Event Date(s): Sun Mar 25, 2018 - Tue Mar 27, 2018

This 2018 world class event represents a completely new and exciting era for The Grand Prix & Formula 1! 

With new rules, new cars and of course new tyres – result in much faster cars and old track records that are believed to be broken. Best of all the world will see it all first in Melbourne! 

It is forecasted that during the 2017 Melbourne Grand Prix, the playing field will be levelled, with Mercedes genuinely being challenged for the first time in 3 years. It is also exciting to see Daniel Ricciardo coming off an excellent season and forming an exciting Red Bull combination with Max Verstappen! This Grand Prix is definitely one to not be missed with the world’s absolute best drivers racing it out in Melbourne once again!

 

 

Transport in Melbourne

International flights arrive at Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport, 22 kilometres north-west of the city. A taxi from there to the city centre is inexpensive.  Melbourne’s parks, beaches, and open spaces make it pleasurable city to walk around. Everything is quite spread out, but the city’s cheap and convenient tram system makes getting about easy. There are several stops near the Albert Park circuit, which is two kilometres south of the city centre. If hiring a car, don’t forget to pay the automatic motorway toll, and have plenty of coins handy as most inner city parking is metered.

 

Where to go?

There’s something for everyone in Melbourne, as you’d expect from a city known for being the arts, culinary and sporting capital of Australia. To name just a few daytime attractions: the Aquarium, the old Gaol, Melbourne Zoo, Melbourne Cricket Ground, the Ian Potter Centre and Chinatown. In the evenings, don’t book early for dinner. Melbourne’s bustling nightlife doesn’t kick off until around 9pm and partiers don’t go clubbing until gone midnight – unless you suffer from claustrophobia and like an empty dance floor…

Enthusiasts only

Phillip Island, home of the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix is 140 kilometres south-east of Melbourne. The bikers are often testing at around the time of the Formula One Grand Prix, so you might get to see some action. For those in search of some Grand Prix nostalgia, go to Adelaide and drive the old Grand Prix track, which hosted the Australian race from 1985 to 1995.  

This world-class event is the ultimate in corporate entertainment, known for luxury, glamour, fashion, fine dining and thrilling action both on and off the track.

With a wide range of hospitality packages available, this is the one event where you can treat your guests to an unforgettable experience. Or impress them even more with Private Suite options tailored just for you. 

In 1996 Melbourne held the first round of the world championship. Until 2005 the race had always been the season-opener, but that changed for 2006 due to the Commonwealth Games being staged in Melbourne until mid-March.

Melbourne is Australia’s second-largest city, one of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan on earth, with plenty to do both day and night. The climate in late summer is perfect, the people are friendly and, to top it all, the Grand Prix is one of the most well organised of the year, and has become very popular with drivers and fans alike, and the party atmosphere of Melbourne keeps them coming back year after year.   “Melburnians are sports-mad,” says local hero Mark Webber. “The climate allows for a very outdoor lifestyle, so people are always doing something.”
“You’re totally spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants, so you could spend the whole time eating if you wanted,” adds Webber. “I take a look at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and tootle down the Great Ocean Road, which is an easy drive away.”

 

Circuit Info

The Formula One Australian Grand Prix is set in beautiful surroundings with artificial lakes to the south of the city, circuiting over roadways through cricket fields, combining high-, medium- and low-speed corners, a couple of chicanes and several overtaking areas in braking zones.

 

 

Circuit address

Albert Park , 220 Albert Road, South Melbourne 

Victoria 3205, Australia

 

Useful tips

Set in mown parkland, the circuit is easy to walk around. That makes general admission an appealing ticket to have on race day. But there are lots of grandstands too, particularly at the beginning and end of the lap, divided into three basic ticket prices. Remember to take sun cream and a hat. Even in March, the days are long and the rays are strong.

In the evenings, don’t book early for dinner. Melbourne’s bustling nightlife doesn’t kick off until around 9pm and doesn’t go clubbing until midnight – unless you suffer from claustrophobia and like an empty dance floor…


We can assist you in booking tickets, flights, hotels, transfers, sightseeing or any tailor-made packages locally, or to other destinations in Australia. A trip to Sydney is highly recommended for overseas visitors.
