Hobart & Melbourne Escape

11 days,

8 nights |

from $2599 per person*


Experience the dynamic city of Hobart, which surpasses expectations at every turn. Australia’s southernmost capital is brimming with history and bursting with creativity (hello MONA). It boasts an incredible food and wine scene with local produce making the short journey from farm to table, and is fringed by scenic wilderness.

Take in the highlights of central Hobart on a 2-hour walking tour led by a local guide. Stroll along Hunter Street and the Hobart waterfront, view Salamanca Place, and walk through a city park as you hear about the colonial roots of the capital of Tasmania, and see heritage buildings with Victorian and Georgian architecture.

Enjoy an action-packed and fast paced day as you travel to the Tasman Peninsula. Learn about Tasmanian history at the Port Arthur Historic Site, watch Tasmanian Devils feeding, hike along cliff-tops and to spectacular lookouts, walk across Australia’s oldest bridge still in use in the historical town of Richmond and much more. Ideal if you’re short on time.

Melbourne is Australia’s hidden secret – bursting with history, tantalizing food and wine, hidden spaces, and iconic laneways. Discover Melbourne’s charming laneways and opulent arcades on an afternoon walking tour. Uncover tucked-away gems like specialty boutiques and local fashion designers, and savor Melbourne’s café culture with a stop for coffee or tea, and a chocolate tasting.

Enjoy a sociable and educational day out at the Yarra Valley visiting four premium wineries, including tastings with an expert guide, and lunch at Balgownie Estate.

Vacation can be customized to suit. Extend your stay with a 3-night stopover in Auckland in either direction or  stay and see more of Australia
