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.
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.
