The Australian Open has long been a fixture of Melbourne summers. Whether it’s the sound of matches drifting from the television through the house as we stay up late on a hot night to watch the finals action, or getting into the grounds themselves and soaking up the party atmosphere, the event has become a signature presence in Melbournians lives.

In partnership with Piper-Heidsieck, the official Champagne of the Australian Open, we’re giving you and a friend the chance to experience this rite of passage up close.
