Much of the real fun of an Australia package vacation lies in experiencing the many elements the culture has to offer, and there are few events more quintessentially cultural than Melbourne’s annual International Arts festival. This year’s festival, scheduled for October 8 through October 23, is set to be a multimedia experience encompassing lightshows, musical compositions, science and emotion, and will be sure to leave no heart unmoved.
A vacation package set in Melbourne around the festival of course requires first class accommodations, and Melbourne can deliver with pride. There are numerous high class, luxurious hotels in the city, many within walking or short transit distance of the festival’s grounds. The festival homepage also lists a number of dining establishments ranging from the excitement of low-cost pubs, to the more intimate and sumptuous extravagance of high dining. Foods and wines from all over the world, particularly the legendary local wines and cuisine are all at hand for the taking, meaning guests will neither go hungry or without delight as they take in all that Melbourne’s musical legends have to offer.
