The Ashes


Where it all started in 1994

Speak to our team now

Adelaide - the birthplace of the Barmy Army

In 1994, a group of backpackers descended on the Adelaide Oval in front of the iconic scoreboard and began singing songs to support the England team. The press branded them the ‘Barmy Army’ for there unbounded support and the rest as they say his history. It also happens to arguably be the most picturesque ground in the world and the town itself lives and breathes cricket.

As well as the matter of an Ashes Test, explore over 200 cellar doors within an hour’s drive of the city, get up close and personal with Aussie wildlife in the wild and relax on stunning golden beaches on the city’s door-step. Boasting a Mediterranean climate and relaxed vibe, exceptional food and wine, this is one Test not to be missed.
