What To Expect

Get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the famous athletic venues in sports-mad Melbourne! Meet your friendly, knowledgeable guide at Federation Square in the morning and hop aboard a comfortable coach to begin your action-packed day.

Make your way to Flemington Racecourse, where you’ll walk on the grassy track of the hoof-pounding Melbourne Cup. Tour the residential village built for the 2006 Commonwealth Games, which was crafted to the highest standards of urban design and equipped to house up to 6,000 athletes and officials. When hunger strikes, head to Docklands for lunch near Etihad Stadium, home of the Australian Football League.

Continue on to Albert Park, where you’ll have a chance to drive a lap around the F1 Grand Prix circuit. Visit the world-class facilities of the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre to see where local athletes train, and take a behind-the-scenes tour of either the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) or the National Sports Museum (make your selection at the time of booking).

Take a tour of the Stomping Ground Brewery. All tours and tastings are Cicerone-led, which is a fancy way to say that your guides are some of the most passionate and knowledgeable beer drinkers around. Groups are shown through the 20-hectolitre brewery, guided through the brewing process and given the chance to taste a wide variety of beer styles. Whether you're new to craft beer or an old pro, the Stomping Ground tasting experience is not to be missed.

The tour concludes with complimentary samples of 6 of Stomping Ground's finest.

Was ok but not fantastic except for Anthony which made it very interesting and gave extra information on route to the venues. We were lucky to meet two ofthe Indian cricket players whilst touring the G. as 20 20 Bash was that week which I had a ticket for.

Vicki V, July 2014
What a wonderful tour. Far better and longer than we expected. Anthony was friendly and knowledgeable in all areas sport. The MCG tour was very interesting, Flemington was larger than expected and the Carlton Brewery tour was very informative. Anyone with only a slight interest in sport would find this day out a real treat.

Really enjoyable, the guide was really knowledgable and there was plenty of good banter as well. Plus we got a bonus tour of the Etihad stadium thanks to our guide and his contacts. As a sports fan was a thoroughly enjoyable day.

Ann B, Dec 2012
I bought this tour as a birthday present for my husband and didn't particularly expect to enjoy it myself but it was a briliant day out. We were a small group and were picked up in a great little bus and were taken to various sporting locations by a lovely guide who really knew his stuff. Not only did he have a wealth of sporting knowledge he also pointed out places of interest around and about Melbourne which we may never have seen without his knowledge. The guide was friendly and managed to get all the participants on the tour to gel together and ensured we all had a great time. We were given plenty of time to look around the venues and had a relaxed lunch which was included in the tour. I would recommend this tour as a really enjoyable day out for everyone, sports fan or not.

chezzadel, Aug 2012
This was a very good tour the only problem we had was we didn't actually get to see Rod Laver Arena. Flemmington was really good and now i want to go a see a race especially The Melbourne Cup. The best part was the brewey tour. I would definitely recommend this tour well worth the effort.

As I have had tours to other Brewery.. This was not working (maintance) so I could imagaine .. others were disapointed .. overall .. new guide .. not working plant

Alexander R, Oct 2011
Friendly and knowledgeable guide. Different tour guide for the MCG (an MCG member veteran) who gave some dodgy facts about MCG, but other than that all the information seemed correct. Brewery was interesting to see the bottling process and learn a bit more about some of Australia's flagship brands. Does exactly what this tour says on the tin - Good tour for people who like sport and beer!

Matthew J, May 2011
Sports part of the trip was excellent, especially the MCG and Flemington. Guide was very knowledgeable, Melbourne is the paradise for a sport supporter, anything sport related is highly thought of here. On the down side, make sure the brewery is actually running before you book this add on, as it was not when we went ( on Fridays) which made it a bit pointless. In general though a very good tour, probably better to do the Sports Hall of Fame in the afternoon after lunch though.

Lesley R, Jan 2011
This was excellent and extremely well organised. A small 12 seater coach meant that the tour was more intimate and gave us the opportunity to chat with fellow travellers. The guide was very efficient and knowledgeable.

Alex D, June 2010
Tour guide and driver was excellent. Well informed and very helpful in every way. Tour of MCG was excellent and professionally conducted. We enjoyed our day out.
