Build your own itinerary
The Australian Open is the first tennis Grand Slam of the year, when the biggest names in the game try to start the season off with a bang.
It's also one of the best times to be in Melbourne, with the city on its best behaviour and ready to show off its lauded laneway life, its coffee culture and cool cafes, boutiques and designer stores, hidden bars and lip-smackingly good restaurants. There's an array of art, culture and music events to occupy any tennis down-time, while balmy summer nights are perfect for outdoor drinks with friends. You can even make a quick dash out of town to discover some of Melbourne and Victoria's most iconic sights between matches, or hang around a while to soak up the sights.
We've listed our biggest hits below so you can build your own ultimate Australian Open itinerary.
