Adelaide Oval

Adelaide Oval is widely regarded as the most picturesque sporting grounds in the world with the northern aspect featuring St Peters Cathedral rising behind the famous heritage scoreboard.

Cricket was first played at the Adelaide Oval in 1873 and the first Test match was played in December 1884, but it was the infamous Bodyline Test in January 1933 that saw a record 174,452 spectators at Adelaide Oval to watch cricket. The more recent 2006-07 Ashes Test was also a major event with 136,761 spectators enjoying the five days of play.

The Ovals distinctive Moreton Bay figs were planted in the 1890s and remain a historical backdrop to the northern end of play, as does the famous Edwardian scoreboard.

As a central, city location, the Adelaide Oval will be comprehensively serviced by all modes of public transport.
