Get revved up for Formula One's return to Melbourne. You'll need to be firing on all cylinders to back up full days by the track with all the fun of Melbourne at its finest.

Visiting some of Melbourne and Victoria's most iconic sights takes in some seriously impressive driving. Tackle the twists and hairpin turns of the renowned Great Ocean Road, or take a few laps of your own on Phillip Island's Grand Prix circuit.
