We love touring the ever-beautiful Sri Lanka more than any other nation. Since our first Australian Cricket Tour To Sri Lanka 1999, we've favoured this tranquil land for being close to home, the ease of only flying into Colombo, cost of living, convenience of all test cricket grounds being only 2-5 hours drive from each other, and those being 3 of the nicest (with New Zealand) to watch cricket.

Let's not forget the stunning coastline & beaches, lush hills & tea plantations, the ever-dynamic Colombo, famed national parks, an unspoiled Northern Province, vibrant east coast, soothing Buddhist religion, health & well-being, culinary wizadry, unique golf courses, flash hotels, heritage homes, beach resorts, forest retreats, and wonderful people across a land smaller than Tasmania.

Sri Lanka is breathtaking no matter what the 'disturbance'.

Throughout the civil war, the Australian Cricket Team toured (except '96) Sri Lanka without hindrance or harry, and so have we. Visiting twice before the Australian Cricket Tour to Sri Lanka 2022, to prove everything was all good to visit amidst the social and political unrest, it was still impossible to convince everyone that there was no threat.

Those that didn't tour in 2022 missed out, and the 50 that did tour agree. None of the troubles plaguing global media affected tourists in Sri Lanka... except the prices; everything cost less than half of what it should, making an always cheap tour, cheaper. We couldn't spend enough; benefits of a collapsed economy that is back on the rise.

If you baulked in 2022 and wish you hadn't, we're back in our beloved idyll in February 2025 for two test matches.

In 2022 we had 17 nights at our beach resort as both tests were played in Galle (we didn't read that in our Sri Lankan tea leaves). We have fingers crossed for one test in Galle and one in Colombo in 2025, but who can say we won't play two in Galle again?

The big difference in 2025 will be cost & availability, especially in Galle. February is the high season and with seemingly more Russians in Sri Lanka now than in Moscow, camped up for months, hotel prices are now double the price of what we paid in 2022.

In May 2023 our hotels for a Galle test have little to no availabilty in Feb 2024. Thus, we must be ready for 2025, and so too you as numbers will be limited.

When vsiting after our Australian Cricket Tour to India 2023, we politely asked Sri Lanka Cricket for 3 tests, stating the economic benefits of spending another 8 nights in the country, so let's see what comes of it.

Pallekele International Cricket Stadium (Kandy) is a nicer test cricket ground than Singhalese Sports Club (SSC) (Colombo), but Sri Lanka's capital has more to do than the capital of the Kandyan Kingdom. You arrive & leave from Colombo, so having 1 test there will be much more convenient.

As a venue that no longer hosts white-ball, we'd be extremely surprised and disappointed if we did not play in Galle. Playing two tests in Galle in 2022 could however bring Sri Lanka Cricket to host the Australian Test Cricket Tour to Sri Lanka 2025 in Colombo and Kandy.

We'd prefer not to play in Kandy to put more emphasis on our Sea-Tea-Sea Road Trip across the lush hill country. Always looking for different things to do, after our Four Points Road Trip 2022 (even with a fuel crisis), driving a near straight line through Sri Lanka from Colombo to Arugam Bay is our next unique adventure.

After 2 nights in Colombo we go up into the glorious hills for 2 nights in Nuwara Eliya and 2 nights in Ella before rolling down for 2 nights in Arugam Bay.

From there we go to Colombo, Galle, or Kandy for the 1st Test for 8 nights. We then get you to the 2nd test for 8 more nights before going to Colombo (if not already there) for your flight home or our trip north.

If Galle hosts two tests again, it will likely be another 17 night tour, with a 4 night break between test matches.

After the tests we go to back Jaffna to explore all that we missed in 2022. Crossing the Indian Ocean at Elephant Pass, you enter an entirely different Sri Lanka. Our eye-opening 2 nights in 2022 is why we have 4 nights in 2025.

Leaving Jaffna, we return to the beach resort mecca of Negombo just north of Colombo's Bandaranaike Airport, for one more night (if need be) to meet your departing flight.

Our full Australian Cricket Tour to Sri Lanka 2025 will be 28 nights, but you are welcome to come for as few as 8 for just one test if that's all you can. With many expected to tour, including those that missed 2022, we can only welcome 60 on our hotel tours. This is first in, first served, literally.

In the best stand in Galle International Cricket Stadium, put your hand up and the barkeep will bring ice-cold Lion Lager and hot lunch to your seat (in exchange for rupees!). The 'best seats in the house' are included in our Galle hotel tour only.
