The Australian Open (also known as the Australian Open Tennis Championships) is the first Grand Slam tennis tournament of the year, taking place annually in Melbourne, Australia, in mid-January. It coincides with the Australia Day holiday. The other Grand Slam tournaments are the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open.

The Australian Open was first held in 1905 - it is the oldest Grand Slam tournament outside of the United States and the United Kingdom. The tournament was originally played on grass courts but switched to hard courts in 1988. The tournament takes place at Melbourne Park, a large sporting complex.

In 2024, the Australian Open took place on 28th January. The next tournament will take place from 12-26th January 2025. We recommend booking your flights at least 6 months in advance!
