Adelaide Oval

Lonely Planet review

Hailed as the world’s prettiest cricket ground, the Adelaide Oval hosts interstate and international cricket matches in summer, plus South Australian National Football League (SANFL) football games in winter. A wholesale redevelopment is underway (www.adelaideovalredevelopment.com.au), which will boost seating capacity to 50,000 and bring national Australian Football League (AFL) games here. A bronze statue of ‘the Don’ (Sir Donald Bradman) cracks a cover drive out the front. When there are no games happening you can take a two-hour tour , departing from the northern gates on Pennington Tce. Call or check the website for tour details. Note that the Bradman Collection Museum is on ice until the redevelopment is complete.
