Enjoyed an informative hour-long tour of Rod Laver Arena. The tour included a glimpse into a tour player's life at a major...from the locker rooms to the media rooms and down the long hall lined with life-sized posters of all past champions, past the trophy cases where the champions trophies are displayed. This is a state of the art tennis... More

Whether it's rock concerts or world class sporting events this place does it well! Comfortable seating, organised staff, plenty of facilities, food, wine, beer, coffee, tea, soft drinks or water - it's all available. Public transport in and around this facility is fantastic. If driving there is ample parking available and very well sign posted to help.

This was our first time at the Australian Open and we loved it so much were headed back in 2017. We went on day 1 with daytime tickets for Margaret Court and loved that there were so many matches to choose from and we got to see Nadal, Murray, Raonic, Tsonga and Djokovic on the practice courts. On the first... More

A truly inspiring visit to the Melbourne Park grounds and the Rod Laver Arena. Just walking around the park, you feel the vibe and energy of the location.

Especially if your a tennis fan even in the slightest. Is great to walk down the hall of champions and learn about the history of the Australian open. You get to go into the arena where is all happens, whip also visiting the newly built Margaret court arena. Excellent guide, patient with all questions. Well worth doing.

The sound is really good. The lighting was also really cool. It bothered me as I was in a seat the amount of people going up and down the walkway but I guess there's not much you can do about that!
