This Melbourne sport tour is for anyone who loves to see balls fly, hear crowds roar, and feel the excitement of a close game! You'll get behind the scenes at venues that host Australia's favourite sporting events.
On the morning of your tour you will explore a range of sporting venues, including Flemington, home of the Melbourne Cup, the horse race that stops the nation. We'll also drive through the Commonwealth Games Athletes' Village and around Albert Park on the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit, and you'll tour behind the scenes of the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The MCG is a super stage for Australian sport, a stadium for the 1956 Olympics, Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games, International Cricket and Australian Rules Football.
Highlights of the tour include the Northern Stand, coaches' box, players' change rooms, cricket viewing room, Long Room, Bill Lawry Cricket Centre, aerial views, the new MCG Museum, the Ponsford Stand and a walk on the hallowed turf (all subject to availability). We'll then stop for lunch, which you'll enjoy while overlooking the arena at Etihad Stadium! After lunch choose between a tour of the Australian Open at Melbourne & Olympic Parks OR The National Sports Museum at The MCG.
After lunch you will enjoy an insiders' view of the Australian Open site. You are taken through Australian Open tournament control, the change room used by the world's best tennis players, the Walk of fame, up to the superboxes and VIP hospitality areas, inside the media centre theatrette and, events permitting, into an arena!
