The Australian Open is the first tennis Grand Slam of the year and is Australia’s favourite sporting event. Despite a delayed start, the Australian Open is on and will be the biggest sporting event of the year and a historic edition. Once again, Melbourne will be leading the world in sports and major events.

With strong roots dating back to 1905, the Australian Open is the leading tennis Grand Slam and has fast become a celebration of tennis with its renowned festival-like atmosphere. Expect Melbourne Park to be electric with plenty of live entertainment, fabulous dining and bar installations, brand activations, shops and world-class facilities offering fun for the entire family. While 2021 will certainly be a different experience, fans can look forward to seeing their favourite tennis players up close and personal with only 25% ticket capacity, no Grounds Passes and three zones around each major arena. This means there will be fewer crowds and plenty of space to watch quality tennis and enjoy the lively atmosphere.

Having been involved with the Australian Open since 1995 and being a founding partner of the Official Tour Operator program in 1997, we are experts in organising travel to the Australian Open. This year we have a full range of Australian Open Packages available including tickets, fantastic accommodation, travel services and we’ve even got our own Superbox in Rod Laver Arena with hospitality for both the women’s and men’s finals. If you’re looking for an unbeatable AO experience, you can trust us to make it happen.

We look forward to welcoming you to what will be a historic Australian Open.

Rod Laver Arena Seating

New RLA seating plan

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, Australian Open 2021 will be run with only 25% seating capacity (subject to change). This reduces the number of available tickets and means spacing between seats is enforced. Groups who book together will sit together where possible, however last minute bookings may be subject to availability and changes if required by Tennis Australia. This year, there are only two seating categories, Upper Level or Lower Level, as illustrated by the seating plan (above). We have our ticket allocation and can advise section numbers when booking.

Tickets for Margaret Court Arena and John Cain Arena are available on request (subject to availability) and include access to corresponding zones in Melbourne Park (see page 42 of the brochure or below). MCA and JCA seating maps available on request.

Covid-19 changes and zoning

AO 2021 will be a historic event in many ways, here are the major changes due to Covid-19:

  • Dates have changed to 8-21 February 2021
  • No Grounds Passes are available
  • No finals will be held on outer courts
  • Rod Laver Arena now has two ticket categories, Upper Level or Lower Level
  • Arena seating capacity has reduced to 25%
  • Most dining and hospitality experiences are sold out (some may still be available on request)
  • Most finals tickets are sold out (some may still be available on request, or see our finals packages)
  • All Lower Level tickets come with a mandatory $100 digital gift card (up to three per person). This gift card can be used as a method of payment at food and beverage outlets in Melbourne Park, as well as at the merchandise shop. If upgrading four or more sessions, only three digital gift cards are required to be purchased, although more can be purchased on request
  • Melbourne Park has been split into three zones with each major arena the centre piece for that zone. Patrons can only access the zone which they have tickets for. This is to prevent unnecessary patron movement and to assist with easier and more accurate contact tracing as required by the State Government of Victoria

Guests will enjoy padded indoor and outdoor open-air seating, free-flow premium drinks, gourmet food served and replenished throughout the night and hosted service, ensuring all your needs are attended to. Guests will enter Melbourne Park through the VIP Corporate Hospitality entrance and have access to the Atrium Bar, a lovely atmospheric space for a drink before the action begins on Rod Laver Arena.

Your Superbox ticket acts as an entry ticket to Melbourne Park and Rod Laver Arena, an additional ticket is not required. The Superbox is limited to only 16 guests and is available for individuals, small groups or one group (subject to availability). Passes are transferrable per day if you wish for different guests to attend each day.
