Established in 1871, Adelaide Oval has long been one of Australia’s most recognisable and prestigious venues. Its prominent location as the centrepiece of the Adelaide CBD’s revitalised riverbank precinct, along with stunning panoramic views over the city, the Oval’s hallowed turf, St Peter’s Cathedral and beyond, makes Adelaide Oval an outstanding destination.
A $535 million redevelopment, completed in 2014, transformed Adelaide Oval into an exemplary modern stadium while retaining its considerable history and charm. The Oval plays host to cricket, Australian Rules football, concerts, and major events. In 2020, the Oval Hotel, opened its doors, Australia’s first accommodation inside a stadium.
Along with sports fans, the Oval has enormous appeal to visitors with an interest in history, culture, food and wine. Visitors can experience the award winning RoofClimb adventure taking in the city skyline from the rooftop, discover the history behind the icon on the Oval tour or explore the famed Bradman Collection, home of Sir Donald Bradman’s private and personal collection.
