Merlbourne Grand Prix Circuit

Australia has provided fans with various ways of getting to the track, so we have covered all available routes for you with the best local guides possible. Whether you are getting the train, bus or taxi Melbourne always provides a stunning opener to the season.

One of the easiest ways to get to the track is via tram. On race weekends trams are free for F1 fans so getting there should be a breeze! However nothing in life is free and unfortunately the tram will  naturally get very busy during those times as well. We recommend going extra early to the track and perhaps leaving as late as possible to avoid the crowds.

  • St Kilda road GP Shuttle is a tram service that runs between the city centre and St Kilda tram stop and in between it stops at the track. However from the city itself trams leave from Flinders Street train station on Swanston Street every 2 minutes at peaks hours. However this tram is probably best for accessing gates no. 5,8,9 and 10. These trams terminate at St Kilda.
  • Light Rail GP Express trams head to gates no. 1 & 2 from Spencer Street every 3 minutes during peaks hours throughout the weekend.
  • Gates 3 & 4 are covered with trams leaving from Collins Street and Spencer Street throughout the weekend.

Trains from Melbourne city leave from the main train station, Flinders Street Station which is situated in the corner with Swanston Street. 

On race days, trains from here are free just like their tram counterparts. There are plenty of stewards around to help F1 fans find their way around.

Travelling by public transport here will require you to purchase a myki card. This works like most transportation cards where by you load funds in and tap on your way in and out of public services for a charge. These cards can be topped up in train stations, or various shops throughout the city.

Taxis in Melbourne are cheaper than other big cities in Australia. Taxis here and plentiful and the government makes sure they are safe and well regulated. As per taxis go night fairs are slightly higher. However from city center to track you are looking at around $20 AUD, which isn't too bad. However expect a lot of traffic and delays and thus we recommend against this option.

If, however, you fancy a taxi nevertheless than have a look at Silvertop.
