When it comes to cricket, there’s nothing quite like The Ashes.

In fact, when it comes to sport, there’s very little that can match up to the history, reputation, rivalry and drama that this great tradition conjures up.

Like our other cricket tours, an Ashes tour combes the very best of the match action with plenty of entertainment and exploring.

The Ashes is set to go Down Under for 2021 - register your interest and we will let you know as soon as the full itinerary and information becomes available

As a long-standing official provider of Ashes holidays, Spectate's experience and knowledge make their tours simply the best way to take in all the atmosphere.

When you think of great cricketing rivalries, the Ashes has no peers. It's an incredible bucket list experience to witness the atmosphere and excitement of two teams battling for the famous Urn. Don't miss out.

The Ultimate Ashes Experience

No sporting bucket list is complete without a tour Down Under for an Australia v England Test Match. With our tours, you won’t just be watching the Ashes – you’ll be taking a front-row seat to watch history unfold.

You’ll be bowled over by our Ashes tour offerings – this really is the only way to visit Australia.

We always look forward to celebrating Christmas in Melbourne ahead of the Boxing Day Test, and then jetting over to Sydney and enjoying a prime position to enjoy the city’s famous New Year’s Eve fireworks.

When it comes to parties, the hottest ticket in town is undoubtedly our exclusive boat party in Sydney’s famous harbour – so come dressed to impress!

The Australia Experts

We’ve been travelling here for decades, and during that time we’ve picked up plenty of insider knowledge and expert insight on all things Australia.

We know the best places to stay across the country, from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast, Adelaide to Alice Springs and Kimberley to Kangaroo Island. Previous Ashes tours with our team have included:

  • Appearances from Michael Atherton and David Lloyd
  • Watching Carmen at the Sydney Opera House
  • Cruises through the Whitsundays
  • Whale watching boat tours and, of course,
  • Plenty of laughs.

What this means is that a tour to Australia to watch the Ashes is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

 

The Ashes - Key Destinations

Sydney

As well as watching a crucial Ashes clash, we include plenty of leisure time for you to enjoy the many enticing experiences this iconic city has to offer; from the beach at Bondi to the best ‘hatted’ restaurants in town, island hopping in the harbour to learning more about Australia’s aboriginal culture.

Adelaide

A city known for its ‘English’ charm and the Adelaide Oval - widely regarded as the most picturesque Test ground in the world – the capital city of South Australia is a fabulous destination on our tours. With its wide avenues, large squares and colonial architecture, Adelaide is certainly one of Australia’s prettiest cities, offering a laid-back pace and plenty of sunshine.

Brisbane

Within easy reach of beaches, untouched island reserves and heritage-listed forests, the capital of Queensland has all the benefits of a cosmopolitan city in a natural wonderland, with the Sunshine Coast to the north and the Gold Coast to the south. The Gabba cricket ground is an unbeatable venue for top-quality cricket.

Perth

With a relaxed and easy-going atmosphere on the banks of the Swan River, the natural and urban worlds meet in this western metropolis to create a space made for exploring. Experience a river cruise to Fremantle or relax on Rottnest Island before joining us at the WACA for the Perth instalment of The Ashes.

Melbourne

Enjoy the traditional Boxing Day Test at the famous MCG, as well as all the celebrations of the festive season in the sun; whether on a drive along the Great Ocean Road or with a spot of Christmas shopping! Arts and culture abound here in Victoria’s capital, so perhaps use a day at leisure to explore Melbourne’s finest galleries and exhibitions.
