The Formula One season begins in earnest at the Albert Park circuit, a track famous for its high-octane thrills and distinctive atmosphere. Situated a short jaunt from Melbourne city centre, Albert Park is the ideal starting point for the racing calendar to roar into life.
The scenic parkland setting is the perfect temper for a course with a series of over-taking zones, medium-high speed corners, and a reputation for white-knuckle drama. The charming city centre, filled with nightclubs, great restaurants, and hotels, is also just a short drive away so you are never going to be far away from the goings-on.
The Paddock Club in Australia offers the most luxurious package to take in the opening 58 laps of the season, with the finest hospitality in world motor sport. Situated on top of the F1 garages, you have the most expansive view of the track and VIP access to the pit lane. Formula One is about more than just a race; sample the unending flow of premium champagne, gourmet dining, and VIP pit-lane walks as standard with the F1 Paddock Club Melbourne.
We have an additional range of hospitality options which offer supreme value, with the Chicane Pavilion affording panoramic views of the infamous first corner: the annual scene of high-speed crashes and audacious overtakes. A delicious choice of buffet dining, an open bar, and pit lane tours complete our superlative Melbourne GP hospitality package.
Our favourite hotel is the Park Hyatt along with Crown Towers, two 5-star establishments offering the best accommodation in Melbourne. Both are centrally located, with the Park Hyatt offering luxury swimming and spa facilities, tennis lessons, and art-deco inspired restaurants. The Crown Towers also has the almost unheard of benefit of offering designer shopping from a range of brands, all under one roof. If you’re worried about transfers then rest assured Edge Global offers a full range of transport options, including helicopters, to and from the circuit.
Melbourne is a thoroughly modern city, with a creative heart and wild party scene. There are numerous restaurants with fine-dining and a thriving variety of ethnic food, resultant of the eclectic melting-pot of cultures that make the city unique. With such a beautiful city as your playground and so much do and see, Grand Prix Hospitality in Australia offers far more than just the best service on race day.
