We all know that one person who, having been to the Australian Open once, just keeps on going back each year (“if you’d been, you’d understand why” is the kind of thing they sniff when you ask). Melbourne is brilliant year round, as we all know (just re-read #20), but being in town during the Open adds an extra layer to the experience, especially during those days you’ve got tickets into the stadium. For best results, book a hotel that lets you combine the best of Melbourne night life with daily walks to and from the Yarra-side Melbourne Park. We like: The Lindrum, Adelphi Hotel and The Westin.
