Manuka Oval

Manuka Oval is known throughout the nation as Australia’s premier sporting venue. With a seating capacity of 13,550, the venue remains the premier site for cricket and AFL events in Canberra. The Manuka Oval retains much of its original tree plantings from the 1920s, allowing visitors to take in the venue and all that it has to offer, and to build a sense of belonging within its natural surroundings. From the distance, St Christopher's Cathedral Cathedral Tower and Red Hill are the only visible features outside the grounds. On site, the original curator's cottage and Lord's Taverners garden add a certain charm to the environment. Manuka Oval is a very popular venue for local and national cricket, as well as the PM's XI. The venue is only 10 minutes from parliament house and the airport, with plenty of parking space for visitors. With stunning views across the lawns of Manuka Oval and the surrounding Parliamentary Triangle, Manuka Oval is the perfect place for you and your group to meet. With multiple premium meeting room venues, you can choose the right space for your next meeting, function or event. With two iconic unique event centres, The Bradman Pavilion and the Manuka Media Centre, Manuka Oval is sure to have the right function room to suit your needs. From the Bradman Room, the largest of our function rooms, to the beautiful Roof Top Terrace and bar of The Media Centre.
