The Gabba is his first love, but Perth's Optus Stadium is fast shaping as the second home of ace batsman Marnus Labuschagne.
Labuschagne was the star of the show on the opening day of the first Test against the West Indies, scoring an unbeaten 154 to lead Australia to a dominant 2-293.
The 28-year-old also dominated during the most recent Test at the venue, posting totals of 143 and 50 against New Zealand in 2019.
Interestingly, Labuschagne didn't earn man-of-the-match honours in that 296-run win, with the gong going to Mitchell Starc for his returns of 5-52 and 4-45.
The COVID-19 pandemic and WA's subsequent border closures meant no Tests were played in Perth in 2020 and 2021.
But Labuschagne picked up where he left off on Wednesday, peeling off 16 boundaries against the West Indies during his 270-ball knock.
After the epic effort, Labuschagne said his vast experience on the Gabba deck meant batting in Perth wasn't a huge adjustment.
"I love this venue, I love playing in Perth because the conditions are so similar to Brisbane," Labuschagne said.
"I've had some good success in Brisbane, so it's nice to be able to come to a ground where the characteristics of the wicket are very similar.
"Growing up playing a lot on the Gabba really helps with that because you know there's light at the end of the tunnel.
"You know you have to put in the hard work early. You're not hitting as many balls, you're letting a lot of balls go."
Before the match started, local star Cameron Green revealed he would be seeking advice from Labuschagne on the key to success on the Optus Stadium deck.
Green had only played one first-class match at the venue and Labuschagne's heroics against NZ were duly noted by his teammates.
Labuschagne's innings against the West Indies wasn't completely flawless, with his top edge for four off the bowling of Jayden Seales hardly conventional.
Next ball, with Labuschagne on 63, he edged Seales in the vacant gap between second and fourth slip.
He also had a heart-in-his-mouth moment on 75 when a thick edge off Kemar Roach flew high to second slip, where Jason Holder narrowly missed getting his right hand to the ball.
But Labuschagne maintained his concentration and laughed away the near misses on the way to a perfect start to the summer.
