2014 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix

LoadingAdd to itinerary

Victoria is host to the most prestigious motor racing event in the country – the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix. From March 13-16 the fastest cars in the world again converge onto the picturesque Albert Park Lake in Melbourne, bringing with them all the glamour and growl of the amazing F1 racing championship. It is a four-day event with the main race on the final day. There’s the old faves Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton and young guns the likes of none other than the man who replaced Mark Webber after he announced his retirement from Formula 1, in 24-year-old Daniel Ricciardo who joins Vettel in the Red Bull seat. It is a huge event for the city, with support entertainment that includes great live music, this year with an Australian flavour (Bernard Fanning, Hoodoo Gurus) plus skateboarding legend Tony Hawk drops in to lay down some sneaky tricks… and there’s the always intense fighter jet aerial display. Sunday Early-bird tickets are available from $79 but you’ll need to secure your General Admission tickets before Saturday 1 March to take advantage of the early bird prices! Heading to the event from out of town? Check out these great Melbourne hotels to see what availability is around… stay tuned…
