Pre Tour

We will be organising an optional Pre-Tour in Melbourne and Victoria before the Venture starts.

Arrive in Melbourne on 27 December 2011 having flown from the UK on Christmas Day (later arrivals by arrangement and will need to organise their own transfers from the airport to meet up with the Contingent).

Pre-tour in Melbourne and Victoria with possible activities including a trip along the Great Ocean Road, watching the penguins come ashore on Phillip Island, a day at St Kilda beach, Melbourne Aquarium, a tour of the MCG and Sports Museum, the Science Works Museum or a visit to Ramsay Street plus New Year’s Eve in Melbourne.

Depart Melbourne and arrive Tasmania on 3 January 2012 and transfer to the Venture site for the opening ceremony.

Expeditions are between 5 and 9 January 2012 and then back to the main site for on and offsite activities until 14 January.

The Pre-Tour fee will include accommodation, food and activities in Melbourne from 27 December 2011 to 3 January 2012 and transfers from Melbourne to the Venture.
