Sydney Cricket Ground

Top choice spectator sport in Paddington & Centennial Park

During the cricket season (October to March), the stately SCG is the venue for sparsely attended interstate cricket matches (featuring the NSW Blues), family-friendly Big Bash extravaganzas and sell-out international five-day Test, one-day and 20/20 limited-over cricket matches. As the cricket season ends, the Australian Rules (AFL) season starts, and the stadium becomes a blur of red-and-white-clad Sydney Swans ( fans.

The atmosphere for international cricket and Swans games is excellent. Book via Ticketek. Tours of the ground are also available.
