The Australian Open attracts spectators from near and far who come to experience the energy at one of the world’s biggest sporting and entertainment events. Enjoy some elite tennis action on the iconic Rod Laver Arena before catching a live gig at Grand Slam® Oval, all beneath the sunny blue skies of Melbourne in January. The colourful crowds and festive atmosphere amid Melbourne Park’s world-class facilities make the Australian Open the place to be during Australia’s summer of tennis.
Melbourne saves its best for the Australian Open, with an array of art, culture and music events adding to the atmosphere when the Grand Slam® reaches the pointy end.
The city's lauded laneway life is just a serve and volley from Melbourne Park, allowing you to load up on caffeine and bumper breakfasts at quaint cafes before a five-setter, shop for clothes and accessories to look the part at centre court, or wind down in a hidden bar afterwards. Warm summer nights are perfect for outdoor drinks with friends to dissect the day's play, for catching a local band in a bar, or sampling the city's best fare.
Some of Melbourne and Victoria's most iconic sights are just a short trip out of town, so you can pair your sightings of tennis stars with a look at local legends and be back in the city in time for the next contest.
When: 19 January - 1 February 2015
