The game was great but equally was the parade the day before and soaking up the atmosphere in Federation Square and the walk to the MCG. Even if you don't have a ticket it's worth going to Melbouren for the weekend.

This was the worst value breakfast it has been my displeasure to attend. Food was very poor quality and small in quantity. The entertainment was third rate or lower. Worst event I have ever attended.

It's everything reviewers have said, the biggest day of the year, huge crowds giving an atmosphere like no other event in Australia. If you are a genuine sports fan, it's worth every $ you will spend by travel deals or going to one of the...More

This would have to be THE greatest sporting event in Australia. The Feeling of either Pandemonium or despair after the Final siren has been enriched into the human body to a sense of Goosebumps for a win or tears of sadness for a loss. This...More

This was on my bucket list and although my side didn't win it was a fabulous spectacle. Event management could do with some fine tuning, People - People - People so many. Given that this is expected I was disappointed with the amenities, long lines...More

Hard to get tickets unless you are member of club or afl. Worth doing once in your life. Tickets can bought in travel deals but sell out early in year. The week before (prelim) is worth going to as well as its a lot cheaper....More
