth.

I've been here a few times over the years and not much has changed. It's pretty packed and the place is in need of some good renovations.

A few things for first timers, You can get hot/cold food and drink here which is pretty basic but good for the time you'll be here. Do take a hat, sunnies and some sunscreen even if you're seated in a shady area. And always take extra care of your bags if you bring any as the seats are very very crowded.

Apart from that it's still a nice place but as many things here i think it will be better in the future with a few renovations.

The history of this sporting ground is interesting. Not as interesting as the MCG but still good. Murals were very good.

Appreciate there is a new ground which they are all very proud of but I just had to visit the WACA one more time ,tour available, Will never forget this icon of test cricket with late arrival of the Fremantle doctor each day ,the very lively pitch with Lillee and Thompson putting the fear of God into the opposition. Suggest a great visit to make when in Perth for all cricket lovers
