You can check out all your favourite players here as well.

AO Ballpark

When you’re not enjoying the live matches, the AO Ballpark presented by Emirates will keep the whole family entertained for hours. It will be open daily offering live stage shows, obstacle courses, climbing walls, as well as the ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Zone for the little ones to try out their tennis skills!

AO Hilltop

A first this year, the Hilltop at Birrarung Marr is where you can enjoy the Australian Open from a new height. There will be a SkyFlyer attraction that’s 35 metres tall, making it the best vantage point of the whole event! This is perfect for groups who want to sit back and relax to good food, excellent vibes, and even enjoy a daily movie on the big screen available. The Hilltop will be free to enter but you will need a ticket for the attractions, which can be found here.

AO Live Stage

It’s the perfect place to soak up the Australian summer while listening to your favourite Australian and international artists. The Australian Open 2020 will kick off on the 19th of January with a special concert dedicated to raising money for the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal. Jessica Mauboy will be headlining alongside Montaigne and Lily Papas. You can grab your tickets here.

Can’t make that concert? There is an impressive line-up of artists gracing the stage in the remaining weeks. Notable names include Cub Sport, Thelma Plum, Lime Cordiale, The Veronicas, and Matt Corby. You may also be interested in UK legends Bastille and Billy Idol as well!
