We’ll check out two of Sydney’s most popular beaches and walk along coastal cliffs, keeping our eyes peeled for whale sightings off the coast. Game #1 in the evening against local Australian lacrosse club team.

We’ll spend the day out on the water exploring the Great Barrier Reef, one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World! Snorkeling is available, however, for the less adventurous our glass bottom boat will provide the next best thing!
Free beach day in Cairns! Optional activities include Esplanade Boardwalk, Swimming Lagoon, Botanic Gardens and more!
Morning flight from Cairns to Melbourne, which has been ranked the world’s most livable city for the last six years! We’ll check into our hotel and turn our focus back to lacrosse with an afternoon clinic with local youth players followed by Game #2 in the evening.
We’ll get a taste of Australia’s beautiful countryside with a day trip along the Great Ocean Road! This Australian National Heritage offers breathtaking views along a rugged coastline. We’ll go as far as Port Campbell National Park for an amazing photo op at the 12 Apostles.
Spend the morning exploring the famous Queen Victoria Market, the largest open air market in the Southern Hemisphere! You’ll find just about everything you can imagine from fresh produce, countless food stalls and an impressive arts and craft scene perfect for picking up souvenirs.
