Discover discounts on the best sport activities and sport-lovers tours in Melbourne.

Sports-mad Melburnians will be the first to tell you their city is the Australian city for sport.

Home to the Melbourne Cup, The Ashes, Formula 1 Grand Prix and the Australian Moto GP – if you’re not lucky enough to be there during one of those big events, there’s bound to be something else on. Watch tennis, rugby, soccer, netball or basketball, see a game of Australian rules football (AFL) or catch a cricket match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) if you can. No wonder Melbourne ranks officially as one of the world’s sports capitals.

Visitors to Melbourne can learn all about the city’s sporting history on an organised or self-guided sports tour. And there are also plenty of activities for you to try, both in the water and on dry land.

Water sports in Melbourne

Melbourne may be famous for team sports but don’t forget how much water there is to enjoy. Go yachting or kayaking around Port Phillip bay, or try your hand at jet skiing, windsurfing or kiteboarding from St Kilda Beach.

Kayaking, rafting and stand up paddle-boarding lessons and equipment rental can be found along the Yarra River. Snorkelling and scuba divings tours are also popular on the Mornington Peninsula, or you can learn to surf along the Great Ocean Road. For something more thrilling, there’s even shark diving at Sea Life Aquarium.
