Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

There comes a time each year when Albert Park gets buzzing for the Australian Grand Prix, and it’s coming up again. Racing at speeds we wouldn’t dare get near, there will surely be some thrills and spills over the four days, all with a victorious goal in sight.

There will be no shortage of entertainment across the event, with RAAF Jets and Roulettes taking to the sky and Nitro Circus on the ground, not to mention the main event. In fact, check out our spotter's guide to the punters – entertainment in itself.

In the 60th year at Albert Park, see whether Sebastian Vettel will be able to retain his World Champion status, or if Jenson Button can win the Australian title back-to-back. Who knows, maybe our own Mark Webber will cinch victory on his home ground.

To celebrate the race’s 60th year at Albert Park, general admission will be free on March 14.
