Book packages through hospitality desk. Very good food options with theses packages. Particularly liked Laneway Club. Come and go format was great for grabbing a beer or bio break between matches. The buffet was outstanding. Can only compare to the US Open, but venues are more intimate. People are very friendly.

It's been a few years since we were last here and we love the upgrade to Margaret Court Arena. Not many staff around so we could come and go whenever you wanted between points. TVs outside the door meant you didn't have to wait until the change of ends to get back in as you can see when each pint... More

The ambience of the arena is overwhelming - especially if you arrive early for the day! Not easy for older patrons to climb to one's place in the Upper Seating Area. There are npo hand rails in the seating area. View is always good - even if you have a large body in front of you. 😎

There probably is not a better set up for tennis and the Grand Slam anywhere in the world than Rod Laver Arena and the associated stadiums and courts. It is a great venue so close to the city and if you get bored with the tennis there are the parks that around the area. Melbourne should be very proud of... More

I can't believe how well managed this event is; the place is buzzing with spectators, yet getting to your seat or getting food etc is absolutely seamless.

Had seats in the upper section Door 15, Row DD Seats 509/510. These were above the middle of the court. We were up high enough to get a good view and not be hindered by retaining walls, but close to the exits for food and toilets.
