Australia’s heart of sports and entertainment.
Melbourne & Olympic Parks (M&OP) is home to eight national, elite sporting teams and welcomes millions of visitors annually.
It plays host to hundreds of events each year, ranging from game day matches to grand finals, and from intimate occasions to epic arena spectaculars.
The precinct is notably acclaimed for hosting the Australian Open, a range of sporting codes, as well as the highest calibre of international acts and musicians, including Elton John, Queen, P!NK, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, The Rolling Stones, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Bruce Springsteen.
A phenomenal $972 million-dollar Melbourne Park Redevelopment has recently been completed by the Victorian Government to cater for the precinct’s growing popularity and enhance Victoria’s sport and entertainment for generations to come.
The precinct is home to six of Melbourne’s premier venues; Rod Laver Arena, Margaret Court Arena, John Cain Arena, AAMI Park, CENTREPIECE at Melbourne Park and Kia Arena.
The unrivalled location is situated between Melbourne’s CBD and Botanic Gardens, bound by the Yarra River. Comprising around 40 hectares, as the name suggests, it joins together the exceptionally unique premises of Melbourne Park and Olympic Park.
It’s a place where lasting memories are made and legendary matches are played.
Melbourne & Olympic Parks acknowledges the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation as Traditional Owners of the land on which the precinct is located and recognise their ongoing connection to this land, and rich culture. We pay respects to their Elders past, present and future.
The land that now hosts the precinct has been a gathering place for generations.
The Trust was established on 5 October 1995 in accordance with the provisions of the Melbourne & Olympic Parks Act 1985 (as amended).
