There is something very special about touring New Zealand. Close to home and with many lifestyle similarities, from the moment you arrive, however, you know you're in a vastly different country.

A few square km larger than Victoria, the varying wonders in such a small area are what makes an Australian Cricket Tour To New Zealand one of the more adventure-packed, unique tours.

You are never far from amazing wineries, gushing geysers, stunning golf courses, freshwater fishing, America’s Cup yacht sailing, glacier walks, downhill skiing, epic railway journeys, thermal fields, thermal springs, ancient forests, sheep, art-deco towns, jetboating, thriving Maori culture, and glorious beaches when not lounging in some of the finest test cricket ovals ever played.

This why we are not hosting a tour, and providing 'MATCH TICKETS ONLY!'

Book Flights to Wellington & Christchurch:

 

Book your own flights, hotel, cars, buses, trains, campers, and camp chairs, and we'll get the match tickets, so above all else we enjoy the game together.

Match Tickets Wellington:

  • Embankment is A$120 for 5-Days
  • Grandstand is A$150 for 5-Days

Match Tickets Christchurch:

  • If you book Days 1 - 3 with hospitality, Days 4 & 5 (Mon & Tues) should be available to buy separately at A$40 per day

Basin Reserve Wellington | New Zealand | Australian Cricket Tours

Whether you stay in a flash hotel, quaint guesthouse, stylish apartment, or B&B, everywhere in New Zealand is excellent for the price you wish to pay, even those that are 'free'!

Many have friends and family 'across the ditch' to stay with and being so close to most of your homes you can pop-over for a long weekend, enjoy test cricket in a village cricket society and go home.

  • You don't need escorted tours, which may include transfers, day trips, dinners, or excursions, which is why, again, we are not hosting a tour

Grab your mates, colleagues, family, or those met on Australian Cricket Tours past, and flit over to the 3rd best nation (in our view) to follow the game.

#EasyPeasy

No one needs their hand-held in New Zealand. We admit that the investment in 'creating and hosting' tours in 2005, 2010, and 2016 was almost pointless.

We say 'almost' for if it not hosting a tour in 2016, many more would have missed out with both tests SOLD OUT on days 1 & 2. Buying tickets at the gate on all Australian Cricket Tours to New Zealand since 2000 was not possible in 2016. Demand outweighed supply.

Thankfully we had our tickets and near 100 of us enjoyed a cracking test series lazing on the grass of two of the world's great test cricket ovals.

The Crowd Lined Up Outside Basin Reserve Wellington | New Zealand | Australian Cricket Tours

Since our first Australian Cricket Tour to New Zealand 2000 we've asked why Australia and New Zealand don't face off annually. We'd love to tour New Zealand more often. You just can't go wrong touring New Zealand.

The Australian Cricket Tour to New Zealand 2024 will be played at the men's game’s only Test Cricket ONLY ground, Basin Reserve, Wellington, where Australia has played every tour since 1946, except 1977.

In 2016 crowds gathered (above) to get in early and we expect no less in 2024, and with more Aussies. This is our only Australian Test Cricket Tour in 2024 so get packing!

We love visiting both new venues, and favourite venues. Though we would love a new venue, the second test will be played at stunning Hagley Oval, Christchurch which is in our Top 10 favourite Test Cricket Grounds

If any good came from the earthquake in 2011, it was Hagley Oval. Jade Stadium was condemned allowing development of the cricket oval in Hagley Park.

One pavilion framed by lush embankment, allows 18000 people to set up camp chairs, lay blankets, and open chilly-bins (eskies) for a grand day out! It’s an outstanding oval with great people and facilities in a ‘village cricket’ atmos, yet with stadium passion.

Remember the throng spurring Brendon McCullum (after being caught off two no-balls!) to a world-record fastest 100 at Hagley in 2016? #Epic

In Wellington and Christchurch, you are so far removed from the staleness of stadium cricket you'll wish to play these ovals every tour.

When we next tour, we'd love equally to play  McLean Park, Napier, Bay Oval, Mt Maunganui, University Oval, Dunedin, and Seddon Park, Hamilton. Grounds don't have to hold 10’s of thousands to make a remarkable cricket experience.

Speaking of Bay Oval, how did England tour NZ twice in 4 years (both times playing at Bay Oval), yet Australia only once since 2016? New Zealand is not around the corner from Lord's.

That is something we can't change as we prepare for our next Australian Cricket Tour to New Zealand, when it will be 31 years since the Kiwis last beat Australia at home by 5 wickets in Auckland in 1993. Before that was 1990.

In 58 Tests from 1974 - 2020 Blackcaps have only won 8 against Australia’s 34 in the fight for the poorly named Trans-Tasman Trophy.

For the love of a good game, we hope the Blackcaps (the only other World Test Champion), stand up in 2024!
