The Gabba

Brisbane, home to The Gabba and Allan Border Field, will be one of the eight host cities for the ICC T20 World Cup 2020.



The Gabba has been the home of cricket in Queensland since 1896 and is well known throughout the cricketing world for hosting all forms of international cricket, as well as Sheffield Shield matches.

It traditionally hosts the first Test match of the Australian summer and will provide a fun and lively atmosphere for fans attending the ICC T20 World Cup.

The Gabba is world renowned for its ‘true’, hard, fast and bouncy pitches - perfect for T20 cricket!

Brisbane will host four ICC Men's T20 World Cup matches at The Gabba, including hosts Australia on 31 October. Tickets are on sale now!


Australia’s New World City and Queensland’s capital is a burgeoning tourism destination, constantly evolving with new venues and experiences. Visitors will discover lively precincts with world-class restaurants, museums, galleries, vibrant outdoor venues, beautiful parklands, eclectic bars, boutiques and high-end shopping.   

Brisbane has an ever-expanding events scene, with exclusive shows, significant international exhibitions and major sporting events. Visitors can enjoy Brisbane’s enviable outdoor climate by exploring the city centre with a free Brisbane Greeters walking tour, join a bicycle tour or relaxing river cruise – or take to the skies with a hot air balloon experience.

Highlights include feeding wild dolphins at Tangalooma Island Resort or cuddling koalas and hand-feeding kangaroos at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. The second- and third-largest sand islands in the world – North Stradbroke and Moreton Islands – provide two of the best land-based whale-watching vantage points along the Australian coast during the winter months, while World Heritage-listed rainforests are within 90 minutes of the city.

To complement the city’s famous outdoor lifestyle and sub-tropical climate, Brisbane’s proximity to fresh produce brings food from the region’s paddocks to your plate. Chefs from around the world move to the city to take advantage of its diverse gastronomic scene. With an array of award-winning restaurants and bars, discover Brisbane’s culinary precincts including the Eagle Street Pier, James Street and South Bank’s River Quay.
