But on Boxing Day, the city’s eyes will be fixed on one place only – cricket’s most famous spectacle – the traditional test at the MCG.

Your booking includes:

  • 6 nights' accommodation and breakfast
  • Official Bronze category ticket* for all 5 days of the 4th Test Match
  • Support and assistance from our dedicated and friendly representatives
  • Service charges and taxes

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
Check out and move on to your next destination for the New Year Celebrations

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.
