If you are visiting Melbourne during the winter you would be certifiably insane to miss the chance to see -- live, not on TV -- an Aussie Rules football match. No, it's not like rugby, or American football, or even soccer. It's a whole different sport and has to be seen to be believed. The pace is much, much faster than any of the other forms of football, the players incredibly fit, and the skills, especially "marking" (catching the ball) are just unbelievable. Viator has a tour for newbies; it's definitely worth considering. You go with a local guide who explains the whole thing, buys you a meat pie with sauce and a beer at quarter time (essential, no excuses) and will help you decide which team to barrack for... well, there's no fun unless you are a supporter. Go Magpies!
