The Australian Open is one of Melbourne’s biggest events and even if you don’t have tickets to see a game, there’s no reason why you can’t setup shop at Birrarung Marr and watch the tennis on the big screen. They have the Canadian Club racquet club for drinks and food trucks/stalls from well knowns like Gingerboy, Biggies Smalls, Hunky Dory and Doughnut Time.
The Canadian Club Racquet Club is up the stairs on the upper terrace on the big grassy knoll. It’s an outdoor bar area with pretty white seats, mad beats and refreshing beverages.
If you’re early or quick enough to snag a blue bean bag, lucky you. They are super comfy. People have their eyes on them so expect it to snapped away as soon as you get up.
Canadian club and dry with lime paired with Gingerboy’s crispy deep-fried chicken ribs with chilli sauce was an excellent combo.
The Biggie Smalls food truck have some of their kebabs and fries available including this vegetarian falafel one with crunchy slaw.
The Australian Open Festival is a great summer event. We’re excited to be spending summer days and nights drinking in the sun and watching some quality tennis on the big screens.
I heart the Australian Open!
