Melbourne gets set for four days of breathtaking action as the world's fastest drivers and cars light up the Albert Park circuit at the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix in March. The Australian Grand Prix is the opening race of the Formula 1 season.

Here, against the backdrop of Melbourne’s skyline, the world’s top racing car drivers show off their cutting-edge cars and lightning-speed teamwork. Watch them zoom past you at speeds of up to 300km an hour. The distinctive pitch of the elite Formula One racing cars can be heard across the city.

Along with Formula One, the Grand Prix also hosts six other first-class race categories. See a showdown between Australia’s V8 Supercars or check out luxury models such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche and Lotus burn rubber on the track.

The off-track action is just as exciting with live music and entertainment, demonstrations, exhibitions and aerial displays by the Royal Australian Air Force.

The Australian Grand Prix is a must-see for racing enthusiasts, but during March, Melbourne also celebrates many other aspects of its culture through some major international events. Spend a fortnight wining and dining with celebrity chefs at the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. See Australia’s best designers at the week-long Melbourne Fashion Festival. Laugh out loud at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Wander amongst the richly-coloured autumn gardens and vibrant flowers at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show.
