Melbourne - Cricket Venue | ICC Cricket World Cup 2015

Melbourne is located around Port Phillip Bay, with the city centre positioned along the Yarra River offering a maze of hidden laneways, opulent bars, exclusive restaurants and off-the-beaten-track boutiques.

As the capital of the state of Victoria, Melbourne is a vibrant hub of style, sport, culture and dining. All of which come together for the city’s world famous events including the Australian Grand Prix, the Australian Open Tennis or the Melbourne Cup.

Why not combine a city visit with one of the famous drives along the Great Ocean Road to the Twelve Apostles and surf beaches or along the Great Alpine Road through the Australian Alps.


One of the most iconic stadiums in the world, the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) holds a special place in Australian sport. 

This multi-purpose stadium has hosted the 1956 Olympic Games and 2006 Commonwealth Games as well as international cricket, rugby, rugby league, football and AFL matches. The stadium is home to the state cricket team, the Victorian Bushrangers and Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League.

The MCG was built in 1853 and hosted the first ever Test Match in 1877 between Australia and England, making it the birthplace of Test cricket. It was also the venue for the first-ever One Day International in 1970-71 between Australia and England and hosted the ICC Cricket World Cup final in 1992 between England and Pakistan.

The grounds also house the Australian National Sports Museum, offering the nation’s finest collection of sporting history.

Conveniently, the MCG sits in close proximity to Melbourne’s central city, requiring just a short train or tram ride to reach the arena.
