One of Melbourne’s first major event’s of the year starts with the Australian Open, running over the last two fortnights in January. With more than 100 year’s under their belt, the 112th annual event is the first of the four Grand Slam tennis events held around the world (the other 3 being the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open).
Drawing crowds in the hundreds of thousands, the event has evolved over the years, creating multiple ticketing systems to cater for all groups, ages and preferences. Passes can be purchased as either Ground Passes or After 5 Ground Passes, depending on when you are able to attend. After 5 tickets come at a reduced cost for those looking to attend the event after 5pm. Both tickets include access to the main grounds, outdoor courtyards, entertainment and the Hisense Arena.
This is one of the best events to soak up the sun surrounded by friend and family, all with the rush of tennis all around.
