Day 1: City Walk & Group Dinner
This morning you will be given the Ultimate Gap Year orientation. Your guides will walk you through the essentials and get you set up with a local bank account, phone number and tax file number. Shortly after midday, we will be embarking on our first adventure: exploring the iconic laneways of Melbourne city.  We will wind down our first day on the lively riverside promenade of Melbourne's Southbank precinct. Here we will get to know our new mates at our Welcome Dinner
Day 2: Food & Drink Tour
Melbourne is known for its diverse range of cultures, a fact represented in the food options this city is famous for. Our second day is spent learning why… This morning we visit the historic city landmark known by the locals as 'Vic Market'. Located on the northern fringe of the city, this open-air market is a haven for Australian fruit and vegetables, as well as local and imported gourmet foods. In warmer months, these markets come alive and host midweek hangouts for locals. 
Day 3: Penguin Parade
Today we depart the city to embark on an overnight experience to the Mornington Peninsula and Phillip Island. We will explore spectacular Australian coastlines and beaches. Our night is spent watching the mesmerising Phillip Island Penguin Parade where up to 500 Little Penguins return ashore after a day’s fishing.
Day 4: Surfing & Aussie Wildlife
Surfing is a way of life in Australia and this morning we spend two hours learning how to ride a wave! The rest of the day is spent interacting with Australian wildlife as we get up and close with Kangaroos and Koalas.
Day 5: St Kilda
Today we find ourselves back in the city and spend some time exploring the beachside suburb, St Kilda. We will have the opportunity to try paddle boarding and visit the iconic cafés and venues on the famous promenade.
Day 6: Party Night!
Saturday is the perfect time to reflect on the week and begin planning the week to come. The local team will be on hand to assist you with writing your resume and exploring job opportunities. Tonight we join in on Melbourne's biggest bar crawl. What better way to spend your first Saturday night Down Under than getting to know the vibrant nightlife of your new home!
Day 7: Rooftop BBQ
Our final afternoon is spent lazing on a local rooftop overlooking the city with your new group of mates. We finish the week with an iconic Aussie BBQ and beers.
