‘Such a great day! Our tour guide Tamara knew so much about sport, the sights, and everything in between. The day included a nice local lunch. I will be recommending this to family and friends, both Australian and international. As a local, I learned so many things I never knew about Melbourne.’

    Really enjoyed the Sports tour. I went with a group of people from other trips, but it was very enjoyable. Our guide was very good and knowledgeable, about the horse racing track, the MCG and the Grand Prix circuit.

    Myself and eight mates visited Melbourne recently for a footy match and incorporated a tour into our schedule. We had a great time. Our guide Anthony was full of knowledge about the city and stadiums and combined it nicely with humour to entertain us. We saw everything we wanted to plus more, had a great lunch, and all went away happy. This is great value for money, well organised and every contact with the company was friendly. I highly recommend this tour.

    Picked up on time at designated point met by Anthony our guide for the tour. First stop, the MCG or as Anthony put it – Melbournians like to save on letters and simply call it the “G”. Saw the magnificent Sporting Precinct. Walked on the hallowed turf, through the stands, change rooms, the long room, and dining rooms, all with the aid of our guide Jim, who’s knowledge and enthusiasm was 1st class. This was followed with an adrenaline filled lap of the Grand Prix track at Albert Park with Anthony at the wheel. Tour finished with lunch at the Channel 7 Cafe at Etihad Stadium. Absolutely brilliant experience. We would do it all again in a heartbeat. One tour not to be missed in Melbourne.

    Our guide Anthony was interesting and well informed about all aspects of what we saw on the tour. It ran on time but was not rushed. The MCG tour is a must as it gives a great overview of both the ground and its history. If you love sport and have a day to spare then do this tour.

Experience the Victorian capital’s magnificent sporting obsession on this Melbourne Sports Lovers Tour. You’ll visit the city’s most iconic sporting venues and enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of the mighty MCG. A visit to the state-of-the-art Australian Sports Museum is also included on the itinerary. This tour is a must-do for all sports enthusiasts!

On this tour, you can opt for the convenience of CBD hotel pick-up or meet your ‘sports guru’ guide at Federation Square. Your first stop is Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne’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.

From there, 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.

Your next stop is the iconic MCG, where you’ll be treated to a tour of restricted areas that most people don’t get to see. You’ll visit the player change rooms, players’ balcony, Bill Lawry Cricket Centre, and the Long Room. You’ll even have the opportunity to walk beside the hallowed turf.

Participants on this Melbourne Sports Lovers Tour also get to explore the new-look Australian Sports Museum. Situated at the MCG, it’s home to the most comprehensive collection of sporting memorabilia in the country. Cricket, Australian Rules Football (AFL), horse racing, cycling, Australia’s Olympic campaigns, and many more areas are covered by the museum. You’ll learn fascinating facts about famous sporting events and legendary competitors — from both the modern era and days gone by.

And finally, you can chat with your fellow sports-mad guests about the highlights of the day over a hearty bistro-style lunch with a house drink.

This Melbourne Sports Lovers Tour packs a lot in, but the pace is easy and relaxed. It’s a comprehensive introduction to the city’s top sporting venues and traditions.
