Overview

Melbourne & Olympic Parks

Australia's heart of sports and entertainment.

Welcoming more than 2.5 million people across hundreds of events annually, Melbourne & Olympic Parks (M&OP) has long been the home of the most iconic and world-class event experiences Australia has to offer.

The precinct is notably acclaimed for hosting the Australian Open, as well as the city's most celebrated sport and entertainment events.

M&OP is the proud host of a range of sporting events, including tennis, football, rugby league, rugby union, basketball, netball, cycling and gymnastics, while also staging 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.

This is the place where Australians and visitors alike make memories of a lifetime.

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.

Charity and community are truly an important focus in our guardianship of this special precinct.

We endeavour to maximise the opportunities we can provide to the people of Victoria by partnering with charities and community groups.

A phenomenal $972 million dollar Melbourne Park Redevelopment is currently being carried out by the Victorian Government, to cater for the precinct’s growing popularity and enhance Victoria’s sport and entertainment for generations to come.

The Melbourne & Olympic Parks Trust acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land and pays respect to their Elders, past and emerging.

Melbourne & Olympic Parks Trust

The Melbourne & Olympic Parks Trust was established on 5 October 1995 in accordance with the provisions of the Melbourne & Olympic Parks Act 1985 (as amended).

It was created by the merger of the National Tennis Centre Trust (established 13 November 1985) and the Olympic Park Committee of Management (formed originally in 1909).

Under the Act, the relevant Minister is the Honourable Martin Pakula MP, Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events.
