Sydney Cricket Ground
ABOUT THE SCG
Steeped in sporting history, the SCG has been providing a wealth of entertainment for over 150 years. Almost every famous Australian cricketer has competed within the historic grounds, which is considered among the country’s architectural treasures. Located within the eastern suburbs of Sydney and adjacent to the central business district, the SCG sits in the cultural heart of Sydney.
The SCG was established on the former 1852 Garrison Ground behind Victoria Barracks, Paddington, by the NSW Cricket Association. Today, the SCG is highly revered as one of the premier cricket venues in the world, hosting the annual New Year Test, One-Day Internationals and is the home ground of the NSW Blues and the Sydney Sixers.
The SCG will host the ICC Women's T20 World Cup semi-finals as a blockbuster double header, before six matches and a semi-final will take place on the hallowed turf for the men's event. Tickets to all matches are available now!
Sydney is Australia’s global city; set around a spectacular harbour and edged with stunning surf beaches. From the city’s iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge, to its exciting dining scene and a non-stop calendar of blockbuster events, Sydney shines all year round.
You can explore Sydney Harbour by walking to the top of the bridge, camping out on an island or heading out on the water by sail, kayak and jet boat, or by taking in the view from the deck of a Sydney ferry. Visit Sydney’s national parks, picnic in a harbourside park, or hit the waves for a surf lesson at world-famous Bondi or Manly beaches.
Sydney has a rich cultural life with exciting theatres, galleries and museums, and a packed events calendar including Vivid Sydney, the world’s largest festival of light, music and ideas which lights up the city each winter. Sports fans flock to the city for events including the Sydney International Tennis tournament, the Sydney Rugby 7s and the NSW Pro Surf Series.
Fashionistas will love Sydney’s cosmopolitan shopping precincts which showcase the very best of international and local design. Food lovers will be thrilled by Sydney’s diverse food and wine, with a huge variety of fine dining restaurants, quirky cafés, festivals and vibrant ‘eat streets’.
Sydney is also the gateway to regional New South Wales which offers even more great adventures and events – no wonder the state is Australia’s most popular destination.
Walk in the majestic Blue Mountains, experience the peace and remoteness of the Outback, taste fresh seafood on a South Coast road trip or hike to the highest point in Australia; Mount Kosciusko in the breathtaking Snowy Mountains. Catch a wave at a North Coast surf beach, explore the New England hinterland or follow the mighty Murray River through the Riverina.
From the spectacular coastline to World Heritage-listed wilderness areas, and the historic towns in regional NSW, there really is something for everyone in New South Wales.
