If your idea of sports-fuelled fun involves deafeningly loud whizzing sounds and gutsy, competitive racing, then the Melbourne Formula One Australian Grand Prix is the sporting event for you. As part of the annual Formula 1 Racing Championship season, the Melbourne Grand Prix is sure to stir your senses and remind you what speed ultimately sounds and looks like.
Melbourne, Victoria is the proud host to Australia's Formula One Grand Prix event and, as host, ensures its more than 300, 000 guests to the annual event enjoy an unforgettable Formula One racing experience.
The Melbourne Formula One event is held over four days in Albert Park, located in inner-city Melbourne, near popular St Kilda. Grandstand and standing positions circuit-side allow you to get as close to the action as you desire, to truly appreciate the remarkable speeds at which the drivers tackle the circuit.
But it's not all about the cars. The entertainment off the circuit is pretty impressive too, with expos and live music entertainment dished up by some of Australia's biggest bands. The event's central location also makes it easy for you to explore Melbourne's city streets and laneways, and take advantage of the 'F1 accommodation' nearby.
Victoria is a beautiful state that is also worth discovering if you have the opportunity to extend your visit to Australia past the few days of Formula One racing.
Tickets are available at concession, adult, family and corporate rates for single-day or four-day event passes, so start planning your speedy sporty introduction to Melbourne, Australia.
