FRIDAY 13TH NOV
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 14TH NOV
Today we have a full day trip where we will explore some of the most magnificent countryside in Victoria. We will experience the Dandenong Ranges in full as you take a ride on the iconic Puffing Billy steam train. We then head back to Melbourne via St Kilda and enjoy lunch on the beach. Return to the hotel via the historic Rippon Lea Estate & gardens at Elsternwick which was completed in 1868 by Frederick Sargood.
We will then regroup later on for our second group dinner (venue TBC).
Sunday 15TH NOV
Today is the big day, the ICC T20 World Cup Final! Before all the action starts we have a guided tour of Melbourne focussing on its food, history and of course sport! Take in the grandeur of Melbourne’s sporting precinct to help you truly understand this city’s obsession with sport. Drive through the beachside suburbs stopping in St Kilda – Melbourne’s playground – where you can find people from all walks of life and meet the faces behind the produce at Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Market. This vibrant historic landmark has been at the heart and soul of Melbourne for more than a century, offering everything from gourmet foods to clothing and souvenirs, with stalls passed down through generations.
Once we get back to the hotel you will have a bit of time to yourself before we jump on a coach transfer to the Melbourne Cricket Ground to take in the final!
MONDAY 16TH NOV
That's a wrap, for the tour and for the tournament! Check out, say your goodbyes and then head home after a great weekend in Melbourne.
