Tennis fans visiting Melbourne should make time to visit Melbourne Park, home to the three stadiums (Rod Laver Arena, Margaret Court Arena, and Hisense Arena) where the Australian Open is played. Rod Laver Arena offers public and private tours (for the physically challenged) both of which are reasonably priced.
Since my wife uses a wheel chair to get around we chose the private tour and spent an an amazing hour and fifteen minutes with a knowledgeable guide visiting the Rod Laver facility and enjoyed an insiders view walking through Australian Open tournament control, the men's change room used by the world's best tennis players, the Walk of Fame, superboxes and VIP hospitality areas, inside the media centre theatrette and, events permitting, onto the Arena. (all subject to availability).
This was an unforgettable experience for tennis sports fans and should not be missed!
