Summary

Welcome To Travel: Melbourne

This itinerary guarantees you the best possible experience of Melbourne and its surrounding area. It also ensures you’re all set with everything you need for your time in Australia.

ARRIVAL DAY – SUNDAY

AIRPORT PICK UP  l  SUNDAY NIGHT ACCOMMODATION INCLUDED

Your activity week starts on Monday morning, so it’s best to arrive in Melbourne on the Sunday (so you can work on getting over your jet lag!)

Landing a few days before? No worries! Your airport pickup is included for any day before the tour and we can organise any required extra nights at the YHA accommodation

MONDAY

MEET AND GREET  l  CITY TOUR  l  WELCOME MEAL

Your week will begin with a morning meet and greet of your brand new Melbourne travel family! You will quickly learn why the next 7 days will form the best week of your life and we will kick things off by taking you on a walking tour around Melbourne to show you this fascinatingly diverse city. We’ll be taking you to famous Melbourne Graffiti Laneways, the world famous Federation Square, bustling Bourke Street Mall and many other must-see stops.

We’ll end the day with a group welcome meal (dinner included) at one of Australia’s most iconic settings, the banks of the Yarra River.

 

TUESDAY

TAX FILE NUMBER  l  BANK SET UP  l  SIM CARD  l  EXPLORE MARKETS  l  FOODIES TOUR  l  LANEWAY BARS

The first job today will be to sort your admin needs for your time in Australia. We’ll organise your tax file number (this is essential when applying for jobs), bank account and phone number. You will also receive a FREE 12 months YHA Membership Card.

After the paperwork is done, we’ll visit the world famous Queen Victoria Market where we’ll explore the stalls and haggle a bargain. This true Melbourne institution is also a perfect setting for our lunch, which we’d recommend is a light one…

That’s because our afternoon will be spent in the most Melbourne way possible, eating and drinking! Melbourne has more food establishments than anywhere in the world so we thought the best way to showcase that was to create an exclusive food tour just for you, so we did!

WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY

BEACH HUTS  l  WINE TASTING  l  PENGUINS  l  SURF LESSON  l  FEED A KANGAROO  l   PET A KOALA

It’s time to leave the City behind and head South to see the beautiful surrounds of Melbourne. Over two days we’ll visit the stunning Mornington Peninsula and Phillip Island, two of the most beautiful and untouched spots in Australia.

Over two days you’ll tick off those bucket list items as you see stunning pristine beaches, feed kangaroos, hang with koalas, even learn to surf, clap eyes on 500 tiny penguins and even indulge in the finest wine Australia has to offer!  Think of why you came to Australia and so much of it is in these two days.

Not only does it already sound amazing, this tour doesn’t normally exist and has been especially created for you. There’s no better way to experience all of these things than with your brand new Melbourne family!

FRIDAY

ST KILDA  l  BEACH HANGS  l  LUNA PARK  l  PADDLE BOARD*  l  SKYDIVE*

Melbourne has many celebrated suburbs and St Kilda is as famous as they get.

We’ll take the morning to stroll this quaint beach suburb taking in its iconic promenade, alfresco cafes and famous landmarks such as Luna Park, Acland St and the Palais Theatre.

The afternoon can be spent lazing on the beach, paddle boarding OR if you’re feeling adventurous, Australia is the Skydiving capital of the world and you only live once, let’s do it!! This can all be organised by us! *Extra cost

SATURDAY

EXPLORE THE CITY  l  EMPLOYMENT HELP  l  TRAVEL TALK  l  ACCOMMODATION ADVICE  l  BAR CRAWL

Saturday morning is YOUR time to chill out and explore Melbourne. We recommend you take us up on all our local tips on how to spend the morning,  brunch spots being our speciality! Advice in the morning will be followed by advice in the afternoon as we talk about where after Melbourne? We have backpacked Australia so know all the hot spots and we’ll be able to help you plan your adventure.  As we wrap that up, we’ll crack open the beers before the big Saturday night bar crawl!

SUNDAY

CHILL MORNING   l   ROOF TOP BBQ    l   FAREWELL DRINKS

And as if like that, it’s nearly over. We’re not silly and one thing we’re experienced with is the morning after so we’re leaving the morning to you. We expect it will be a lazy one after a big Saturday night. Sunday afternoon we’ll help again with job information as well as answer any travel questions from the previous day. Melbourne is celebrated for rooftop/laneway bars and after a farewell meal we’d love to give you a fitting send off by taking you to a few of our personal favourites that no regular tourist would ever usually find.
