Australian Rules Football at the MCG stadium, Melbourne
Australians aren’t just passionate about sport, they’re completely obsessed with it. And 2013 is a good time to witness this, as Australia hosts a wealth of sporting events to get the pulse racing.
The eagerly anticipated British and Irish Lions rugby tour to Australia in June and July sees fixtures in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Then the Aussie Rules final series kicks off in September, with thousands of fans packing into the MCG stadium in Melbourne. The entire city takes on a lively atmosphere as excited fans cheer their teams to victory. It is a truly unique Australian experience.
The Melbourne Cup Carnival is one of the most vibrant horse-racing events in the world. This festival of horse racing and fashion culminates in November with the Melbourne Cup race itself. Most of Australia stops to watch or listen to the race, but there’s nothing like being there among the 100,000-plus crowd.
Then there is the Ashes, in November, with test matches in Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney.
