One of the best tours to do. Takes you behind the scenes to the mens locker rooms. Our son who loves tennis was in awe. Our tour guide was great. A must do if you like tennis.

Bittersweet because I saw Rafa and Roger play against each other, something that seems to be becoming a rarity; but heartbreaking because of how the finals turned out.

The australian open is an amazing tournament with such a great atmosphere. A great place for every tennis fan. The Rod Laver arena is a great place to watch the best tennis players in the world. Happy to have been there to watch my favorites.

Rod Laver Arena is most noted for the Australian Open Tennis which usually runs the last two weeks of January. For the rest of the year it is a great concert venue. Closest train stations are either Jolimont or Richmond. It is so much easier to get tickets to matches here than to Wimbledon. You have many opportunities to see... More

Up shot my hand and a lovely gentleman explained that he had purchased two ground tickets, but had now had tickets for the Federer/Nadal semi-final.

I have seen the Australian open here, Monster trucks, The crusty demons and even One Direction - this venue continues to amaze me with its flexibility. Extremely easy access by train/tram or car - A must when in Melbourne

Great venue for a concert because of the size you are not too far away from the stage. All the seats are pretty close.

Went there to watch Australian Open 2014. Had so much fun. Watched Li Na, Djokovic, Williams in one day. January is the hottest time in Australia. The whole week is above 40oC. Remember to take water bottle. If you can't stand the heat, do not choose sun seats. Shadow seats are so much better. Take some food if you can... More
