It certainly is a great tournament and always has the best weather
I'd really love to go. I'm planning to go to Australia in just over a years time, and am planning to go when the Australian Open is on. It will be an expensive trip (flight mainly), as I know people out there so will have somewhere to stay. I've never been to Australia before so am looking forward to it, even though it's over a year away (it will be my next holiday).
