Your holiday itinerary (ex Perth, Western Australia)
 
Day 1. Perth to Melbourne (D)
Tonight settle into your accommodation in the heart of the Melbourne CBD.  From your accommodation you are only a walk from great cafes, restaurants and Melbourne’s famous shopping and laneways.  Overnight each night: Novotel Melbourne on Collins, Melbourne
 
Day 2. Mornington Magic (BLD)
We leave the city for the picturesque Mornington Peninsula where a brand new attraction will take you sky high.  You will step board a state-of-the-art gondola at the Arthurs Seat Eagle and fly over the state forest to the highest point of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula.  You will be torn between looking at the breathtaking view across the bay to the city or spotting wildlife as you soar high above the trees.  Either way you have a bird’s eye view!  At the Summit Station, lunch and more views can be enjoyed at Eagle CafĂ© before returning on the gondola.  In the afternoon we travel to the tip of the peninsula, Point Nepean National Park for some of Victoria’s most beautiful natural landscapes and to discover the rich heritage.  The shuttle bus will be the perfect opportunity to travel the park before we then return to Melbourne.
 
Day 3. Australian Open Tennis Day Match (BD)
Spend today at Rod Laver Arena, soaking up the centre court action at the Australian Open Tennis Championships.  From your Premium Reserved seats, you will not miss a shot.  You will marvel at the skill and endurance the athletes require to play two weeks of demanding high-speed tennis.  Lunch is at your leisure from one of the many dining options within the arena.  Transfers to and from the Arena are included.
 
Day 4. Australian Open Tennis Evening Match (BL)
This morning you are free to enjoy Melbourne city at your leisure.  In the afternoon we come together for High Tea at the Windsor Hotel.  It is all about tradition and grandeur, and where more traditional or grand to indulge in this decadent ritual than The Hotel Windsor which has been serving its sumptuous Afternoon Tea since 1883.  Early this evening we return to the Rod Laver Arena to experience an evening of semi-final tennis action at the Australian Open from your premium seats.
 
Day 5. Australia Day in Geelong (BD)
Late this morning travel to Werribee Park to discover the mansion and rose garden.  On a guided tour explore the Victorian era in Australia, as you wander the rooms of the mansion, a living breathing postcard of the 19th Century.  Next we head to Geelong’s waterside where Australia Day Celebrations are taking place.  Lunch is at your leisure amongst the action. In the afternoon the National Wool Museum is an amazing journey tracing the first European settlers to our country right up to the current times. It is an incredible display depicting all facets of the Australian wool industry and its importance to our culture, economy and national identity.  Next stimulate the senses with the colours and scents of the amazing plant collection as you explore the botanical garden which is a renowned regional garden.  Tonight we have a special dinner planned for you at Geelong before returning to Melbourne.
 
Day 6. Melbourne to Perth (B)
After all the action of the Australian Open it is time to commence the journey home. We transfer to the Melbourne Airport for the return flight home.  Upon your arrival into Perth, our courtesy small charter vehicle will be ready to transfer you safely home.
