Overview

A Brief Overview

Experience Australia’s biggest sporting event and Grand Slam of Asia Pacific in 2020 with Events Travel.

The Australian Open is the first of the four tennis Grand Slams held each year, alongside the French Open, Wimbledon and US Open. Out of these Grand Slams, the Australian Open is the most attended and Australia’s most popular event (over 740,000 fans experienced the atmosphere in 2018).

The Australian Open has a long history dating back to 1905 and has created many of tennis’s most defining moments —too numerous to name—. For over a century, Melbourne has been transformed into the epicentre of tennis with fans coming from around the globe to experience what the city and the tournament is renowned for —sophisticated entertainment, fun for the family and the best tennis on the planet —.

The event takes place at Melbourne’s sporting hub, Melbourne Park, where numerous show courts and Arenas —including Rod Laver Arena— come alive with installations, hospitality venues, stages, big-screens and activations for all to enjoy over the two week event period.

January is a fantastic time to visit Melbourne, with warm weather making day-trips to the beaches, parks and attractions very enjoyable. And the long summer days ensure you can make the most of the evenings and atmosphere at the Australian Open.

2020 will be our 26th year providing packages to the Australian Open and 18th year as an Official Tour Operator, having helped found the OTO program back in 2002. With this experience, we’re sure you will trust us to provide you with an exceptional Australian Open package and travel experience.

We look forward to welcoming you to Australian Open 2020.
