Our first Australian Cricket Tour to Sri Lanka 1999 was the definition of 'frugal'. Arriving at 11pm, we walked 15 mins from Colombo's Bandaranaike International Airport to the public bus station from where, after waiting for the bus to slowly fill and for about A$0.30c, we travelled an hour to Fort Railway Station, Colombo arriving at 2am. A 10mins walk took us to the dynamic Sri Lanka Ex-Serviceman's Institute where a security officer eventually awoke, let us in, and directed us to an empty 20-bed dorm.

For the first time in 4 years of travel, we were given a bed without payment; the guard not authorised to take cash or he just wanted to get back to sleep.

The Institute was A$4 per night; perfect for budget-minded cricket souls. Over the years, we rotated between the Institute and Colombo YMCA next door, which was cleaner, had private rooms, and a higher price. It came down to availability or whose security guard would open the door sooner. Either way there was, and perhaps still is, no cheaper place in Colombo.

We weren't the only ones keen to save a few rupees because going to sleep as the only people in the room, we woke to find the dormitory full. Thinking of this, a 20-bed dorm would have been perfect for our 'formative tours' in the early 2000s. At the time one doubted evolution, but reflecting on this more than 20 years later, I can't imagine staying at either. I guess one softens with age.

Still, we have not forgotten that people travel on different budgets. We now stay at hotels well above the quality and price of the YMCA & Ex-Serviceman's Institute, but we respect that you may want to save money in Sri Lanka by not staying in our swish hotels when all you want is just to go to the cricket, with others.

If you prefer to maintain your budget by luxuriating at the YMCA or upkeep your loyalty programme by camping at a different hotel and still join us at the cricket, then our Match Ticket & Dinner Tour is for you. This affordable option includes:

  • Dinner Party The Night Before Each Test
    • Alcohol Included
  • Match Tickets To All 5-Days Of The Test
  • Commemorative Apparel
  • Our Sri Lanka Tour / Travel Information
  • Dinner Party On Night 5 Of Each Test
    • Alcohol Included

Match tickets will be on the western-side of the ground. Though we get a dose of early morning sun, shade quickly arrives for the remainder of the day. There is limited seating options in Galle but we have already secured our 'usual' covered seats.

If you are joining us in Galle with this package, we recommend you book accommodation in Hikkaduwa. There are plenty of great value 2 & 3 Star hotels, boutique hotels, and guesthouses neighbouring our resort.

    Many of the awesome people you will meet in Sri Lanka have toured with us since 1995 and keep joining our Australian Cricket Tours because they know what a great time they will have. Not only with 'regulars' for which a cricket tour is an annual 'catch up' but the dozens of newbies that join us each tour.

    All you need to do is turn up for the dinner party, usually at our hotel, grab your match tickets, have a cracking good night, and join us at the game the next day. Easy!

    Importantly, if you're not booking any Australian Cricket Tour To Sri Lanka 2022, please do not ask us to buy match tickets for you!
