Happy 10th Birthday Melbourne Sports Tours - January 4th, 2014

Hip Hip Hooray...ten years ago today, Kirsty & Anthony Grace launched Melbourne Sports Tours first tour.

Our team in the office and on tour are all fanatical about sport and we consider ourselves so lucky to be working in an industry we love, in the best city in the world!

324225SPORTS LOVERS TOURS OF MELBOURNE This unique small group city sightseeing journey was the first tour launched. Melbourne is one of the few cities in the world where you can visit so many world class sports arenas/venues within a 6 kilometre radius of the CBD. As a former push bike courier and Transport Manager, Anthony knew the city inside and out and designed a variety of half and full day options allowing for all sporting interests.

AUSTRALIAN RULES FOOTBALL with Local Host The inspiration for this experience was realised while Kirsty was being hosted by Tourism Victoria at an Anaheim Angels baseball game in the US. She had a 'lightbulb' moment; "Why isn't anyone introducing tourists to our fantastic brand of football, AFL?" Melbourne Sports Tours hosts explain all the rules, bumps and bruises of our unique game in best seats in the house! Wrap yourself in a scarf, enjoy a meat pie and join in the fanatical love affair with our unique brand of football "Aussie Rules".

HORSES, WINE & BEER TOUR Melbourne Sports Tours have offered various regional tours over the past 10 years incorporating surf lessons and wildlife. This tour has been the most successful of all and is in now included in many Cruise and Conference itineraries. Relax and let our tour host drive while you enjoy the view and a few...Meet famous horses and enjoy morning tea in the Racing Museum/Homestead at 'Living Legends'; a retirement village for our favorite retired racehorses. Enjoy lunch & wine tastings at Gisborne Peak and beer tastings at Holgate's in Woodend.

MELBOURNE OUTLET SHOPPING TOURS In 2010, realising demand for a Melbourne shopping tour company, the team at Melbourne Sports Tours decided to launch Melbourne Outlet Shopping Tours. Shopping is a sport for many and provides a His'N'Hers service for many agents and individuals.

Melbourne Sports Tours have been delighted to host numerous travel journalists and travel shows over the past ten years including Catriona Rowntree, Jules Lund, Coxy and Tom Williams to name a few. We look forward to doing more over the next 10 years.

Anyone who loves sport will love Melbourne Sports Tours. Those who don't love sport but join their partner on tour are always pleasantly surprised at how fun, interactive and educational Melbourne Sports Tours are.

65% of Melbourne Sports Tour guests are men but it's definitely not a 'blokey' tour.

20% are local Melburnians many of whom are given gift vouchers, 30% interstate, 20% NZ, 15% UK, 10% Nth America We'd like to thank all of our fabulous staff and families over the past ten year for their assistance and enthusiasm as well as our industry partners and venues who have supported us including, in no particular order; The MCG, National Sports Museum, Flemington Racecourse, Etihad Stadium, Eureka SkyDeck, Carlton & United BrewHouse, Living Legends, Gisborne Peak, Holgate Brewery, The AFL. 

Thank you also to the tourism industry including Tourism Victoria, Tourism Australia, VTIC, Destination Melbourne, Les Clefs d'Or and concierge industry, and so many more...
