Lilac Hill is a cricket ground in Western Australia in the Perth suburb of Guildford, where the Swan River flows around its southern and eastern sides. The ends of the ground are known as the river end and the pavilion end.

In 1990 the West Australian Cricket Association (WACA) hosted a festival match at the ground, with a Cricket Australia's Chairman's XI playing the touring English XI. Since then, the WACA has continued to host an annual match at Lilac Hill against the visiting international cricket team and a Chairman's XI. The inaugural 1990 match set an attendance record of 12,000 and subsequent years have attracted good crowds also.

Continuation of the match in Perth has been under pressure in recent years due to the full schedule of touring teams. In 2006, the format of the match was changed slightly to an "Invitational XI" v the Chairman's XI. In 2010 it was announced that the season opening match would no longer be held, due to increased constraints of international cricket scheduling.[1]
