A Shrine to Sports
Best known simply as "The G," this Melbourne institution is not only the largest stadium in Australia but also in the Southern Hemisphere. The Melbourne Cricket Ground opened in 1853 as the site of the One Day International, a now-famous cricket tournament, and the heritage-listed stadium has since served as a venue for the 1956 Summer Olympics, 2015 Commonwealth Games, and 1992 and 2015 Cricket World Cups. With room for crowds of around 100,000, the Melbourne Cricket Ground offers an electric atmosphere during games. Come support the Melbourne Cricket Club, watch an international tournament, or check out an Australian rules football match at this can't-miss landmark.
