Brisbane Cricket Ground or Gabba (Brisbane)
Brisbane is the capital of the stunning subtropical state of Queensland and the gateway to the region's many attractions.
The Brisbane Cricket Ground, or Gabba, is an icon of Australian sport. The stadium is named after the suburb of Woolloongabba, in which it is located. The venue was gradually redeveloped from 1993 to 2005 from an oblong-shaped field surrounded by a greyhound racing track to a modern state-of-the-art stadium.
The hallowed turf hosts the Queensland Bulls Sheffield Shield team and the Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League during the summer and is home to the Brisbane Lions Australian Rules Football team during the winter.
The stadium is located two kilometres from Brisbane's CBD, and is well-serviced by public transport.
