Tours of Adelaide Oval are closing temporarily while some essential building works are undertaken in the western grandstand as part of the $535 million precinct redevelopment. Due to the required safety restrictions, tours of Adelaide Oval will be closed from Monday, March 11 until late October. Tours will recommence in time for the 2013/14 summer of cricket.
Tours of Adelaide Oval are provided by SACA's expert team of tour volunteers and start from the Adelaide Oval Function Centre Reception located inside the Clarrie Grimmett gate (North gate) off Pennington Terrace. Although the tours are somewhat limited by the current redevelopment work, there is still plenty to see and learn.
Tours run Monday to Friday at 10am all year round, with the exception of public holidays, match days and when the Oval is being prepared for International events. During the South Australian cricket season (October to March) additional tours operate every Tuesday and Thursday commencing at 2pm.
Prices are $10 adult, $5 children/concession. SACA Members free on presentation of their members card.
In the event of extreme hot weather (when the temperature is forecast to be 36 degrees or higher) the tours of the Oval will be reduced to one hour duration. Should the forecast be 40 degrees or higher the tours will be cancelled. Please phone SACA on (08) 8205 4733 to confirm hot weather conditions.
Private group tours are a great excursion idea for your group or school. A minimum of 10 people is required with at least a month's notice. To book, phone (08) 8205 4733.
Note that at different times throughout the year, some areas of the Oval may be out of bounds for tours due to the redevelopment or event bookings.
