Melbourne Cricket Ground, the Australian Gallery of Sport and the Olympic Museum

The MCG is known and loved by cricket fans around the world. It can lay claim to being the home of cricket in Australia. It was here, as early as 1862, that the first international cricket match was held and in 1877 the first England-Australia test was also held on this ground. The main attraction is the Australian Gallery of Sport and Olympic Museum which documents Australian Sporting history and its cultural significance through a vast quantity of interesting sporting memorabilia, including 1956 Olympic cauldron and wild olive branches awarded in the 1986 Athens Olympics. Audio tours are also available.
