Day 1 - Sunday

Airport Pickup

Your Welcome to Melbourne Week starts on Monday morning, so you need to be in Melbourne for the Sunday night.

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 accommodation

2

Day 2

Our morning meet and greet will see you meet your new family and learn why the next 7 days will form the best week of your life. We’ll take you on a walking tour around Melbourne and 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 (included) at one of Australia’s most iconic settings, the banks of the Yarra River.

3

Day 3

First up we’ll be organising your admin needs for your time in Australia. We’ll sort your tax file number (this is essential when applying for jobs), bank account and phone number.

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 I’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!

4-5

Day 4 - 5

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 Welcome to Melbourne family.

6

Day 6

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!

7

Day 7

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!

8

Day 8

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.

This package totally took the stress out of starting my work visa. Absolutely loved Melbourne and it was great to have the guys advice throughout the week whilst we got everything setup

Couldn’t have asked for a better start to my time in Australia and I can’t wait to explore more of it. Would totally recommend for anyone doing a work visa here.
