This will be your arrival day with all of the action starting on the following Monday morning. This means you need to be in Melbourne for the Sunday night before, at the latest. 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 your accommodation. You will be invited to a WhatsApp group a week before your tour starts, so you can arrange to meet up with people from the tour beforehand if you want to.

Our morning Meet & Greet is when you will get the chance to meet everyone, including the guide, and get to know your new travel family. Following this, we will take care of organising your bank account, phone number and Tax File Number. This means that you’re organised for your life in Australia from the very start, so you can spend the rest of the time exploring. After that, it’s time for us to take you on a guided tour of Melbourne where you’ll learn why so many travellers love this incredibly diverse city. We'll end the day with a riverside group Welcome Meal (dinner included) in Southbank, one of Melbourne’s most iconic settings.

INCLUDED MEALS: Dinner & 1 Drink


The food and drink scene in Melbourne is ridiculously good, so we dedicate the day to it. We start with a local favourite, Queen Victoria Market. This place is a feast for all senses and we spend the morning meeting local vendors and exploring everything this Melbournian institute has to offer. Before starting our very own street art, food and drink tour, complete with tastings
(and dinner) we learn about Australia’s Indigenous people, with an insightful Aboriginal Heritage Walk through Melbourne’s Royal Botanical Gardens. This day is all about seeing Melbourne through a local’s eyes, our travellers love it and so will you!

INCLUDED MEALS: Snacks+Tasters, Dinner & 2 Drinks. 

Sure we want you to experience this fantastic city, but we also want you to see its beautiful surroundings. Mornington Peninsula and Phillip Island are two of the most incredible yet less-explored spots in Australia. We will be having some much needed BEACH time, we'll be WINE tasting, heading to spectacular SCENIC lookouts and to finish the day off, we'll be watching over 500 PENGUINS run across the beach. Yes, you read that right!

INCLUDED MEALS: 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner & Wine Tastings at Vineyard

Australia is known for its famous SURF and this is the day that you'll tick another Australian bucket-list item as you learn how to ride a wave. This day includes a few hidden secrets along the way, but the main thing you need to know is that you will get the chance to get up close to KOALAS, KANGAROOS and other adorable Australian creatures. Another bucket list item ticked - two in one day!


It is time to start thinking about what you’ll do next with your time in Australia. In the morning, we'll be having a presentation on EMPLOYMENT for everyone on a Student or Working Holiday Visa (travellers on a Visitor Visa don’t have the right to work in Australia).

We’ll cover absolutely everything before focusing on TRAVEL tips. We'll tell you everything you need to know about travelling within this incredible country so you can make the most of your time on this side of the world.
Melbourne has many celebrated suburbs and St Kilda is as famous as they get. We’ll head to this quaint beach suburb taking in its iconic promenade, alfresco cafes and famous landmarks. The afternoon will be spent getting food at one of the many delicious cafes, lazing on the beach and trying out paddle boarding (weather permitting). 

Do you want to go in to work straight away or do you want to travel? Either way we will get you organised! Saturday is the perfect time to look at everything you will need to sort out for after your first week in Australia with us.

We’ll go through all of our job resources including resume writing tips, our extensive employer database and farm-work opportunities, as well show you how to explore this magnificent country.

This will be done in a group setting (during Friday’s presentation) AND in a one-on-one setting (on Saturday) meaning you’ll leave with all of your questions answered!
What do we need after that? To join Melbourne’s biggest bar crawl of course.

INCLUDED MEALS: 4 Drinks & Pizza.

And just like that, it’s nearly over.
What better way to spend our final Sunday afternoon together than lazing on a rooftop overlooking the city with your new travel family? We’ll crank up the BBQ, hand out the beers and soak up the skyline as we talk about memories made over the best week of your life.
Accommodation at the hostel on Sunday night is not included as part of the tour, but we are happy to arrange extra nights upon request (this can be done while you are on the tour).

INCLUDED MEALS: Dinner & Drink
