The city of Melbourne is vibrant and cosmopolitan with plenty of excellent restaurants and lively bars and the Australian Grand Prix circuit, in Albert Park just south of the Yarra, is fifteen minutes from the centre by tram.
It is traditional for the stunning city of Melbourne to host a Grand Prix at the end of the Australian Summer when the weather is ideal. Sport is what Melbourne does best and the 2017 Australian Grand Prix race weekend is a four day festival of motorsport. Access to the Albert Park track and grandstands is easy, the Melbourne F1 Grand Prix schedule runs to time, there are plenty of food and drink outlets and there are entertainments galore – the whole Australian Formula One event is extremely well organised.
If you are travelling this far then it would be a pity not to enjoy more of the spectacular scenery and sights of Australia. No visit is complete without spending a few nights in Sydney. Sydney Harbour really is breathtakingly beautiful and the best way to see it is from the water on one the many ferry boats which criss-cross Sydney harbour regularly. Fly north to Cairns, starting point for exploring the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforest or drive south from Melbourne along the Great Ocean Road to Adelaide. Across the water is Tasmania – the hidden gem. It’s pure and natural with plenty of unique wildlife and untouched wilderness. You can fly or take the ferry from Melbourne.
