Singles Holidays Guide Melbourne
Last revised: March 12 2020
Contiki tours are the best! Their tours are designed for under 35s, but there are resorts and other tour companies for all ages. It is great. Similarly aged people, most of who are single, and all in a great mood. You get to know people while seeing the world or taking it easy. Compare the options...
Ok, so here's where we're at... Contiki tours are awesome, but not everyone is aged under 35 and/or can afford to go overseas. Whilst we list some options below, ultimately, we want to partner with a resort to run singles holidays in Australia. Until then, here is what already exists...
Bus your way across Europe, America, Egypt or heaps of other exotic places, with a bunch of other under 35s, most of whom are single. So much fun. You get to know each other pretty well, see the world, and share good times. There is plenty of drinking, partying and stories about the night before too. The tours themselves are well priced but the international air-fares are the challenge for under 35s. The top tip: pace yourself - don't get Contiki cough from partying too hard in the first couple of days.
Other singles tours
There are European bus tours for 30-40s, 50-60s and 60+ singles. Too many to report here, but not so much for 40-50s. Go to Google for more details.
Backpacker resorts & hostels
Backpacker resorts and hostels attract young travellers from all over the world. You never know who you might meet by the pool or at the bar. Every place is different. A place somewhere in North Queensland might have more people relaxing around the resort during the day and in Surfers Paradise where they go to theme parks by day and nightlife later.
We did the GC over New Years. So many single 18-30s floating around. Not so many over 30s singles though at that time. Of course, Schoolies is the biggest 18-25s party in Australia. Other age groups are more prevalent throughout the remainder of the year.
Bali, Thailand, etc
Bali and Thailand are famous international destination because they are cheap. Because they are cheap, have nice beaches and loads of nightlife, plenty of young-ish singles from Australia go there.
Victorian coastal spots over Summer
Beaches, singles, Summer... need we say more? The Island, Lorne, Sorrento and other coastal areas fire up. Even places like Venus Bay, Inverloch and Wilsons Prom see plenty of singles.
Other Aussie coastal spots over Summer
Pretty well anywhere with a decent beach in Australia has singles on the beach by day and in the bars by night.
We're not experts on this, but we know there are singles cruises and have been on a cruise (that wasn't a singles cruise). There is tons to do on cruise ships. Many cruise companies have singles activities and arrange for singles to sit together at dinner. Ask your travel agent for more details.
Mt Buller and Falls Creek in Victoria and probably Perisher in NSW have ski runs and basically nightclubs/bars. You never know who you might meet on the slopes, at restaurants and at the nightspots. This is probably more of a thing for the 25s and over crew.
Ski slopes, bunjee jumping, white water rafting, jet boats and other adventures are what Queenstown is all about. Plenty of singles are right into adrenaline rushes and adventure, so this place is on their bucket lists.
