Overview

With this incredible nine-night twin-centre package, you can watch blockbuster tennis matches at the Australian Open and take in all of Melbourne’s wonders. Then, take the chance to hop over to energetic Sydney for a few more days of iconic sightseeing.

The Australian Open is the first of the four Grand Slam annual tennis events, preceding the French Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open. This exclusive package begins in Melbourne, with sought-after quarter and semi-final tickets, reserved Rod Laver Arena seats and private transfers.

Ask our team about upgrading with our premium hospitality options, including Superboxes for spectacular views of the action, or perhaps access to one of the arena’s best lounges with gourmet dining.

When you’re not soaking up the incredible sporting atmosphere, take a private day tour around Melbourne, which can be tailored to your own interests.

Spend the second part of your journey in Sydney, visiting some of its highlights including The Rocks, Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Then, whizz off to one of Australia's most picturesque regions, the Blue Mountains.

A slick spa, epic views and a hop, skip and a jump into the centre of Melbourne makes The Langham an excellent choice for visitors to this great city. Located in the heart of the Southbank Promenade, the city’s arts and leisure district, this upscale hotel on the banks of the Yarra River boasts sweeping views of the Melbourne skyline. Amble through the elegant hallways and you’ll find the open kitchen and ‘floating dessert’ display of Melba, and the sophisticated surrounds of Aria Bar and Lounge – just the place for a cocktail or two.

Four Seasons Sydney

Four Seasons Sydney puts you in the heart of Sydney’s shopping precincts, such as the Victorian-era Strand Arcade and the impressive Queen Victoria Building with its upscale stores.

Across from the hotel is Circular Quay, a transport hub where you can board ferries to explore one of the world’s most spectacular natural harbours; or catch a bus or train to the seaside suburbs of Bondi or Coogee, where you can watch surfers ride the waves and enjoy stunning coastal walks. The hotel sits on the edge of the historic Rocks district, where the first European settlers arrived in 1788; here, original warehouses have been carefully restored and transformed to boutiques, eateries and pubs. The hotel offers 531 rooms and suites with magnificent views varying from the city’s buildings to full harbour views encompassing Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
