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.

Visited the 'G' for the first time so had the tour of the stadium, the tour guide was brilliant and very knowledgeable. For the price the museum is well worth visiting as well.

A wonderful free facility that allows you to capture a view of Melbourne with a limited a commentary of the main areas. On top of this it us a hop on hop off service. Use the number 35 tram called the city circle.

You can walk there from flinders st station or Richmond station. Guided tour if interested. Best at a sporting match at its full capacity as the crowds can give you best effect of the complex.

The tour of the MCG was excellent made even more so by the guide who gave everybody his full attention. The access to the dressing rooms, media room, the edge of the ground were special as was the feeling of so much history. Great experience

If you can make it to a Sunday dry day game during the AFL footy season you might get the chance to have a kick on the arena, subject to weather conditions. You then get an idea of the distance the players kick the ball....More
