Australian Open - Plans, Photos and Tickets

Grand Slam Ticket Fan Giveaways!

Want to watch the pros at the Aussie Open up close and visit Melbourne?

Middle weekend public tickets have been "exhausted" or SOLD OUT already.

Fan Warning: DO NOT buy tickets at the AO Box Office the day of the match - get them online.

Personal bad experience with Ticket Office:
They will sell you a very poor seat selection, claim it is the "only available" one and then overcharge you, especially if you are an international fan.

This happened to me at their main box office for a Margret Court match as I wanted to see Osaka. The cashier even told me to try to resell my ticket on Ticketek - which is impossible after the session starts. Buy them online the night before once you know the Order of Play.

I had a "big camera" but the 200mm is allowed which they ask you a lot of questions but have few real answers, mostly vague guesses - hint: they aren't trained properly and cannot be reliable for any info including the practice schedule which was completely bogus this year.

Melbourne is a great city to visit and escape the cold winter in the Northern Hemisphere.

Their "Labor Day" or "Australia Day" happens at the end of their summer and usually occurs around the end of the tournament (late January).

It is cheapest to fly direct from NYC or LA, but it is worth the long flight.

So much to see in Victoria and Australia, I did a layover in Sydney - hope you can come join in the fun with us.

Also, if you can tie it into a longer layover such as a pit stop in Sydney or Fiji - all the better. I recommend getting a cheap flight to Asia, from there flights will be much cheaper than going directly from the USA.

Known as the "Fun Slam" or "Asian Slam" - it's also the Pacific Slam.

These were some fellow American (North and South American) tennis fans who loved the sport but were stuck outside with no more tickets left, so we wanted to give them a chance to see some great tennis.

You can also upgrade them to a seat at Laver or Melbourne Arena for a small fee.
