Get all the on-court action at the 2024 Australian Open


Time Out says

Every year, thousands head to Melbourne Park to watch the superstars of tennis battle it out in the fierce summer heat. Despite the heatwaves that occur regularly during the event (temperatures of 35 degrees or higher are common) the Australian Open continues to attract the world's best tennis players and their fans to the southern hemisphere's only Grand Slam tournament.

And even if you don’t make it into an arena, there will be live entertainment, giant screens, incredible drinking and dining options, and pop-up activations to enjoy. The AO Finals Festival will also return, with legendary international acts like Groove Armada and Rudimental, plus local legends Peach PRC, DMA's, the Jungle Giants, Tash Sultana and more on the line-up.

The 2024 tournament begins on Sunday, January 14. Day and night sessions are available, and adult ground pass tickets start at $59. Best to book your tickets sooner rather than later – head to the website for more information.
