Save yourself the trouble and only pack what you need when you move city. Catch all the action when the Ashes Series comes to Australia

Cricket fans will definitely want to catch the return of the Commonwealth Bank Ashes Series 2013/14 when it tours Australia from November 21 to January 7.

With England having taken out the title in their home country, Australian fans know that there's a score to settle come November!

Brisbane is the lucky city launching the first of the five tests with a match between the British and English teams at the Wolloongabba (The Gabba) cricket stadium.

It's sure to be one of the biggest events in Brisbane this year, so make sure you've got your tickets and travel plans sorted if you want a front-row seat to all the action! Mantra has plenty of holiday accommodation in the area, with Mantra South Bank located just five minutes away from The Gabba.

England is the only international cricket team to visit Australia this summer, so make the most of your summer vacation with the Ashes Series.

All about the Ashes Series

The Ashes Series is a longstanding, time-honoured tradition of sporting competition between England and Australia that is one of the most established international cricket contests in the world.

Since the 1800s, British and Australian cricket teams have clashed on both home and away soil in a bid to take home the prized urn trophy. Australia gave Britain its first loss on home soil in 1882 with a team led by William Lloyd Murdoch, which saw the English team beaten by seven runs.

Every Ashes Series involves five test matches. It is typically held biennially, alternating between England and Australia, although this year will see the first Ashes Series being scheduled back-to-back after the recent June/August tour in England.

Tickets are on sale now, so make sure you've got your seats booked before they all disappear!
