SPORTS LOVERS BRONZE Tour with Australian Open Tour.
City sightseeing with a difference. Visit the venues that host some of Australia’s favourite sporting events.
Your day starts with a drive around the Melbourne Formula 1 Grand Prix Circuit at Albert Park. We'll then visit Flemington Racecourse, home of the Melbourne Cup "the race that stops the nation". Our journey will also pass through the Commonwealth Games 2006 Athletes Village and past a number of sporting venues including Australian Rules Football training grounds.
AUSTRALIAN OPEN TOUR - Tour behind-the-scenes of the Melbourne Park precinct - home of the worlds biggest January sporting event - The Australian Open. Visitors will experience a unique tour through one of Australia's most dynamic sports and entertainment venues. On non-event days you will explore the hidden gems and player areas of Rod Laver or Margaret Court Arenas. Even when access is restricted on Event Days, the tour still provides a great experience. Walk through the areas only few see: the new and world-class Player Pod, training areas, changing rooms, player lounge and underground paths are just some examples of the places you might experience on an Aus Open Tour.
**On Event Days, tours may have restricted access - your guide will try as hard as possible to take you on as much of the tour as is possible.
**This tour is currently only available on Mondays and Fridays. This tour is unavailable from mid-December until early February.
The tour concludes after a Pub Style lunch with a drink. Guests will also receive a keepsake gift.
A fabulous way to explore Melbourne's sporting culture!
