Overview

Long before you arrive, the distant sound of screaming engines will entice you into this iconic Australian event. Be prepared for lots of noise, action, and for Australian’s being, well, Australian! This weekend in March brings all of the excitement you would expect when you mix Aussies, fast cars and abundantly flowing beer. Opt for a luxury VIP experience, or hit the grandstands for a truly authentic experience. While you are there, take the energy of the day into the night and hit up one of the after-parties to enjoy the unique flavour that Melbourne has to offer.

Australians are even more sports mad than Brits so every day of the Grand Prix was packed. I liked the fact that you could get a ticket which let you sit in different stands on different days. So much to do in the circuit unlike...More

Not sure why one review was negative about crowd control because we got in and out very easily both at the venue and to and from on the tram. Really enjoyed this but have not been before so can't comment on what it may have...More

The place to be in March if you love all about cars, racing and love anything about Formula One and the atmosphere.

After seeing the much publicized Black Eyed Peas being promoted, I cannot tell you what a complete waste of time it was. They made people queue for an hour, which meant you missed the concert, so they could apparently check your ticket. Yes, that’s right,...More

General admission on the Friday - practice day. Cheaper but absolutely fantastic. Wear comfy shoes, take a water bottle, a hat and sunscreen. There are shady spots to rest and be prepared to walk a lot. There are many vantage points to see the racing...More

Melbourne is a street circuit, during the year some of the race circuit is used for normal traffic, id be surprised if you could drive around the designated track at times other than when the race is on
