The G still holds its place as the best. Sure it’s starting to age a little in places but there’s still nothing that’s beat a game of footy at the G. Especially when the crowd gets above 70k, that atmosphere can’t be replicated.

A fantastic opportunity for those who love sports. The tour is well worth the money. The tour guide really knew his stuff, had stories and facts throughout the place. Also you get to stand on the pitch as well as see the dressing rooms.

An absolute must do in Melbourne if you get the chance to see either AFL or cricket. A magnificent stadium with great history, just avoid having to buy food and drinks as it's severely overpriced
