Sporting Hub

It's known colloquially as the sporting capital of the world, and even if you're not an avid spectator we think attending one of the many events on each weekend is a Melbourne must do

Aussie rules (AFL) is a religion in these parts and the best place to worship is the hallowed MCG, or locally referred to as simply "the gee". The contests are an amazing mix of colour and fervour and that's just the crowd. The good news is the locals enjoy the game in typical Aussie fashion - hard but fair, so it's suitable for all.

If you're here over summer then either the first tennis grand slam or the National sport of cricket will be the cities talking points.  Far from the stuffy drawn out games, the new hybrid cricket matches of T20 give the spectators more excitement packed into a short timeframe.

With options aplenty, your best chance of striking up a conversation with a native Melbournian is to mention the Footy, Formula 1, Golf or Basketball they love their sport and it’s a great way to understand what makes Australians tick and meet a few characters.
