EXPERIENCE BEHIND THE SCENES
Note: Check back here before your tour – we update this section regularly with news.
Do you love everything about the Australian Open? Tennis World offer exclusive behind the scenes tours of the Melbourne Park precinct – home of the biggest sporting event in the world in January.
Visitors will experience a unique tour through one of Australia’s most dynamic sports and entertainment venues. On the days when there are no shows on, explore the hidden gems and player areas of Rod Laver Arena or Margaret Court Arena. Even when access is restricted due to events on the day, the tour still provides a great experience.
THERE IS SO MUCH TO SEE ON THE TOUR – our experienced Tennis World guides walk you through the areas only few see. The new and world-class Player Pod, training areas, changing rooms, player lounge and underground paths are just some examples of places you might experience on our Aus Open tours. Walk on to Show Court 3 and take photos in front of the iconic Melbourne sign. With all of this and more, the tour provides a once in a lifetime opportunity.
On the days when there is an event* on, the team will try as hard as possible to take visitors on as much of the tour as possible.
Tours run Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 11.30am, 1.00pm and 2.30pm. Tours will not run on public holidays.
