Welcome to hipster central! Don't worry, it's the good kind. The kind that means you're just as likely to stumble on a backstreet full of street art, as a deconstructed hot chocolate which tastes so good that it's basically a work of art its self. This is the home of the iconic avo-latte (make of it what you will), men with beads and neighbourhoods with attitude. Soak in the city vibe, wander the parks, shop till you drop and snag some killer Instagram shots. 

Melbourne is an incredible city full of amazing culture, as well as a great departure point for the East Coast. We're talking the whole hog - Melbourne to Cairns covers the whole of Australia's iconic East Coast and leaves no beach undiscovered and no beer undrunk. This is your Australia holiday of a lifetime. We're talking the Great Ocean Road, Sydney, Fraser Island, Noosa, Byron Bay, the Whitsundays, Magnetic Island, the Great Barrier Reef and SO much more.
