University Cricket Tour to Brisbane, Sydney & Melbourne
During their university Cricket tour to Australia, the players from Liverpool University visited Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne each with their own individual styles and cultures. Brisbane is the capital of the sunshine state of Queensland and, although it has a population of 1.3 million people, has a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The touring side found some great nightlife, world-class restaurants and riverside cafés. Vibrant and cosmopolitan, Sydney combines glamorous shopping and alfresco dining with historic sights and golden beaches. The relaxed, outdoor lifestyle centres around one of the most stunning natural harbours in the world. Melbourne is known as Australia’s Cultural Capital, and hosts a variety of events and finals, as well as a host of wining, dining and shopping possibilities. It is also well known for its sport, from the Australian Open Tennis, to the Boxing Day Test Match which the guys from Liverpool University attended during their cricket tour.
