Melbourne Sports Tours

With over 19 professional sporting franchises what better place to take your students than the sporting capital of Australia. With a centralised sporting precinct, within walking distance of the city’s main attraction, your students will not be disappointed!

Off the field or court, take your students to tour behind the scenes of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). You’ll have the opportunity to walk through the player centres and exclusive member areas. Smell the heat rub in the change rooms and walk on the turf that has seen so much sporting history.

The Australian National Sports Museum at the MCG is a must see for all touring groups. From touch screens and avatars, to climbable walls and sporting challenges, visitors get to be part of the action and discover the unique stories of Australian sport. Celebrating sport in Australia, the museum has an incredible collection of historic artifacts from some of the great moments in the story of sport, places to learn about the greats of our most popular games, fun interactive activities.

There are exhibits for sports such as cricket, Australian rules football, tennis, rugby league, rugby union, soccer, basketball, boxing, netball and the Olympic Games. The Australian Sports Hall of Fame is also located within the museum along with the Australian Racing Museum and the Melbourne Cricket Club Museum. There’s something for everyone!

Melbourne is arguably Australia’s ‘Sporting’ and ‘culture’ capital of Australia, so it would be impossible to avoid Melbourne’s vibrant cultural atmosphere. On a city tour your students will be taken off the beaten track to explore the iconic landmarks, colourful laneways, arcades, street art, parks and history. They will be captured by stories, history and experience the local side to Melbourne – learning how Melbourne became the cultural capital it is today!

Reward your team to a trip to Melbourne’s coastal suburbs where your touring group can have some time to reflect on your effort on the field. See the charming and iconic bathing boxes at Brighton Beach, take a ride at Melbourne’s historic amusement park located on the foreshore, Luna Park, or wait until sunset at St Kilda Beach and you might see the fairy penguins near the pier.

If you’re looking to extend your tour, consider a trip along Victoria’s Surf Coast, the Great Ocean Road. A beautiful drive, just west of Melbourne, will reward you with highlights such as the The 12 Apostles (perhaps the most iconic and memorable sight on Australia’s Great Ocean Road), the Otway National Park and Loch Ard.
