Top tips for attending the Australian Grand Prix

05/04/22

Whether you’re a first-time attendee or a lifetime fan.

Whether you’re a first-time attendee or a lifetime fan, we want to make sure the Formula 1® Heineken® Australian Grand Prix 2022 is memorable for all the right reasons.

With massive crowds expected across all four days of the event, the atmosphere around Albert Park is going to be electric, but with large crowds come extra challenges.

PLANNING AHEAD and being armed with information before you get to the gates is going to be as important as ever.

We’ve been listening to all of your feedback and taken on board all of the comments and we’re here to help. Based on all of the questions we’ve received, here are our top tips to ensure you get the most out of your day.


Before you leave home

Make sure you know which gate you are entering via. This will be stated on your electronic ticket.

Fans attending on a Park Pass (GA) are recommended to enter via gates 2 - 10 and for anyone intending on staying after the on-circuit action has finished for one of our after dark AusGP sessions, please take note of the gates that will still be open when exiting Albert Park.

Friday Grandstand tickets for the Formula 1®️ Heineken®️ Australian Grand Prix 2022 are available from $91. Get them before they sell out.

For gate opening and closing times, as well as information on which gate is best for you to enter through, please check our gate information page.

Please note, fans with a Park Pass ticket are advised to enter through Gates 2 - 10


Transport

The best way to get yourself in (and out) of Albert Park is via public transport.

Your ticket to the Formula 1® Heineken® Australian Grand Prix 2022 gives you free tram travel between the city and the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit with Public Transport Victoria’s custom journey planner tool making it easier than ever to get to your correct gate. The journey planner has been tailored to the Grand Prix Circuit so all you need to do is put in which gate you will be entering via and the Journey Planner will tell you how to get there.

Public transport services outside of the free shuttle trams require a valid MYKI ticket and there are dedicated Taxi and Uber pick-up locations around the circuit, with more details available via the Australian Grand Prix website.


Tickets at the Gate

There will be no tickets available for purchase at the gates in 2022.

All tickets must be pre-purchased before arriving at Albert Park and if you are yet to purchase a ticket, please be advised that while we are at capacity for Saturday and Sunday, there are still plenty of great grandstand and general admission options available for Friday as the new-spec 2022 Formula 1® cars hit our modified Albert Park circuit for the first time, with G-Flip and The Rubens hitting the AusGP Sessions stage on Friday.


Download Your Tickets

To save time, please ensure that your digital ticket has been downloaded prior to arriving at Albert Park. If you have a Park Pass or Grandstand ticket and need assistance, please see Ticketmaster’s guide to downloading your digital ticket.

Please also have your Vaccination Certificates available to present on entry as it is an entry requirement that all attendees be double-vaccinated.


Bringing Kids

As in previous years, kids 14 and under can enter Albert Park for free when accompanied by an adult with a valid ticket.

Each Adult Park Pass (General Admission) ticket will provide free entry for up to four (4) juniors.

Simply redeem your free child’s General Admission ticket/s by visiting one of our Customer Service Box Offices outside of gates 2, 3, 5, 8 or 10 with proof of adult ticket purchase.


COVID-19 Requirements

The Formula 1® Heineken® Australian Grand Prix 2022 will be run in accordance with advice from the Victorian Government.

It is a requirement that all attendees have had a minimum of two vaccinations against the COVID-19 virus.

If you feel unwell, please stay home and contact the ticketing team to discuss your options, at ticketing@grandprix.com.au.

Interstate and international visitors are encouraged to download the Services Victoria app to help facilitate checking in and vaccine requirements.

We are working tirelessly to ensure the 2022 event is a safe one and are around implementing a number of COVID-Safe measures right around Albert Park with regular cleaning and hand sanitizing stations located around the circuit.

3D Virtual Circuit Map

It’s been a while since we’ve had the privilege of hosting Formula 1® in Melbourne and while we have fan favourites returning – such as M-Lane, Legends Lane, Melbourne Walk, the AusGP Sessions Stage, Versor Tech Hub and F1® Central to name a few, the 2022 circuit build is shaping as the biggest and most ambitious in the event’s history.

To help fans navigate their way around Albert Park, we recommend using the Australian Grand Prix’s new 3D virtual map, available to all fans via the website.


Schedules

Stay on top of all the on and off-track action by visiting the event schedule pages on the Australian Grand Prix Website.


Extra Experiences

Albert Park comes alive in 2022 with the circuit themed to reflect some of our favourite Victorian Regions.

Within each of our regional precincts, fans will find unique activations, entertainment, and experiences in each precinct.

Explore our precincts and start planning your day.

Fans can also choose to add extra experiences like Pit Lane & Main Straight walks to their Grand Prix weekend, simply by joining our AusGP Access Program. There are four tiers of access within the program, each coming with their own list of benefits.


Getting Home and Gate Hours

As important as it is to plan your trip into Albert Park, we would also recommend that fans also plan their journey home.

Whether you’re planning to head straight home or into the city to kick-on and enjoy some of Melbourne’s nightlife, save time and plan ahead.

Fans can exit Albert Park at the end of the day though any gate, however fans staying for performances on the AusGP Sessions stage after the on-track action has finished should leave through either gate 1 or 8 (as other gates will be closed by this time).

Please keep an eye on the screens in the venue that will advise of each gate wait times. Please note that gates 1 and 2 can experience high demand at peak times and it is recommended that you exit via alternate gates.

Please also be courteous to our neighbours that live in and around Albert Park while exiting the venue.

All gate times are available via the Australian Grand Prix website.
