Adelaide Oval from afar

Adelaide Oval

For nearly 150 years, Adelaide Oval has been regarded as one of the most picturesque sporting grounds in the world. It is a South Australian icon, and one of the most advanced, state-of-the-art outdoor venues in Australia.

Only a few minutes' walk north of Rundle Mall, Adelaide Oval is the home of cricket and AFL for all South Australians. Tens of thousands of supporters take over the city on game days, with many stopping by Rundle Mall before and after the games to grab last-minute merchandise or something to eat and drink.

If sports aren't your thing, the Oval also hosts some of the world's biggest names performing to sold out crowds. Ed Sheeran, the Rolling Stones and Adele are just a few who have taken to the stage.

Even if there is no major event on, there is still so much to do at Adelaide Oval. Soak up spectacular views of the city and surrounds while seeing the stadium from an entirely different perspective with RoofClimb, go behind closed doors and learn the stories, hidden secrets and celebrated moments with a behind-the-scenes tour or eat and drink your way through South Australia's finest food and wine at Hill of Grace restaurant. Enjoyed your time at Adelaide Oval? You can make a night of it by booking a room in the luxury Oval Hotel, overlooking the grounds and providing five-star service.
