The exciting new look Melbourne ITT, offers a spectator friendly 1.6 km Individual Time Trial through the heart of Melbourne.


Set up in Alexandra Gardens with a picnic, enjoy a cold beverage and have a bite to eat in the Tour Village as the riders roll out of the start house and on to a course featuring new aspects to make for a spectacular and fast race finishing at Queensbridge Square.


The Word from the Race Director

 “Melbourne will witness rainbows fly as Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton Scott) will wear the world champion jersey for the first time in 2018”

 “Every second will count for the overall victory in Women’s Tour and the battle for the yellow jersey on to the road for the Men. Time will be won or lost as the riders come back into Alexandra Gardens through a fast and technical section before heading down Southbank to the finish.”


  • Alexandra Gardens – Set up a picnic, grab a cold beverage and a bite to eat as the riders race around the Tour Village. Plenty to see with highlights and ‘All for One’ on the big screen.
  • Southbank – Enjoy the fast finish from one of the many bars and restaurants along Southbank whilst enjoying views of the iconic Yarra River.
  • Queensbridge Square – join the crowd at the finish line and enjoy the atmosphere of the Tour Village. You will have the best seat in the house and the added bonus of the big screen, live commentary and post race presentations.
