Created for travellers by travellers, this is so much more than a normal welcome package.

Adam and Darryl backpacked the country before settling here for good. They are now adopted Aussies and want to welcome you to your travel adventure with this perfectly organised and action packed week.


 They thought of all the things you could dream of in a first week in Australia:

•       2 day/1 night getaway that includes a surf lesson, wine tasting, Australian Wildlife Park AND Phillip Island penguins.

•       Riverside welcome meal and farewell rooftop BBQ

•       Bar crawl including 4 drinks and pizza!

•       Guided city exploring tour

•       Incredible food and drink tour of this foodie city

•       Beautiful St Kilda beach day including paddle boarding


Not only that but they also include everything you really NEED in that first week:

•       Stress free arrival with airport pickup and 7 nights accommodation

•       Tax file number, bank account and phone sim set up

•       Expert guides and fellow travellers forming your new Aussie family

•       Employment help and lifetime Welcome to Travel Membership


 Sounds like the best week ever right? We think so! While the action starts on a Monday the first included night is a Sunday. Landing earlier? That’s fine, we can add extra nights for you too.

The airport shuttle can be arranged for any day. You just let us know and we make it happen.
