Sydney Cricket Ground
The SGC has two historic stands: the members’ stands and the ladies’ stands. Beneath the ladies’ stands, you’ll find the SCG Museum, which focuses on the sporting and social activities that have occurred at the SCG over time. Visit just to watch a cricket match, or book a guided tour to see sites like the changing rooms and the television commentary box and to learn about the site’s history.
Things to Know Before you Go
You must adhere to a dress code if you attend a match: Visitors may not wear shirts without a collar, ripped or soiled clothing, revealing tops (including halter or strapless tops), athletic shorts (or similar items), track pants, or casual sandals or slippers (or similar footwear). Visitors entering the Member Pavilion adhere to an even stricter dress code. See the stadium’s official rules for details.
The SCG is wheelchair accessible, but those wishing to go on a tour should contact their operator or the SCG to make arrangements in advance.
Alcohol, glass bottles, and aluminum cans are not allowed.
How to Get There
The cricket grounds are located in Moore Park, in the heart of Sydney, just east of the CBD. To reach the site via public transportation, you can take a variety of train, bus, or light rail to Central Station, which is about a 20-minute walk away. Public parking is also available in the area, and there are taxi stands on Errol Flynn Boulevard, a few minutes’ walk to the south.
When to Get There
Tours of the SCG are available Monday through Friday in both the morning and afternoon and on Saturday mornings. The museum is closed on all public holidays and on major match days, so plan accordingly. Check match schedules for details.

The park's Entertainment Quarter, just south of the SGC, is home to lots of restaurants, bars, and shops as well as family-friendly entertainment options.
