It’s the biggest week in Melbourne and lets face it, only 100,000 people are lucky enough to get tickets to the AFL Grand Final.

If you are not one of them, then you are probably aimlessly searching around for somewhere to watch it. If your mates aren’t up for trashing their house with beer/cider cans, then here are some of the best options to see the action.

Grand Final Day at Welcome to Thornbury!

Even though it’s going to be a little chilly on Saturday, Welcome To Thornbury will be well and truly pumping with a part-ticketed event from 11am. For $70 you can guarantee your seat for the Grand Final (in Thornbury) and get unlimited beer, mimosas and espresso martinis until 2PM. They will also chuck in a spit roasted roll for you.

If you don’t wanna pay $70, then the remaining spaces are free but a seat isn’t guaranteed.

Grab your tickets, here.
