The traditional season opener since 1996 the Australian Grand Prix is already exciting enough when the teams arrive there after the winter but this fantastic circuit always delivers great races even on the two occasions it didn’t start the season off.

 

As for Melbourne if you are coming all the way to Australia then you should stay around for a week or two at least and Melbourne is a great holiday destination anyway with great facilities and attractions, and great weather usually even in late summer when the race takes place, with the exception of 2010 perhaps.
