Melbourne Hotels near the MCG for AFL and Cricket

Hilton on the Park overlooking the MCG

The MCG and Etihad Stadium are the major AFL stadiums in Melbourne and the home grounds for most Melbourne based teams. Traffic can be horrendous when AFL or cricket games are on so its best to walk to the game if you can.

It's a short walk to the MCG from any of the hotels around Jolimont, East Melbourne or the south east corner of the CBD near the corner of Flinders and Spring St or Flinders and Exhibition St, see the map of hotels near the MCG here. The Hilton on the Park is pictured on the far right of the MCG.

You can double check when your game is on with the calendar of events at the MCG.
