Countdown To England's Battle Down Under
With less than 100 days until the Vodafone Ashes Series 2010-11, there is still time for fans to experience one of cricket’s most celebrated rivalries with a carnival atmosphere running through the stands.
Dating back to 1882, the 2010-11 Series looks set to be the most competitive yet with Australia out for revenge after England’s heroic win last year.
There is still the chance for fans to book their packages to watch England retain the title on Aussie soil.
Combining the thrill of visiting Australia during its summer months with the excitement of the cricket makes for a sporting holiday of a lifetime.
Some of the highlights of touring include Christmas Day lunch at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, New Year’s Eve spent on an exclusive cruise in Sydney Harbour and cricket forums with former England Internationals. In addition there is the opportunity to explore the country’s iconic destinations such as the Great Barrier Reef and Ayers Rock.
