Fabulous day,visiting Flemington Race Course,MCG, The National Sports Museum, Grande Prix track, Commonwealth games village and lunch at Etihad Stadium. A small group of 10 on a small bus was definitely the best option. One of my friends on the tour was not sport inspired,but was really impressed with this tour. I would highly recommend very,very interesting. Do yourself a favour and experience the wonderful Melbourne sporting culture. Great day out,9am to 4pm,with lunch included..thankyou to channel 7 canteen at Etihad Stadium...a very generous,lovely lunch.
