Lets be frank, wed need a heck of a lot of time to be able to see everything Australia has to offer, and sometimes were just not afforded that luxury. Fret not, fellow adventurers, because this 12-day tour will take you on a pretty thorough jaunt from Melbourne to the Red Centre, with a mix of must-see highlights and unique experiences along the way. Sample local wines, check out Victorias beaches, travel along the Great Ocean Road, take a guided night walk, sleep underground like the locals in Coober Pedy, and explore the Outback. (And more. Seriously.)
There are no planned activities during the day, so check into the hotel and explore the city. If you arrive early enough, head into the city to take in the 'cultural capital of Australia'. Get lost in the city's famous laneways, go on the hunt for the perfect flat white (hint: Melbourne loves its coffee shops), catch the tram to St. Kilda, or wander around the über-cool Fitzroy neighbourhood.
