Right from the point of entry from being bowled over by a Dennis Lillee figurine, up uptil the point you end the tour and exit the stadium, you are bound to be in awe.

    An excellent tour. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and made the tour so interesting. Don't miss the Sports Museum downstairs. After the tour we spent two hours down there and could have spent longer.
