How to get to the MCG?
The best way is public transport (trams/trains). Metro Melbourne put on extra services (trams and trains) before and after the game. Cars and parking are always a nightmare on the big day plus if it rains, Yarra Park will get muddy with the possibility of getting bogged.
Whats the weather forecast?
Melbourne weather.. ha! Four seasons in one day, but the bureau has forecast a nice day.
Where can I watch/hear the grand final?
