Take a look at the redeveloped Adelaide Oval. Experience its 140-year history as one of Australia’s premier sporting and entertainment venues and its transformation into an internationally renowned sports venue. Adelaide Oval stands as the centrepiece of Adelaide city. The Oval hosts international cricket and, for the first time in 2014, played host to all of South Australia’s AFL matches. In its position as part of the Riverbank Precinct, Adelaide Oval is part of Adelaide’s transformation and testament to Lonely Planet’s announcement of Adelaide as the ‘perfect host city’.
Go behind closed doors and hear captivating stories, find out hidden secrets and relive celebrated moments. Witness the unique integration of the Oval’s iconic heritage blended seamlessly with world-class facilities. Imagine the roar of the crowd as you take to the ground through the players’ entry, stand inside the historic scoreboard and enjoy a birds-eye view of the impressive Adelaide city landscape.
The Bradman Collection, on loan by the State Library of South Australia, is on display at Adelaide Oval in a state of the art, purpose -built museum, located in the Riverbank Stand (access through the south gate off War Memorial Drive). The Bradman Collection is a world class exhibition dedicated to an Australian legend and international hero who made Adelaide his home. Watch footage of Bradman in the theatrette, test your own skills with the interactive museum, and browse through personal items including cricket bats, balls, trophies, items of clothing and more.
