Top 10 Reasons to Head Down Under!

Since many of our clients have told us: ˜I am going to the Australian Open one of these days” we thought we’d give you our Top 10 reasons why 2020 is the year to make it happen!
  1. The cost of air is down right now – in many cases, you can save over $500 from this past year’s air fare to Australia
  2. From the time you get off the plane and throughout Melbourne, there is an excitement and buzz in the air about the Australian Open. Unlike other Grand Slam venues, the stadium is right in the center of the city. Throughout the city, the Open is a main focus – watch it on mega screens in the middle of the city or walk along the Yarra River and see tennis themed bars and activities on the way to the stadium
  3. Melbourne Park not only hosts the Australian Open but has two other stadiums that hold over 100,000 people, Formula One tracks, and an excellent sports museum
  4. The Australian Open is the most fun party-like of the Grand Slams – bands, dancing, exhibits and plenty of food and drinks.  The Aussies are so friendly and know how to have fun in the Land Down Under!
  5. Watch the best tennis players in the world play on three retractable roof courts – Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena and the new neat Margaret Court Arena – plus 2 other show courts with a total of 25 courts.
  6. Melbourne has so much to see and do – it’s a very walk-able city plus has a fun tram for you to get around. Check out this 4 minute video on Melbourne.
  7. There will be a Mac Sports Travel host there to provide insider tips, escort you along the nice river walk to Melbourne Park, plus lots more –  play tennis, tours, dinners!
  8. Extend your stay to Sydney, Tasmania, the Great Barrier Reef, or even New Zealand!
  9. You’ll see kangaroos and wallabies and koala bears – pretty cool!
  10. Djokovic won in straight sets against Nadal last year – would be a great re-match!
