“We have completed our third farming tour with C R McPhail. They have been China, Canada/Alaska Cruise, Central Europe and have enjoyed each one. The programs arranged for the tours are well thought out and have a very good mix of farm, agricultural related information meetings and sight seeing visits. The tour leaders are extremely competent and helpful. The same goes for the overseas guides so it all comes back to the excellent planning carried out by C R McPhail Ltd. We would have no hesitation in recommending an overseas farming tour with C R McPhail Ltd. Everything is taken care of and this lets you enjoy the trip.”
The state of Victoria is Australia’s second smallest state but certainly packs a punch in terms of agricultural diversity, stunning scenery and natural attractions.
New for 2020, this tour commences in Melbourne, a European style city built from the proceeds of the famous goldrushes of the 1850s. The itinerary takes you to the lush dairying country in Gippsland, east of Melbourne, the spectacular High Country and then through Ned Kelly country to the historic port of Echuca on the Murray River.
Travelling southwards through the gold-mining towns of Bendigo and Ballarat, you’ll see productive cropping country and sheep farms and further south you’ll see spectacular coastal scenery along the Great Ocean Road and Shipwreck Coast. The tour concludes in Melbourne, in time for all highlights of the Lexus Melbourne Cup Day – the race that stops a nation!
