Staying in Melbourne

Set on the banks of the Yarra River, Melbourne is an attractive city with a stunning skyline and bursting with trendy suburbs and excellent dining. Exploring on foot is a great way to see the city’s architecture and secret side streets to visit one-off boutiques.

Take time to relax in one or two of Melbourne's many rooftop bars and authentic pubs, or on the beach with a cocktail or chilled Aussie wine!

Holiday in Australia

Following your spectacular tennis experience, why not incorporate a wider touring adventure? Enjoy diverse terrain, from lush tropical rainforests to deserted white beaches. Drive one of the world’s most scenic touring routes, The Great Ocean Road, winding along a spectacular coastline, lined with dramatic cliffs and rolling surf beaches. Choose a scenic flight over the famous Twelve Apostles; a private tour of the Barossa Valley wine region; a dramatic sunrise over Uluru, Ayer’s Rock and sunset over the Olgas – the colours are simply glorious and a magical place to stay. A perfect conclusion to any Australian holiday is Sydney, a cosmopolitan harbour city with a sparkling personality and one of the world’s finest destinations.
