How do you get Tickets to the Australian Open in 2025?

Tickets for the 2025 Australian Open are not yet on sale but tickets for the 2024 tournament went on sale on Thursday, the 12th of October 2023 on the TicketMaster website.

In 2025, you will be able to buy tickets to one of the main show courts (Rod Laver Arena, Margaret Court Arena, and John Cain Arena (previously Melbourne Arena)) or you can choose to buy a grounds pass that will give you access to the smaller courts.

If you want to have a chance to watch some of the bigger names in tennis like Nadal, Djokovic, or Swiatek play at the 2025 Aussie Open then you need to get a Rod Laver Arena ticket as this is where most of the big matches will be played.

Tips for First-Time Visitors to Melbourne Park

Below are some helpful tips for first-time visitors to Melbourne Park.

1. Try and stay in a hotel close to the park

There are plenty of hotels near Melbourne Park as it will make your life much easier if your hotel is within walking distance of the park.

2. Be prepared for the weather

Temperatures in Melbourne can be as high as 79 degrees Fahrenheit (26 degrees Celsius) in January so it is important that you have adequate sunblock and that you reapply when necessary.

3. Aim to attend Melbourne Park in the first week

I would recommend going to the Aussie Open in the first week as if you only have a grounds pass then you still have a good chance of seeing some top players playing in some of the smaller outside courts.

If you purchase a ground pass in the second week of the tournament, then there will be fewer singles matches played on the outside courts as most of the big matches will be played in the Rod Laver, Margaret Court, or John Cain Arenas.

TV and Streaming Options


Tennis Australia struck a long-term broadcast rights extension with US media giant Discovery which means you will be able to watch the 2025 Aussie Open on Discovery’s Eurosport channel all across Europe (including in Ireland and the UK) until 2031.

For 2025, the Eurosport commentators/presenters are expected to include Barbara Schett, Justine Henin, Mats Wilander, Laura Robson, John McEnroe, Alize Lim, Alex Corretia, Roberta Vinci, Boris Becker, Barbara Rittner, Carla Suarez-Navarro, and Tim Henman.


The best way to watch the tournament from the US is on ESPN or the Tennis Channel as they both will be providing coverage for the 2025 Australian Open.
