FRIDAY 23TH OCTOBER
Check into your accommodation at the 5 star Melbourne Marriott. Kick-off your tour by joining us for a group dinner including a 3 course set menu + beer and wine. This is a great opportunity to talk cricket, catch up with old friends or make some new ones. It's always one of the most memorable parts of the tour experience and something we recommend getting involved in.
SATURDAY 24TH OCTOBER
After breakfast, we will travel an hour from downtown Melbourne to one of Victoria’s most stunning coastal and wine regions where we will learn about the rich cultural history of the Mornington Peninsula. Take a stroll around Sorrento, the site of Victoria’s first European settlement in 1803 and view the stunning Portsea area - renowned for its views over the Bass Strait and Port Phillip Bay. Lunch will be at one of the Peninsula’s famous wineries followed by a visit to Ashcombe Maze & Lavender Farm before returning back to Melbourne in the late afternoon.
After a bit of time to rest and relax, we will have our second group dinner of the trip.
SUNDAY 25TH October
This morning we enjoy a historic cruise and lunch on the Yarra River. Regarded as the scenic part of the river, we travel upstream past Federation Square, the Birrarung Marr Parklands, past the Botanic Gardens and the suburb of Richmond, turning around at the mansions of South Yarra.
We will return with plenty of time for you to get ready ahead of tonight's match between the Blackcaps and West Indies. We have a coach transfer to the stadium so you don't have to stress. First ball is at 7pm - this should be a cracker!
MONDAY 26TH OCTOBER
That's a wrap! Check out, say your goodbyes and then head home after a great weekend in Melbourne.
