Your guide to buying tickets for the 2021 Australian Grand Prix on March 18-21. The best general admission, grandstands and hospitality access at Albert Park.
The ticket offer has remained fairly constant at Albert Park in recent years, though prices are up around $10 across the board for 2020. You can buy 4-days roaming access in General Admission (now known as a “Park Pass”) for under $200 or a grandstand seat from just over $300. The views from grandstands at Albert Park are generally limited to one or two corners. Some stands have a more expensive ‘premium’ section at the top which is covered, offering protection from the elements and better views. Most fans agree that the best grandstands are located on the first corner. We prefer the Brabham Grandstand on the inside of the circuit, but Jones (on the outside) is also a solid choice. Of the cheaper grandstands, the Schumacher grandstand on the Senna curve at the end of the lap is also worth considering.
3 Corner Grandstand Tickets
The 3 Corner grandstand tickets give you the chance to sit in a different grandstand on each day of the weekend. These are best suited to the first time fan who is not familiar with the track and wants to sample a variety of vantage points over the weekend. The packages, all priced at $505 AUD for four days, are named after the stand where you will be sitting on race day:
- Brabham 3 Corner: Friday = Jones / Saturday = Fangio / Sunday = Brabham
- Fangio 3 Corner: Friday = Brabham / Saturday = Jones / Sunday = Fangio
- Jones 3 Corner: Friday = Fangio / Saturday = Brabham / Sunday = Jones
AusGP Park Pass (Previously General Admission)
“AusGP Park Pass” tickets are available for single days or the whole weekend. Children aged 14 and under get FREE entry with a paying adult. Four-day tickets cost $185 AUD, while single-day tickets are priced as follows: Thursday $35, Friday $45, Saturday $85, Sunday $99.
The cheapest race tickets provide access to the circuit but not a reserved seat. Despite having no elevation, Australia has a deserved reputation for offering some of the best general admission viewing areas on the current calendar. New general admission features have been added over the years to provide a better spectator experience for fans, including grassy viewing mounds and raised concrete viewing platforms. You can get very close to the cars at several points around the track, though your views are always obscured by the catch fencing. Large viewing screens designed for Grandstand ticket holders can be viewed at various parts of the circuit, including turns 2, 9, 11 and 12. The best general admission vantage points get very busy on Saturday and Sunday, particularly ahead of qualifying and the race, so if you are determined to watch the action from a particular spot, get there early.
