    Do make sure to put on something warm; it gets quite chilly later in the night. Grab some pies or chips along with a warm drink to avoid getting too cold.

    My favorite stadium in Melbourne. Went to two cricket matches on my trip. Second level has some nice indoor bars to visit behind the seats when you want a break and a drink.

    A classic sports venue, hosting a variety of events. The sort of place where attending a football or cricket match is a pilgrimage, not just viewing a game.
