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!

Went there for a special event with Roger Federer. Saw Lleyton Hewitt, Rod Laver himself, and Roger took a half show/half serious game against Jo-Wilfrid Tsonga. Also saw Shane Warne briefly. The place is great and easy to get in or out.

Went to see Michael Bubble at Rod Laver and sat in the super box. Excellent viewing and plenty of space. Host Donna was great. Super box included unlimited drinks and food which was fresh and delicious. Acoustics sounded great as did Bubble.

Wanted to join the tour which brings you into the area and behind the scene access, but weather was too hot! Ended up taking some photos and headed for indoor.

It's also used as a concert and convention venue. But its primary reason for being is as the home of the Australian Tennis Open every summer. You can visualize Roger, Rafa and Serena battling on centre court under the hot Aussie sun. It has been looking a little tired lately. But should soon be better with the renovations underway.
