"MCG - Melbourne Cricket Ground..." Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) Tip by Janellabel


MCG - Melbourne Cricket Ground also know to the locals as the 'G'. It was the home of the 1956 Olympics and recently held the soccer (football) for the 2000 Games.

It is here in summer we have big international cricket tests played and one day matches. One of the best to go to is the Boxing Day match after christmas which is one of the biggets games of the season. In winter we have Australian Rules football played here which is a unique game to Australia.
There is a tour of this ground which is very interesting and also here is the Australian Sporting Museum.
