Been in Adelaide for the last couple of days and on my travels around the city saw some fantastic grounds without having any idea as to whether they were 1st or 5th grade venues
At first grade level, Sydney is much the same
Upon reflection (and it's 20 years ago btw) North Sydney, Mosman, Rawson, Drummoyne, Pratten Park, Old Kings, Waitara, Howell and Manly were pretty amazing
Petersham, Coogee, Waverley and Chatswood were picturesque but with rubbish outfields/pitches and that's a reflection upon the groundsman/budget more than anything
Hurstville was butt ugly but did the job
Only Sutherland, Raby and Fairfield were little more than paddocks
Thoughts on your part of the world?
