Fodor's Review

A tour of this complex is essential for an understanding of Melbourne's sporting obsession. You can get the stories behind it all at the new National Sports Museum. The site is a pleasant 10-minute walk from the city center or a tram ride (Nos. 48 and 75) to Jolimont Station.

Great sporting experience

One of the world's great stadiums. Few other sporting venues have such a history and atmosphere. Go and see the cricket in the summer or the Aussie rules football in the winter (an unmissable experience). Located close to the city centre, it's easy to get to and the tour is great. Will be an amazing arena once the re-development is completed. Highly recommended for either the tour or to experience an event.
