8 Day Welcome to Melbourne Package

Work and Travel in Melbourne

Sunday – Arrival Day

Your Welcome to Travel: Melbourne week will start on Monday morning, so you need to be in Melbourne for the Sunday night.

Landing a few days before? No worries! Your airport pickup is included for any day before the tour and we can organise any extra nights required at the YHA accommodation.


Our morning meet and greet will see you get to know your new travel family before we put you at total ease by organising your bank, phone number and tax file number. This means that you’re organised for life in Australia from the start!

After that it’s time for us to take you on a guided tour of Melbourne where you’ll learn why so many travellers love this incredibly diverse city.

We’ll end the day with a riverside group Welcome Meal (dinner included) on Southbank, one of Australia’s most iconic settings.


Melbourne is home to the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest open air market and it is a true treat for all the senses. After haggling a bargain and exploring the wonders of Queen Victoria Market’s, we will spend the afternoon in the most Melbourne way possible: eating and drinking. It feels like Melbourne has more food establishments than anywhere in the world so we thought the best way to showcase that was to create an exclusive food tour just for you….SO WE DID!


Sure, we want you to experience this fantastic city, but we also want you to see it’s beautiful 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 today you’ll complete another Australian must do as you learn how to ride a wave.

This day includes a few hidden secrets along the way but the all you need to know is that you will get the chance to get up close to KOALAS and KANGAROOS. Another bucket list item ticked, two in one day!

April-September Surfing may be replaced by kayaking or mountain biking (this is weather dependent and at the discretion of the tour guide)


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, paddle boarding (included!)

April-September The beach day will be replaced with firstly a secret inclusion and then an enriching and insightful Aboriginal Heritage Walk and Smoking Ceremony in the Royal Botanical Gardens before viewing Melbourne from the highest viewing platform in Australia; the incredible Eureka Skydeck.


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.

We’ll go through all of our job resources including resume writing, employer database and farm-work opportunities, as well show you how to explore this magnificent country. This will be done in a group setting AND then you’ll have a one-on-one meeting with an Australia expert meaning you’ll leave with all questions answered.

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


And just like that, it’s nearly over. 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 soak up the skyline as we talk about the memories made over the best week of your life.
