This tour is an unforgettable experience for sports lovers, and is full of options that let you customize your experience until it is just right. Visit Flemington, home of the Melbourne Cup and the horse race that stopped the nation. Pass by Commonwealth Games Athletes’ Village. Drive around Albert Park on the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit alongside Melbourne Sports & Aquatic Centre, and stop off for an awesome lunch overlooking Etihad Stadium.

Then, choose from one of the two included options to finish off your morning tour :

Option 1 :
Go behind the scenes of the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). With a packed capacity of up to 99,000 fans, and known as “the G,” this is a super stage for Australian sports—including the centerpiece stadium for the 1956 Olympics, the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games, and International Cricket and Australian Rules Football.

Option 2 :
Explore the National Sports Museum, which houses the Australian Gallery of Sport and Olympic Museum, Sport Australia Hall of Fame, Australian Cricket Hall of Fame, and Australian Football exhibition (including Australian Football Hall of Fame).
