Imposing and white-roofed, the stadium towers above the leafy suburb of North Adelaide.

  • A brilliant tour with good access and very good commentary. The guide demonstrated a passion for his subject and showed us things that normally you would not see, like the inside of the historic scoreboard. Well worth booking a visit when you are in Adelaide.
  • Great layout. Wide aisles. We took part in the Stadium tour. Our guide, Katrina, was delightful. Her knowledge of the history of the ground was extensive. Due to a Sheffield Shield game being played, the tour was slightly modified, but we didn't miss mych. A highlight was being able to see the heritage listed scoreboard in operation. Fabulous to see it has been preserved and still used.
