Melbourne Sport and Beer Lovers Tour

‘Our tour with Tamara was excellent. The highlight of the tour was the Melbourne Cricket Ground and though we are American and know nothing about cricket, it was very interesting. Flemington Race Course is beautiful with its 15,000 rose bushes. The included lunch was very good (you could select from a large number of choices). Our tour ended with a tour of the Stomping Ground Brewery and a sampling of eight different craft beers.’

    This was made for a day with sports crazy mates. Not too over the top, just a great guide, great information and topped off with beer. Certainly a great way to spend some time with friends or family.

    Had so much fun on this tour. Went to all the major sporting grounds and got to hear the history of each one. Andrew was really accommodating and knowledgeable. We did have to do a last minute change for lunch, but that was all taken in stride and easily fixed. Would highly recommend this tour for any sport fan.

  • What You Can Expect

    If you’re a fan of beer and sport, this full-day Melbourne Sport and Beer Lovers Tour combines the best of both worlds! Visit some of the Victorian capital’s iconic sporting venues — including the mighty MCG — and enjoy an afternoon beer tasting at a renowned boutique brewery. What could be better?

    On this tour you can opt for the convenience of CBD hotel pick-up or meet your ‘sports guru’ guide at Federation Square. Your first stop is Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne’s inner west. Home to the world-renowned Melbourne Cup — the ‘race that stops a nation’ — you’ll visit the grandstand, finish line and exclusive members’ pavilion.

    The high-profile sports theme continues as you pass by the 2006 Commonwealth Games Athletes’ Village, and take a turn around the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix street circuit in Albert Park. You’ll also catch a glimpse of the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre.

    Next stop on this Melbourne Sport and Beer Lovers Tour is the famous Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), where you’ll have to make the tough choice between a behind-the-scenes tour of the ‘G’ or entry to the fascinating Australian Sports Museum. On the MCG tour you’ll visit the player change rooms, players’ balcony, Bill Lawry Cricket Centre and the Long Room. You’ll even have the opportunity to take a walk on the hallowed turf. If you opt to visit the Australian Sports Museum, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the amazing collection of sporting memorabilia.

    After a hearty pub-style lunch at Docklands Stadium, it’s time to head off to the Stomping Ground Brewery for an afternoon of all things beer. You’ll tour the brewhouse and learn about its production processes, before enjoying a tasting of the brewery’s range of exceptional craft beers.

    For lovers of beer and Australian sport, it really doesn’t get any better than this relaxed and informative Melbourne Sport and Beer Lovers Tour. Enjoy!
