Attraction details
Reviewed 18 August 2017

Melburnians love sport and the Melbourne & Olympic Parks sports complex testifies to this. Melbourne Park has the Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena and Margaret Court Arena, all of which play host to the Australian Tennis Open, one of the world's four Tennis Grand Slam events. Melbourne Park also hosts Australia's National Tennis Centre.Olympic Park has its eponymous Stadium, plus AMMI Park. Among many events, the Melbourne & Olympic Parks complex plays host to football (soccer), rugby union and rugby league and other events. This Melbourne & Olympic Parks complex must rank amongst the world's best, particulary as it's conveniently located within easy walking distance of the Melbourne CBD.

This is simply the best sporting precinct on the planet. The reason: it hosts several stadiums for sports and entertainment (football, soccer, tennis, rugby, and every imaginable concert and event / day or night). And in almost every category it is acknowledged as the best in its class ie the facilities for the Australian Open tennis tournament. With all these facilities connected through a series of bridges and paths; all within short proximity to the other. And to best of all, in Melbourne City and a stones throw to all those entertainment hubs and amazing cafe and more formal restaurants.

can't think of many cities in the world that have a sporting precinct like melbourne. in a small area you have the MCG, aami park and tennis arenas. best way too get there is too either walk from fed square or take a unique tram to arenas. don't drive as parking when events are in is exorbitant
