8-Day Melbourne Arrival Package

Welcome to Travel: Melbourne

Select Option


See Melbourne and Victoria in a different way by joining other young travellers on this special trip. 

The action packed 8 days includes things you need such as an airport shuttle and accommodation as well as must do activities such as surfing and wildlife experiences and then those things you didn't know you could do such as wine tasting paddle-boarding and of course getting up close to those tiny little penguins.

What You'll Get

Your journey will start with an airport pickup and from there our driver will take you to the YHA Metro. The pickup included on any day but Sunday is the first night of included accommodation. We can add extra nights on for you.


The Monday morning will start with a meet and greet where we get to know each other, run through the itinerary and for those that need it, we'll set up phone sims, bank accounts and tax file numbers before going on a fun, informative and exciting walking tour of the best City in the world. 

It will end with a stunning welcome meal by the banks of the Yarra River, what a way to end day 1!


Melbourne is home to the spectacular Queen Victoria Market and it really is a true treat for all the senses.

After haggling a bargain and exploring the wonders of Queen Victoria Market’s many stalls, we will spend the afternoon in the most Melbourne way possible, eating and drinking on our own food and drink tour of the City.


We want you to experience the city but we also want you to see it’s surrounds. Mornington Peninsula and Phillip Island are two of the most incredible yet barely touched 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 off we'll be watching over 500 PENGUINS running across the beach, yes you read that right!


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


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 lazing on the beach and paddle boarding (included!).
*In winter this day will be replaced with a different itinerary.


Do you want to go in to work 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 after your first week in Australia. Every single traveller will have their own one-on-one meeting meaning the perfect personalised plan can be made.

What do we need after that? To join Melbourne’s biggest bar crawl of course.


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, and  talk about memories made on the best week of your life.
