Auto traffic on GOR on Australia Day 2014 holiday weekend

Planning a one day pre booked organized tour of the GOR. We are only in Melbourne for 4 days so we must take the tour on the 2014 Australia Day long weekend...either the Saturday, Sunday or Monday. The tour is long enough without getting stuck in holiday traffic. Should I be worried ?

And would one of these 3 days have less traffic ? Thank you for any guidance.

The GOR will be busy, but I would not be too concerned, especially if you have already booked. I assume you are going on a tour? The Australian Day long weekend normally signals the end of the school holidays and families often head back home. I think Sunday would be your best option.
