Follow in the footsteps of Australian superstar Ben Simmons with a basketball tour to Melbourne. With a world-class sporting precinct, a vibrant culture, and a deep pool of basketball talent, Melbourne is poised as the ideal destination for your next school basketball tour.
The Australian National Sports Museum at the MCG is a must see for all Melbourne school sports tours. From touch screens and avatars, to climbable walls and sporting challenges, visitors get to be part of the action and discover the unique stories of Australian sport. Celebrating sport in Australia, the museum has an incredible collection of historic artifacts from some of the great moments in the story of sport, places to learn about the greats of our most popular games, fun interactive activities.
There are exhibits for sports such as cricket, Australian rules football, tennis, rugby league, rugby union, soccer, basketball, boxing, netball and the Olympic Games. The Australian Sports Hall of Fame is also located within the museum along with the Australian Racing Museum and the Melbourne Cricket Club Museum. There’s something for everyone!
Melbourne is arguably Australia’s ‘Sporting’ and ‘culture’ capital of Australia, so it would be impossible to avoid Melbourne’s vibrant cultural atmosphere while on your school basketball tour. On a city tour your students will be taken off the beaten track to explore the iconic landmarks, colourful laneways, arcades, street art, parks and history. They will be captured by stories, history and experience the local side to Melbourne – learning how Melbourne became the cultural capital it is today!
