The Australian Open, affectionately called the “Aussie Open”, is the first major of the year in the Grand Slam of tennis, followed by the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open.
Some form of the tournament dates all the way back to 1905, and since 1988 the Open has played on a hard court surface, when the entire complex was moved to the new Melbourne Park. The primary court is Rod Laver Arena, followed by Hisense Arena and Margaret Court. In 2015 the Australian Open offered a record prize total of AUD $36.3 million.
Attendance at the Aussie is quite high, second to only the US Open of any tournament played annually, making jet charter flights to Melbourne quite popular during this time of the year. Reserving your plane now gives you the best chance of securing the best aircraft for your itinerary.
Though it has been rarely used, one unique feature of the Australian is the extreme heat policy in case the temperature reaches too high a mark for the players to safely continue. This is due of course to the fact that January is actually summertime down south, and some stretches of Australia can see some pretty blistering heat. But the major courts each has a roof that can closed in such a case; only the outer courts – typically featuring the lesser matches after the first week of play – are the ones affected.
In addition to the sporting event, for many this once-in-a-lifetime visit to Australia has so many other things to offer the traveler. Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane all have long “to-do” lists. A visit to the Sydney Opera House is on it for many, being one of the most recognizable buildings in the world. The Great Barrier Reef is also just off the coast for an unbelievable scuba or snorkeling adventure, or simply enjoy a tour from the comfort of the boat.
