​Christmas is over, it’s freezing and everything generally feels a bit miserable. What better way to escape this relentless cold spell than by taking the trip of a lifetime?

An event that captivates Australia and reverberates around the world, The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade sees 10,000 fabulous people take to the streets as they unite for a glittering explosion of pride in the heart of Sydney’s gay district. The festivities either side of the parade itself on 4th March are guaranteed to make this year’s Mardi Gras a truly unmissable experience.

Whether it’s dropping Down Under to party hard for the weekend or chilling out after in Sydney’s serene surrounds, an exclusive tour package with Premier Holidays and Philippine Airlines is the perfect way to celebrate this year’s festival in style.

Revelers will rendezvous at Heathrow Airport on 28th February, where they can have a pre-flight tipple or two in the Aspire Lounge before boarding Philippine Airlines’ non-stop flight to Manila, where after a smooth and speedy transit, the party will make the final jaunt south to Sydney where a party on arrival will set the scene with a signature sparkling Aussie welcome.

After settling into the 4-star Cambridge Hotel and acclimatizing to the Sydney sunshine, the party will head to the harbour for the Sydney BridgeClimb for an adrenaline-pumping, sky high experience with breathtaking views of the city. Back on terra firma, guests can explore the city and discover the culinary delights of its numerous restaurants and lively bars ahead of the big parade the following day.

Party guests needn’t worry about queues or crowds as the package includes exclusive Diamond Club access – a truly exquisite Mardi Gras experience with spectacular views and experience of the Parade at Taylor Square. With private bars, gourmet food, raised platforms, and toilets, this is truly the best place to take in the sensational sights and sounds.

To nurse those post-party jitters, a tranquil retreat from the city beckons. Guests can explore the surrounding areas by camper van at their leisure, with five nights in a Britz Venturer motorhome. Bask in the sunshine on a boozy wine-tasting tour of the Hunter Valley before exploring the Blue Mountains, a World Heritage site famous for the captivating azure glow of its Eucalyptus trees. Wherever the road takes you in New South Wales, it’s all yours!

Ditch the last dregs of winter now and make memories to last a lifetime at Mardi Gras!
