  • Visiting the Australian Open (tennis) these grounds are amongst the best in the world. Seating on Rod Laver Arena is good - padded seats, good views from everywhere. Margaret Court Arena is small...  more »
  • A big area and heaps of walking tracks and parkland to relax and enjoy a break just out of the Melbourne CBD.  more »
