Your Example Itinerary

Days 1-2

Fly from the UK to Melbourne

Days 3-5

Melbourne

Start your Journey in multicultural Melbourne, a city filled with chic shopping plazas, stylish streetscapes, beautiful beaches and cosmopolitan cafes. When not sampling the cappuccinos and freshly baked cakes and pastries, you’ll take a day trip to the Yarra Valley, one of Australia’s most popular wine-growing regions, where you’ll spend the day sampling the wines and touring the vineyards. Back in town, don’t miss the tram ride to the seaside suburb of St Kilda, where you can ride the rollercoasters at Luna Park.

Included Excursion:
Yarra Valley Wine Tour
Included in this price:

4* Puntill Apartment Hotel Little Bourke

Days 6-7

Mornington Peninsula

Pick up your hire car and hit the road, stopping at the Mornington Peninsula, a strip of vineyards and orchards lined by beaches, unsurprisingly very popular with families. The top activity here is touring the wineries and sampling a glass or two, when you’re not kicking back on the beach that is. For something a little more active, you can choose to hike the coastal pathway, looking out for wombats, koalas, kangaroos and dolphins as you go.

Days 8-9

Apollo Bay

Take the car ferry across the entrance to Port Phillip Bay to Queenscliff, then drive down to Apollo Bay, half way along the famous Great Ocean Road. Famous for its golden beaches, Apollo Bay is a great place to relax, or to get out and discover the nearby Otway Ranges. If you don’t mind the drive, Apollo Bay can also be used as a base to explore the Twelve Apostles, a collection of limestone stacks jutting out from the ocean.

Included in this price:

4.5* Captains at the Bay

Days 10-11

Launceston

Drive back to Melbourne and catch your flight Launceston, Tasmania, one of Australia’s oldest non-Indigenous settlements. Launceston’s elegant layering of convict, Georgian and Victorian architecture frames a garden city set along a ribbon-curled river, while its museums, including the Automobile Museum and Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, are definitely worth a peek. Alternatively, explore the hiking trails of Cataract Gorge, an easy walk from Launceston’s central business district.

Included in this price:

4* Country Club Tasmania

Days 12-13

Freycinet National Park

Head for the coast and Freycinet National Park, a collection of jagged rocks and mountains backing up bright blue seas and white beaches. The park is most famous for the sweep of sand that makes up Wineglass Bay (shaped like a wine glass), which you’ll have plenty of time to explore on your scenic cruise – remember to look out for dolphins and seals! There are also plenty of walks to choose from, plus scenic drives along the beaches and rugged coastline.

Included Excursion:
Wineglass Bay Scenic Cruise
Included in this price:

4* Freycinet Lodge

Days 14-15

Hobart

The capital of Tasmania, Hobart is a superb natural sailing port, backed by the looming peak of Mount Wellington. Spend some time exploring the markets, hip music and foodie scenes, including the Cascade Brewery, and if you’re feeling energetic, you can drive or hike to the top of Mount Wellington for some fabulous views out to sea. Don’t miss the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA), dubbed “the world’s most far-out museum” by CNN and “a subversive adult Disneyland” by founder David Walsh.

Included Excursion:
Hobart City Tour
Included in this price:

5* Henry Jones Art Hotel

Days 16-17

Depart Hobart and return to the UK
