This huge stadium, within walking distance of the city, hosts two of Melbourne's biggest sporting events each year: the Boxing Day Test Match, when Australia's cricketers take on a team from around the world, and the Australian Football League (AFL) Grand Final. There are often other sporting events on, especially during the football season (from April to September), but outside of match days there are behind-the-scenes tours and the National Sports Museum to explore.
