What You Can Expect

Sports Lovers Tour of Melbourne plus Foster's Australia Brewery

Australian Beer - Carlton Draught

Get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the famous athletic venues in sports-mad Melbourne! Meet your friendly, knowledgeable guide at Federation Square in the morning and hop aboard a comfortable coach to begin your action-packed day. 

Make your way to Flemington Racecourse, where you’ll walk on the grassy track of the hoof-pounding Melbourne Cup. Tour the residential village built for the 2006 Commonwealth Games, which was crafted to the highest standards of urban design and equipped to house up to 6,000 athletes and officials. When hunger strikes, head to Docklands for lunch near Etihad Stadium, home of the Australian Football League. 

Continue on to Albert Park, where you’ll have a chance to drive a lap around the F1 Grand Prix circuit. Visit the world-class facilities of the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre to see where local athletes train, and take a behind-the-scenes tour of either the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) or the National Sports Museum (make your selection at the time of booking).

In the afternoon, take a guided tour of the famous Foster’s Australia Brewery to see firsthand how Aussies’ favorite beers are produced. Grab a seat at the tasting bar and enjoy a refreshing finish to the day with samples of national favorites including Foster’s, Victoria Bitter, Carlton Draught and Crown Lager.

What a wonderful tour. Far better and longer than we expected. Anthony was friendly and knowledgeable in all areas sport. The MCG tour was very interesting, Flemington was larger than expected and the Carlton Brewery tour was very informative. Anyone with only a slight interest in sport would find this day out a real treat.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2012

I bought this tour as a birthday present for my husband and didn't particularly expect to enjoy it myself but it was a briliant day out. We were a small group and were picked up in a great little bus and were taken to various sporting locations by a lovely guide who really knew his stuff. Not only did he have a wealth of sporting knowledge he also pointed out places of interest around and about Melbourne which we may never have seen without his knowledge. The guide was friendly and managed to get all the participants on the tour to gel together and ensured we all had a great time. We were given plenty of time to look around the venues and had a relaxed lunch which was included in the tour. I would recommend this tour as a really enjoyable day out for everyone, sports fan or not.
