Get yourself down to the 'G for some post-Christmas cricket

There's many things people do on Boxing Day – smash Christmas leftovers, nurse a mean hangover, bask in gifts, head to the beach, hit the sales or even just sleep. But the undisputed king of Boxing Day traditions is watching the cricket. The Commonwealth Bank Boxing Day Test is five days of fast-paced action at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. 

There are plenty of sessions across five days, in which you can soak up the sunshine and excitement only a live cricket match can provide. Adult tickets to the game start at around $10 and you can make a day out of it by bringing the family along, with family tickets going for about $65.
