    Adelaide Oval
    Stop: 90 minutes - Admission included
    The redeveloped Adelaide Oval offers a unique blend of new and old, carefully integrating the latest in stadium design with famous features such as the heritage scoreboard, century-old Moreton Bay Fig trees, the grassed northern mound and more. These elements form an embedded museum, with integrated points of interest and historical features bringing the whole stadium to life. Access restricted areas and experience the thunderous roar of the crowd as you take to the ground through the interactive player’s race. See where some of the world’s greatest bands have entertained sold-out crowds and step inside living history as you explore inside the iconic scoreboard. Adelaide Oval Tours are led by expert volunteer guides who will share captivating tales of new and old Adelaide Oval. Each guide has their own unique stories and tour paths change seasonally - there’s always a new experience waiting to be had! The tours last approximately 90 minutes at a steady walking pace and may include the use of steps, stairs, ramps, escalators and lifts. Comfortable walking shoes and weather appropriate clothes are strongly recommended as the path includes external areas. While at the Oval, take time to wander through the famed Bradman Collection, on loan from the State Library of South Australia. The Collection follows Sir Donald Bradman’s progress from club cricketer to the international stage. It explores his major role in cricket administration and provides glimpses of the family man and all-round sportsman. The Bradman Collection is open Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm and is free for the public to view.

My wife and I went on the Adelaide Oval Stadium Tour - one of the most interesting aspects of our South Australian Tour. At the time the Don Bradman Museum was situated in the visitors area. The interactive corrugated water tank, golf ball and stump was brilliant. Didn't enjoy the fact the wife was better than me but can't hold that against the tour. The tour was run by Dennis, a volunteer with personal touch, Dennis took us through the Adelaide Oval and explained the history and his own personal 50 year relationship with the oval. There was history behind every aspect of the oval. The Fig trees, the old stand with grape vine, football & cricket warm up areas and score board all have wonderful stories attributed to them. The pitches behind the stadium which are dropped in during the cricket season gives you a complete picture of the running of the oval. If your unsure whether to do the tour or not - don't hesitate.

We are not sports fans but really enjoyed this comprehensive tour of the oval. The free museum inside the entrance was really well laid out with some fantastic old photos and a tribute area with lots of memorabilia on Don Bradman.
We booked and organised our tour online and the tour guide met us in the museum. After a short video we wandered with him down into the change rooms, up runways to the grass following in footballers footsteps, into media areas and behind the scenes places you would never normally be privy too. The history of the area was really interesting as was a inside your of the historical score board. Plenty of time for photos and to ask questions.
Definitely something to do if you enjoy history and especially if you follow football or cricket.
Excellent communication from the volunteer guide.

Adelaide Oval has the reputation for being Australia's most most beautiful stadium. Rather than being a coloseum like the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), it resembles an English county cricket ground. Its main functions are to host Test cricket and Australian Football League (AFL) matches. Following the recent upgrade, it is certainly more attractive for spectators. This year, the Oval will host an Ashes Test with England, amongst other games. By the way, the scoreboard is a well-known feature of the Oval. Entering the ground may take longer than previously due to Covid precautions.

The tour with our amazing guide Robert, took us behind the scenes checking out the AFL and cricket areas, plus a walk through the historic score board and a brief history. We sat in the commentators and press section, which gave us a good view of the ground.
Adelaide oval combines the old and the new beautifully and looks over the city and the hills.
Well worth the visit.

I would highly recommend this tour if you have an interest in sport and the history to the Adelaide Oval. The tour while having a few steps is very easy paced and covers the whole ground.

One stand out part of the tour was the "old" scoreboard with its various mechanical scoring arrangements.

Special thanks to Noel for his informative and very friendly approach - well done.

We did the oval tour as part of the Indian Pacific trip from Perth to Sydney. It was a great tour that ended with a breakfast at the oval. The tour of the Bradman exhibition was excellent with lots of anecdotes from our Guide. Then we worked our way to the old score board and then inside it to see how it works during a match. Was really interesting. Then into the team locker rooms and we then did the walk out onto the oval (with the crowd roaring!). Was a great experience.

Really enjoyed tour. Had a very good tour guide who was very informative. Loved the old score board and how it works. It was very interesting to see the change rooms and behind scene areas. Also the hallways with their honour boards and photos etc. Donald Bradman museum was also worth seeing. Would highly recommend tour

Enjoyed going in the scoreboard.
The Badman Museum was well presented as was the room before you enter the museum.
Disappointed we could not go in one of the football team rooms or the media rooms.
Perhaps guides needed to know more of the history about the players both cricket and football

Great tour, guide modified tour to suit our group. Old score board and cricket’s players race are a real highlight. Sports lovers should not miss out on touring this iconic stadium.
