Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne: 8 reviews and 6 photos


Favorite thing: <FONT COLOR=RED<For anyone wishing to travel to Melbourne from overseas and is wondering what it has to offer I can assure you there is plenty to see and do.Melbourne has many attractions such as wonder ful parks and gardens to world renouned sporting complexes such as the M.C.G(melbourne cricket ground) there is also a large mixture of bars ,clubs restaurants and shopping area's such as the Queen Victoria market to the trendy strips such as chapel street .the Melbourne casino is said to be one of the lagest single casino's in the world.opening in 1998 at a cost of 1 billion dollars to set up.Melbourne also has some really cool places that for some reason are not easy to find it is almost like there setting a challenge for you to find them and if you can they will show you what you had been missing. so hope fully i can give you some basic info on this page about my city.</FONT>

Fondest memory: My fondest memory of melbourne would probably be watching our National sport of australian rules football at the M.C.G at finals time in september in front of crowds of 90,000 plus. you really feel Australian because the game is totally Australian.Apart from that it would be the summer months when melbourne really comes to life with festivals, sporting events and the the almost national past time of a barbie with your mates barbie meaning B.B.Q.This photo is at the M.C.G when cameroon played chilli in the semi final of the soccer in the Olympic games .Soccer was the only sport were some games were played outside sydney.considering no aussie team was playing and soccer is not over popular in australia a crowd of 65,000 was a great turn out on such a terrible rainy night
