Begin your holiday with a pleasant flight to Melbourne – the capital of Victoria.
Upon arrival, you will join a tour to cover Melbourne’s city sights and historical landmarks – drive past St Patrick’s Cathedral, Arts Centre Melbourne, Yarra River, and Cooks’ Cottage. Next, visit Queen Victoria Market, a vibrant 19th century shopping mecca and historic landmark in Melbourne that illustrates the variety of its culture and produce. Queen Victoria Market is an authentic, bustling, inner-city market that has been the heart and soul of Melbourne for over 140 years and an awesome place to discover fresh and specialty produce, handmade and unique products, great coffee and food, souvenirs and clothing.
Note: Queen Victoria Market is closed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Public Holidays.
Today, explore one of the world's most spectacular scenic coastal drives, which offers beautiful vistas of sand, sea, mountains and rainforest. The section near Port Campbell covers some of the most scenic coastline in the world due to the striking and dramatic natural rock formations. See Loch Ard Gorge and be swept away by the romantic and tragic story of love and disaster aboard the Loch Ard. Witness the rugged splendour of the famous 12 Apostles, massive rock stacks that rise up majestically from the Southern Ocean on Victoria's dramatic coastline. View the collapsed London Bridge and marvel at the geological masterpiece of The Grotto, a giant arch formation bent over a sinkhole caused by acid eating away at the limestone beneath.
Start the day at Warrook Cattle Farm where you will enjoy various activities such as animal feedings, sheep shearing, working dogs, whip cracking. Next, head to Phillip Island to visit The Nobbies Centre, a marvellous network of boardwalks perched on the western tip of the island that afford spectacular views along the rugged south coast. Take a moment to learn about the local area from the educational signages and uncover more about Australia's largest Fur Seal colony. Thereafter, visit Phillip Island Chocolate Factory for an insight into the process of making chocolate and its origins, or experiment with their unique machinery to create your very own chocolate bar! In the evening, head over to Penguin Reserve to watch the popular Penguin Parade. Behold the arresting sight of waddling penguins as they return to shore after feeding at sea.
Note: Warrook Cattle Farm will be replaced with Churchill Island Farm if it is closed due to any unforeseen circumstances.
This morning, make your way to Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Gardens, home to Australia's oldest and most famous hedge maze, a beautiful circular rose maze, and the year-round flowering Lavender Labyrinth, all set among 25 acres of world-renowned gardens. Next, continue to Sunny Ridge Strawberry Farm, home of Australia’s largest strawberry producer. Explore the fields as you pick some of their world-famous strawberries. Then, proceed to a local winery for some wine tasting. Enjoy a taste of the local wines and learn about the process that goes into making wine.
Note: Strawberry picking season normally starts from November to April, subject to seasonal availability.
Today, travel north to see the distinctive bathing boxes of Brighton Beach, a row of uniformly proportioned wooden structures lining the foreshore that renders the beach instantly recognisable due to its colourful embellishments. Thereafter, continue to visit Direct Factory Outlets for a bout of shopping at more than 180 outlet retailers and well-known labels under one roof. After that, we shall take some time to undergo the requisite COVID-19 test together as a group. Next, visit Werribee Open Range Zoo. Climb aboard their safari bus and be transported to the open plains of Asia, North America and Africa to learn about some of the world’s most endangered species and the zoo’s conservation efforts. You'll also learn more about the work of the communities in Northern Kenya to help protect wildlife through the Beads for Wildlife program.
Enjoy the day at your leisure and explore the streets of Melbourne at your own pace. Rich in art, culture and history, the city pulses with vibrancy.
