The Australian Open is returning with all the biggest names and tennis moments that make it an absolute must-see event - and you can be there to see all the action!

In 2021, the AO has a new game plan to ensure the safety of everyone onsite.

As part of this focus, the Melbourne Park precinct will be subdivided into three zones, each including one of our three major arenas.

Each zone offers its own unique combination of live experiences, food and beverage and tennis action.


Event Dates: Monday, February 8 - Monday, February 15, 2021 (John Cain Arena)

Sessions: From 11:00am (Day) & 7:00pm (Night)

Tickets: On sale via Ticketmaster

Conditions of Entry: Guests should read and understand our Conditions of Entry prior to booking tickets and attending the event. John Cain Arena no longer offers cloaking so any prohibited items will need to be disposed of or returned to your vehicle prior to entry.

Bag Restrictions: Backpacks of any size or type are no longer permitted into John Cain Arena. All other bags must be A4 in size or smaller. This applies to handbags that can be worn as a backpack.

Parking: The Eastern Plaza Car Park (opposite AAMI Park) is closed from Monday, January 11 - Wednesday, February 24. Alternative parking options can be found here.

Public Transport: John Cain Arena is accessible by tram, train and bus. The arena is walking distance from Richmond Station and Flinders Street Station.


We've made some changes to the venue to keep you safe and you can help us by following the guidelines below.

  • Masks are required on concourses and in queues, all indoor areas and outside where physical distancing is not possible.
  • Guests will need to check-in upon arrival using any of the internal or external QR codes displayed around the venue. (Android users must download the Service Victoria app)
  • The venue is separated into zones. Your ticket is specific to a zone and travel between zones is not permitted after entry.
  • All tickets are reserved row, flexible seats. Groups are to leave a two-seat gap between parties. Be mindful that other guests may be sitting in front of and behind you. Guests must only sit in the aisle and row allocated to them.
