Rugby Tours to Australia
Our rugby tours to Australia are unforgettable. Being one of – if not the most – popular tours taken by schools and groups, we have nailed the best places to compete, tournament fixtures, where to eat and stay.
It’s surprising for the Wallabies’ opponents to hear that rugby union is Australia’s fourth main sport, especially with a recent Rugby World Cup final under their belt. Their consistent displays are, in part, due to excellent weather and ideal training conditions across the country, which is why you should be considering a rugby tour to Australia.
Never has there been more flight options into Australia or such rich stopover options to break up this 24h journey Down Under.The next challenge is narrowing down the itinerary stops out of so many desirable locations. The warmth and beaches of Cairns lure many in whilst the traditionalists favour the Melbourne-Sydney-Brisbane route that ‘follows the sun’.
Wherever you end up there’s a sure fire guarantee that games will be competitive, the banter incessant and the celebrations lengthy and memorable.
