I am a world traveller & a mom of two, (8 & 6). I love to meet people, and am fascinated that there are 7 billion stories out there to be explored. I think Melbourne is the most happening city to live in with all the fun activities around town.
To speed or not to speed, that is not the question
You say FORMULA 1 Grand Prix, and see people roar with excitement as a general reaction. And why not. The world's fastest cars, with the most modern technology, driven by world-reknowned celebrities take will definitely rock the house down. The Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix will be held from 12 March to 15 March 2015 at the Albert Park circuit. Gates will open every day at 10:30am and close at 8pm.
There are several options for tickets ranging from corporate to general admissions. The general admission tickets are available for purchase on special discounted rates till 1 March 2015.
The most special thing about the Australian Grand Prix is that it is the first event on the Formula 1 calendar for the year, after which the Grand Prix will travel around the globe to 20 more countries.
The four day event offers a different experience on each day. There is something for everyone in the family, including kids at the Kids Zone, where Disney activities await the youngsters among other types of entertainment. Cars on display at the V8 Village will include Porsche, Jaguar and Infiniti.
Starting on Thursday, 12th March, this is the day all motor sports fans will be attending to meet their favourite Formula 1 drivers up close and personal, and perhaps even get their autographs. On the circuit, there will be qualifying rounds. (General admission from $39**).
On Friday, 13th March, the V8 cars will invade the tracks, as they roar and burn the tracks down. This day guarantees to get the adrenalin pumping with serious entertainment on and off the tracks in the entertainment zones. (General admission from $55**).
Saturday 14th March is the day filled with action pack adventure on the circuit. Entertainment offers death defying stunts among other performances. (General admission from $70**).
Sunday 15th March is the decider as drivers compete for the top spot and race to the finish line to gain the glory in front of massive crowds. (General admission from $79**).
For the best experience, be prepared to face long queues at the entrance and exit gates. Security will check bags so carry only what is necessary. Public transport is the best option to travel. If you have an avid fan in the family or your circle of friends, makes for a great gift.
