Tour description provided by Viator

Everyone knows Melbourne is Australia’s sporting capital but to understand why, go behind the scenes with a local on a Sports Lovers tour. All Sports Lovers tours take you to Flemington Racecourse, home of the Melbourne Cup horserace, and on a drive around the Formula 1 Grand Prix circuit at Albert Park. Upgrade to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Australia's most famous sporting stadium, and add an in-depth tour of the National Sports Museum. Take a backstage tour of Rod Laver arena, home to the Australian Open tennis championships, and play a match on a show court for the ultimate tennis experience. There are four Sports Lovers tours to choose from, depending on your sport of choice, highlighting the history, excitement and famous venues of Australia’s most sports mad city.

Sit in the coach's box, see the media facilities, visit exclusive member areas, walk on the hallowed turf and smell the liniment in the change rooms when you take a Sports Lovers tour of Melbourne!
