Your experience

From the street art of the Laneways to the gardens and galleries of Kilda Road, once you make your own way to Melbourne, there’s so much to see.

Australia haven’t lost a Boxing Day test in Melbourne since 2010, when they were beaten by England.

Joe Root’s team will need your voice to ring out from your specially selected Bronze category ticket seat, louder than 100,000 others.

And the celebrations will continue after the match has been settled, with the chance to enjoy Melbourne’s vibrant New Year’s Eve revels.

Your booking includes:

  • 7 nights' accommodation and breakfast
  • Official Bronze category ticket* for all 5 days of the 4th Test Match
  • New Year’s Eve in Melbourne
  • Support and assistance from our dedicated and friendly representatives
  • Service charges and taxes

  • Match Day Transfers

Optional Extras (at a fee):

  • Official Ashes Functions

Your itinerary

Day 1, Monday 25th December 2017
However you choose to get to Melbourne, you’ll arrive right in the middle of Christmas celebrations.

Check in to your chosen hotel and chill out or soak up some of the atmosphere in a city where Santa sometimes arrives by surfboard.

Anticipation of festivities will be matched by mounting excitement for a sporting occasion as famous as the Monaco Grand Prix and Champions League Final.

Days 2-6, Tuesday 26th – Saturday 30th December 2017 (Test Match)
Head to Yarra Park, home of the world’s largest cricket ground, to take part in the world’s most iconic match.

You’ll enjoy stunning views of the action and marvel at the acoustics of 100,000 fans filling this Australian landmark.

Your specially selected Bronze category seat* puts you right in the action, in level one of the Olympic Stand, between gully and point.

It could be the test that decides the series – it’ll definitely be one you tell people about when you get home.

*All Day 5 tickets are General Admission.

Day 7, Sunday 31st December 2017
No need to check out of your hotel on New Year’s Eve – stay and enjoy the experience of welcoming in 2018 in Melbourne.

Day 8, Monday 1st January 2018
Once you’ve rested an extra night in the city and taken in as much as you can, travel however you choose to your next destination.

We hope it’ll be Sydney for the fifth and final test – see you there!

The Venue


The largest sports stadium in the southern hemisphere almost defies description.

Regardless of the six-figure capacity, multi-sport use and the record-breaking statistics set on its playing surface – it’s singular appeal is simple.

The MCG is a venue that transcends sport and the annual Boxing Day test there is a holy grail for both cricket fanatics and keen travellers alike.

Seat location

There are no poor views in the MCG but your Bronze category seat in level one of the Olympic Stand will provide a particularly good one from gully to point.
