- Guided Walking Tour of Adelaide Oval
WHAT TO EXPECT
Go behind closed doors where you’ll discover hidden secrets and relive celebrated moments at the Adelaide Oval. Witness the unique integration of the Oval’s iconic heritage blended seamlessly with world-class facilities.
Imagine running onto Adelaide Oval to the roar of a 50,000-strong crowd! You'll get to experience that feeling and the thunderous roar of the crowd as you take to the ground through the interactive player’s race. You'll also gain an insight into match-day preparations inside the players’ change-rooms.
Next, you'll climb the stairs to the 100-year-old heritage-listed scoreboard. Step inside this piece of living history and learn all about scorekeeping and the processes behind staying up to date with the match. Your guide will regale with you stories of epic matches and huge scores.
You'll also enjoy access to other restricted areas and the opportunity to see how the Adelaide Oval runs like a well-oiled machine. See where some of the world’s greatest bands have entertained sold-out crowds and take in views of the stadium from places you wouldn't ordinarily get to visit.
The tours are led by expert volunteer guides who have captivating tales of new and old. Each guide has their own unique stories to tell so no two tours are ever the same. The experience lasts approximately 90 minutes at a steady walking pace and may include the use of steps, stairs, ramps, escalators and lifts. Comfortable walking shoes and weather-appropriate clothes are strongly recommended. Stiletto shoes are not permitted in the heritage-listed Scoreboard.
