Making the most of your day
To ensure the kids have the best AO experience possible make sure they dress in comfortable, weather appropriate clothing. Pack hats, an extra layer in case of cooler weather and some activities require closed toed shoes and bathers if you are planning on visiting the Aqua Play Park.
Australian summer days can get hot! Even if the sun is not out in full, it's important to come prepared with sunscreen to protect you from the UV. If you forget, sunscreen is sold at multiple outlets around the precinct.
Keep everyone hydrated throughout the day by regularly filling up your water bottle at water stations around the precinct. The Australian Open Fan Shop sell water misters if you forget your own bottle and want an added mister to keep you cool.
As part of the ongoing effort to make it easy for parents to bring their kids to the AO, Ballpark now has free pram parking available in two locations. Leave your pram in safe hands so that you can focus on enjoying your day.
There is now a parents room within the Ballpark situated directly next door to the Pram Parking. Complete with change table, microwave, and comfy chairs to feed in.
Ballpark now has a kids change room within Ballpark. Perfect for changing kids back into their dry clothes after all the fun at the Aqua Play Park.
