Park Pass – General entry
Schumacher Grandstand –
Located between Albert Park’s final two corners, the Schumacher Grandstand provides some of the best views of Turn-13, a corner that saw Valtteri Bottas able to find a gap and move past Pierre Gasly in the 2022 race after it was widened by 3.5m to make it more difficult for lead cars to defend their position. With the entry to Pit Lane directly across from you and a super-screen broadcasting all the action live, you’ll be able to live the action from all around the track without having to leave your seat.
Ricciardo Grandstand –
Back in its 2022 location due to popular demand, with the addition of premium undercover seating options, the Ricciardo Grandstand is situated on the infield between Turns 3 & 4, with views over one of the most technically challenging sections of the Albert Park Circuit. With the widened Turn-3 set to be one of the circuit’s key overtaking opportunities once again, seats in the Ricciardo Grandstand are once again set to be some of the most in-demand tickets of the 2023 race. Best accessed via Gate 2, the Ricciardo Grandstand provides super-screen viewing and is only a short walk from M-Lane, the cultural centre of the Australian Grand Prix and the home of our Sessions Stage.

Directions to Albert Park Lake (Albert Park) with public transport from central Melbourne.
The following transport lines have routes that pass near Albert Park Lake. Please click for further details.
Getting from A to B in Melbourne is usually easy and comfortable. Some routes get a bit congested over the Grand Prix weekend and at peak times of the day.
To travel anywhere in Melbourne on regular buses, tram or trains you’ll first need to get a Myki card and top it up. You then just touch on and touch off when entering and exiting a vehicle and the money will be automatically deducted from your balance.
Exceptions to this are trams to and from Albert Park for the Grand Prix which is free for F1 ticket holders, and the trams in the tram free zone which, you guessed it, are free.
Trips lasting no longer than 2 hours cost AU$4.60 in zone 1 and AU$3.10 for zone 2. For journey’s that start in one zone and finish in another the fare will be the same as just zone 1. Normally you won’t need to touch when you change between buses, trams, etc. but if you think your journey will be longer than 2 hours your should.
Myki cards cost AU$6 (AU$3 for children and Australian seniors) and are available all over Melbourne from the Skybus terminal, convenience stores and newspaper stands all over the city, as well as station vending machines and ticket booths. If you’re already in Australia you can buy a Myki card online in advance and have it mailed to you.
Public Transport Victoria (PTV) is the transport authority responsible for public transport including trains, trams and buses in Melbourne and the state of Victoria. Their website has detailed info on transport in the city including timetables, fares, routes and information on how to use and top up your Myki card.
For F1 fans staying outside of the city centre during the Grand Prix weekend, you might find yourself making use of Melbourne’s Metro train network. These services are frequent for the most part, but allow some extra travel time over peak periods and on the day of the Grand Prix on lines going to and from the centre.
Thanks to the extensive tram network most visitors to the Grand Prix will rarely need to use buses. Travelling to and from the airport though, it can save you a bit of money to book tickets on a shuttle bus or use a local bus with your Myki card.
..for the Airport
The cheapest option from Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport to the city centre (and the slowest) are regular city buses. Grab a Myki card and top up first then hop on route 478, 482 or 901 departing from the transport hub at terminal 4. Expect the trip to the CBD to take just over an hour in clear traffic.
Shuttle bus services by Skybus offer a nice balance of convenience and affordability. From Melbourne Tullamarine the Melbourne City Express runs every 15 minutes, from 4.30am to midnight. Buses reach the CBD in about a 30 minutes and terminate at Southern Cross Station. From here you can take a taxi/Uber, tram, local bus or walk to your hotel. Tickets cost AU$19.75 for adults and are available from the Skybus booth at terminals 1, 3 and 4.
There are other routes to Southbank Docklands, St Kilda, Geelong, Mornington Peninsula the Western suburbs, as well as services to and from Avalon Airport. A full list of services and schedules can be found here.
Taxi and Uber
Taxis in Melbourne are quite expensive with fares starting at AU$4.20 and an additional AU$1.62 per kilometre thereafter. Fares are more expensive between 5pm and 9am and more expensive again between 10pm and 4am. Don’t be perturbed if you’re asked to pay your fare in advance. This is normal after 10pm and the difference will be refunded to you on arrival at your destination.
Uber is also active in Melbourne and can work out a bit cheaper than taxis.
If you’re a first time Uber user, F1S readers can get €10 off their first ride when signing up.
..for the airport
From Melbourne Airport you’ll pay about AU$65 (including the airport surcharge) for a taxi to the city centre and will take about 30 minutes depending on traffic. An Uber will cost about AU$50 – 60. From Avalon Airport, expect a minimum of AU$120 for a taxi or AU$80 for Uber.
..for the Grand Prix
If you want an alternative to the sardine can on wheels that is the post-race tram, the best way to beat a hasty retreat when leaving the Grand Prix circuit is to take a taxi or Uber.
Uber have partnered with event organisers and there is an official UberZONE at Gates 1 and 2 (on Canterbury Road), Gates 3 and 5 (on Albert Road), Gate 8 (on St Kilda Road) and Gate 10 (on Fitzroy Street). Here, staff will help you get a ride.
Taxi ranks can be found at Gates 1 and 2 (on Canterbury Road), Gates 3 and 5 (on Albert Road), Gate 8 (on St Kilda Road) and Gate 10 (on Fitzroy Street).
The tram system is the most quintessentially Melbourne way to get around town and by far the most popular way for F1 fans to get to the Grand Prix.
Tram services in Melbourne’s city centre are always free to use making it more easily traversable for tourists. You can feel free to hop on and off any tram in this area and keep your Myki card in your pocket as long as your journey starts and finishes in that zone. For real-time updates on tram schedules use tramTRACKER on the web or download the app.
