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!
Please note: Australian Open tours are not available mid-December to Mid-February and various other dates due to events. All venues visited are active events sites and are sometimes closed to non-event visitors. On such occasions we will endeavour to show you as much of a site as is possible.
You should have a basic level of fitness as some walking is required, including stairs. Remember to bring your camera!
The price quoted is for one person. Tours operate with a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 20 participants.
Melbourne weather can be variable - we recommend you check the weather forecast and dress appropriately including carrying sunscreen or an umbrella where necessary.

We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
