Pick a player, choose a team and get swept up in the sports fever that grips Melbourne year-round.
See at least one match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Catch a game of Australian Rules football (AFL) or cricket at the legendary Boxing Day Test. Stop by the National Sports Museum to see an amazing collection of sporting memorabilia.
Catch the Australian Open at Melbourne Park in January, plus music and family events at Rod Laver Arena, Margaret Court Arena and Hisense Arena, also the venue for basketball and cycling.
Cheer on one and all at AAMI Park, where you could see National Rugby League (NRL) team Melbourne Storm, Rugby Union team Melbourne Rebels, or soccer teams Melbourne Victory and Melbourne Heart.
Please note that Etihad Stadium is located in the Docklands precinct, next to Southern Cross Station.
