      Today we’re travelling back in time to learn about the rich history and culture of Australia’s Indigenous People, dating back over 50 000 years. This afternoon we’ll head down to the trendy suburb of St Kilda for some beach time, making the most of the sun before an arvo sesh at the iconic Espy hotel.

      This morning we’ll get your wanderlust pumping with all the information you’ll need to plan your travels around Oz, New Zealand, Asia and beyond.

      Day 5: Great Ocean Road

      We’re leaving the city today to explore Southern Australia’s natural splendor as we travel one of the most stunning stretches of coastline in the world – the Great Ocean Road.

Sun in our face, wind in our hair, we could get used to this Aussie lifestyle. (L, D)

      This morning we’ll check out the Mornington Peninsula, a coastal region that meshes quaint European vibes with relaxed Aussie charm. After a dose of the alfresco lifestyle, get ready to meet some of Australia’s friendly, furry locals as we head to Phillip Island. We’ll walk through the canopy at a Koala Reserve to spot these cuddly creatures in their natural environment, then go down to the beach to watch the Penguin Parade. Home to the largest Little Penguin colony in the world, we’ll watch these cuties waddle from the ocean to their burrows, wondering how anything on earth could possibly be this adorable. (B)

      Do many people travel alone on Oz Intro Melbourne?

      Yes. In fact, most people who do Oz Intro are travelling solo. So it’s a great way to meet people and make friends to travel around Australia with! Check out our article on travelling alone to Australia.

      When is the best time to visit Australia?

      It’s always a good time to go backpacking in Australia! It’s generally quite hot in most parts of the country for the majority of the year, except for the southern half of Australia during winter (June, July & August). But because Australia is such a big country, when it’s cold down south most people will head north and follow the sun!

      What luggage do you recommend?

      We always recommend traveling with a backpack and packing light! 15-20kgs of stuff is plenty. Australia is a BIG country so dragging around a huge suitcase is never fun. Check out our packing guide: What to pack on your Australia tour.
