It’s not enough to watch it on TV or read about it in the papers. To really experience it you have to be there – and the Sports Lovers Tour takes you to ground zero of some of Australia’s most beloved sporting events.

Start your day with a visit to Flemington, home of the Melbourne Cup, the horse race that stops the nation. Walk on to the hallowed turf and soak up the atmosphere of a place where legends like Phar Lap and Makybe Diva thundered past the winning post.

Then it’s time to follow in the tyre smoke of racing legends like Michael Schumacher and take a lap of the Melbourne F1 Grand Prix Circuit at Alfred Park. You’ll do a lap and cruise through the Commonwealth Games Village from 2006, as well as see the Melbourne Sports & Aquatic Centre.

From there it’s time to go to the beating heart of Australian sports with exclusive tours of the MCG and the Rod Laver Arena.

The iconic MCG is Australia’s premiere cricket and AFL ground and its hallowed grandstands and turf have played host to everyone from Sir Donald Bradman to the legends of the VFL and then AFL. Over at the Rod Laver Arena, the best tennis players in the world like Serena Williams and Roger Federer have fought for, and won, the Australian Open.

Then it’s time for lunch at Etihad Stadium’s exclusive dining rooms that overlook the pitch where top-level cricket, AFL, rugby league, rugby union and soccer is played all year round.

The Sports Lovers Tour takes you all over Melbourne’s iconic sporting precinct and brings you a personal connection to places that have played host to some of the most cherished sporting events in Australia’s history.

This is a tour that will bring a big smile to the face of every sports fanatic and create unforgettable memories.
