The beautiful city of Hobart has been chosen as a host for the ICC T20 World Cup 2020.
Bellerive Oval sits on the eastern shores of the Derwent River, across the water but only a short 10-minute drive from Hobart’s city centre. Originally opened in 1914, the venue didn’t take its place as Hobart’s first-class cricket headquarters until the 1987-88 season.
The ground has been upgraded significantly over time, with the new Ricky Ponting Stand opening in early 2015 in time for the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup. Bellerive Oval currently hosts both domestic and international cricket, as well as Australian Football League matches.
Bellerive Oval will host eight ICC Men's T20 World Cup matches, more than any other venue. All Group A matches will be played in Hobart with Bangladesh joined by The Netherlands, Namibia and Scotland. Tickets are on sale now!
Tasmania, the island state of Australia, lies 40 degrees south of the equator. An archipelago of more than 334 islands in the temperate zone of the southern hemisphere, it is a land of dramatic coastlines, rugged mountains, spectacular wilderness and sparkling highland lakes.
Tasmania offers visitors a safe, affordable, rejuvenating holiday experience in one of the world’s most unspoilt locations. World-class experiences like Hobart’s Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) and Saffire at Freycinet and annual events like being the finish line for the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race and Dark Mofo have given a new edge to the Tasmanian visitor experience. Throw in an extraordinary restaurant scene, where talented chefs do their thing with some of the best raw ingredients on the planet in a world-class destination.
Iconic attractions include the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, Cradle Mountain, Freycinet Peninsula, Bay of Fires and the State’s five world heritage-listed convict sites, led by Port Arthur.
Tasmania has a rich built heritage from the convict era and has sensitively and successfully repurposed a number of historic buildings, such as Ritchie’s Mill in Launceston, Hobart’s Salamanca shopping, dining and market precinct, and Henry Jones Art Hotel.
Tasmania’s compact size, stunning gourmet food and cool-climate wine, unhurried lifestyle, refreshing climate and relaxed and welcoming locals combine to offer visitors an unforgettable time away from home.
