Melbourne Welcome Package

This Melbourne arrival package has been created by two people who backpacked Australia before making Melbourne their home. They will be your hosts for the week.

They want to make sure you tick off bucket list items, such as surfing and hanging with local wildlife, but also showcase Melbourne and its surrounds too. This is done with the inclusion of unique features such as a food tour, wine tasting and a 2 day tour to the Mornington Peninsula and Phillip Island. This is something that's been totally customised and created for you.

It's not only about Melbourne, they want to make your first week in Australia easy with bank account and tax file set up, as well as employment and travel tips. Last but not least they promise to supply you with a new set of friends that will become your family aduring your stay in Oz.
