Fly from Ireland to Melbourne
Days 3-4: Melbourne
Marvel at the multicultural metropolis of Melbourne, one of Australia’s most loved cities. A good place to start exploring is Flinders Square, right in the heart of the action. Grab a cappuccino in one of the cafes, browse the galleries or watch the live street performances before taking a walk through Melbourne’s lively Laneways, or riding the tram down to the seaside suburb of St Kilda and scaring yourself silly on the rollercoasters in historic Luna Park, built in 1912.
2 nights at the 4* Mantra 100 Exhibition
Days 5-11: Campervan Journey
Collect your campervan and follow the beautiful coastline to Sydney. On the way, sample the wines in the Mornington Peninsula, spot koalas and little penguins on Philip Island and laze on perfectly soft beaches. The beauty of this Journey is that you can choose your own route: take the coastal road and explore the region’s coves and beaches, or take the inland route for lush river valleys, gum tree forests and gold-mining towns.
7 nights Britz Venturer Campervan Rental
Day 12: Sydney
Arrive in Sydney and drop off your campervan. Spend your last few days relaxing and exploring the city, including the iconic Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House. Take to the glittering waters of Sydney Harbour to see the bridge in all its glory, or better yet climb to the top for far reaching Opera House views. Once you’ve wandered the city, browsed the shops and sampled the restaurants, be sure to head down to the world-famous Bondi Beach where you can try your hand at surfing.
