‘We spent yesterday on a tour of Flemington Race Course and the National Sports Museum. The day was great and Tamara was a wonderful host. I am from Melbourne and we also drove into parts of the city I had never been to, which was great. Tamara was very knowledgeable and passionate about Melbourne and its sporting credentials. Lunch in the Docklands was very nice. Both the food and views were excellent. My wife and I would highly recommend this tour.’

    I’m not a big sports fan but I really enjoyed it. Flemington was definitely my favourite part. Our tour guide, Tamara, was great and showed us the course from the horses perspective which was really cool. The lunch was good. You won’t be hungry afterwards They definitely fill your plate.

    My wife and I booked this trip as we are both mad on sport. The trip was really informative and we enjoyed every aspect of the trip. We were the only people booked onto the trip, but despite this they still ran the trip, which we were delighted about. The tour guide was very easy going and knew all aspects of the trip. He was very accommodating and went out of his way to help us. It was extremely well organised and can’t complain at all about it. If you like sport, do this excursion!

Experience the Victorian capital’s magnificent obsession with sport on the popular half-day tour. It’s the essential Melbourne experience for visiting sports enthusiasts!

You can opt for the convenience of CBD hotel pick-up or meet your ‘sports guru’ guide at Federation Square. The first stop on this Melbourne Morning Sports Tour is Flemington Racecourse in the city’s inner west — home to the world-renowned Melbourne Cup — the ‘race that stops a nation’. You’ll enjoy an expansive view of the track and your guide will highlight surrounding points of interest.

Next, you’ll drive through the 2006 Commonwealth Games Athletes’ Village, and take a quick (but not too quick!) lap around the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix street circuit in Albert Park. You’ll also pass by the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre.

This Melbourne Morning Sports Tour culminates with a visit to the famous Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in Yarra Park, where you’ll enjoy an informative ‘behind the scenes’ tour. The tour encompasses many areas inside the stadium that the general public doesn’t get to see. You’ll visit the player change rooms, players’ balcony, the Bill Lawry Cricket Centre, and the Long Room (all subject to availability on the day).

This Melbourne Morning Sports Tour ends with a bistro-style lunch with your group of fellow sports fans.
