A great experience at Adelaide Oval
Grahame_O, Mar 2023
An amazing experience from start to finish. Our guide was great, and we felt very safe. As seniors, we hoped we could keep up, but had no problems. Luckily it was a cool day, as it might have been a bit harder if it was hot. We thought this was a highlight of our trip to Adelaide. We would thoroughly recommend this climb to anyone. Perhaps avoid if you absolutely hate heights or get vertigo.
Amazing experience

Great climb up the Adelaide Oval
Sharon_P, Nov 2022
We had a great time climbing up the roof of the Oval. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgable and she told us lots of facts about the ground and Adelaide in general. It was a bit scary when you got to the top and you could see through where you were walking right down to the ground !! Couldn’t bring myself to lean out backwards over the edge though !! Really enjoyable would thoroughly recommend it 😎
Adelaide Oval Climb - a Great Experience!

Great experience, even with the rain and wind! Beautiful views and a fun climb up and over and back again. We would definitely do this again!
Overcome the Nerves and Do the River Bank Stand Lean Out

The Adelaide Roof Climb was an Awesome Activity to do with my two girlfriends on our holiday. The tour guides were brilliant and made sure we were very safe. The way they contacted the tour was very informative and enjoyable to listen too. Will definitely be telling people it's something to put on the bucket list.
Fantastic Experience!
Geraldine_L, May 2022
The views from the rooftop were amazing and it was a great experience. It was a little scary and took a bit of getting used to as you're not completely fenced in like you are on the Harbour Bridge Climb in Sydney. There is only a railing on one side of you. Took a bit of adjusting to. Still loved it though. The tour guide was great and very informative. For me, I would have liked to go a little slower, as I found it was hard trying to move at normal walking speed whilst trying to adjust to the height (however, I never voiced this on the tour so my own fault). Overall it was a great experience.
Twilight dream
Rosalyn_J, May 2022

Family fun
Andrew_H, Jan 2022
Great to see the improvements to the oval since going to a one dayer in the 80s. My 14 yo daughter loved the leaning out experience. It was a great experience and an affordable family experience Andrew
Awesome experience, don’t miss this!
Jean_Smith, May 2021
This was an awesome experience. I couldn’t recommend it more highly. I’d give it 6 stars if I could. Alistair (our guide) was informative, funny, caring and looked after us all the way through. If you only have time for one tour in Adelaide, pick this one! Many thanks
Unique and exciting experience.
Jenny_N, Apr 2021
This was a great experience and an unusual activity to do. Great care was taken in ensuring each participants safety and the instructions given were very clear. The history of the ground was very interesting. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend it.
Memorable moments
Kathrine_P, Apr 2021
Our guide was extremely informative with his knowledge of surrounding areas in Adelaide. He was calm for those who needed a little extra support and brought some humor into the tour to ease some nerves. The whole process was very professional and you knew safety was well taken care of. a most memorable moment was the lean back and Sitting by the lean back area and the view you get of the oval and surrounds. A massive thank you, this was such a great experience

Anne P, Jan 2018
My 19 year old son did this tour and said it was the best experience he has had. The walk was professionally organised and ran smoothly. We got to watch him from below in the Stadium and were allowed to move around freely to watch him. The photo USB was great value and had great shots of his experience.
