  • Definatly worth the price of entry. (Which is pretty good when you combine it with the MCG tour. Such a massive amount to see and fun interactive sport activities for both adults and kids!
  • The interactive part is fun. Good for the whole family
  • Couldn't get in as there was cricket on, would've had to purchase cricket tickets in addition just to get into the building. This wasn't clearly enough advertised, so a waste of time.
  • The iconic MCG stadium easily accessible
  • Great museum for Australian sports. Must see!!

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
