The Australian Open kicks off the Grand Slam tennis season in January, and plays out during the heat of the Melbourne summer.
Due to the rising temperatures, as the day wears on, much of the action takes place in the evening under lights which makes this event particularly enjoyable. The Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena and the Margaret Court Arena are all equipped with retractable roofs.
The 2018 event saw Roger Federer storm to an emotional Final win, taking home his 6th Australian Grand Slam title and which tallied his overall haul to 20. Melbourne is popular with tennis fans from all over the world, but it is the city's relaxed ambiance and feast of activities, cuisine and culture that draws them in.
