2. The Australian Open 
If you are in Melbourne between the 16th and the 29th January, the Australian Open is a must do! Head into Melbourne Park at the beginning of the tournament with a ground pass in hope to catch the hottest tennis stars smashing the competition on the outdoor courts! 

The Australian Open Festival provides three terraces dedicated to Melbourne’s best food and drink, an awesome line up of bands and artists, and plenty of activities from face-painting to massages and beauty pampering. This will give any non-tennis fans a reason to love the Australian Open!
