Melbourne is the perfect host city for the AO and a fantastic city to visit, especially in the summer. The city, the coast and the countryside have much to offer, from decadent restaurants to lively bars, beautiful gardens, long sandy beaches, art-filled streets and inspiring museums. Whether you're staying in Melbourne or looking for a new adventure along the Great Ocean Road, Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula and beyond; Victoria is a premier destination ensuring you have plenty to do and experience in AO.
As an Official Travel Agency (a position we have held since 1997), we will soon have a full range of travel packages including official tickets, carefully selected hotels, AO Premium experiences and additional travel services. All packages start with upper-reference tickets at Rod Laver Arena (these are the best shaded seats on the upper level) and from here you can upgrade to lower-level seats, including Super Row. There are many options available.
Our team is currently working on our Australian Open 2024 packages and we hope they will be available soon.
