Virat Kohli & Anushka Sharma’s Australian Trip Is Historic And Picturesque

Based on wherever Virat and Anushka will probably be travelling to in Australia, we’ve come up with an itinerary to make the trip as wholesome as possible. By Gayatri Moodliar

Alongside taking on Australia down under, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli have also used the abundant amount of time the Indian team has been spending in the country to explore.

It’s been back-to-back action when it comes to both teams, as a history-making test series is being followed by ODIs that have a precedent of being thrillers.

India defeated Australia for the first time ever in the test matches that concluded on January 7, and the latest ODI saw them equalise the score, leaving fans waiting with bated breath for the final on the 18th.

Since a trip shouldn’t be all work and no play (while playing), we rounded up some of the places the duo should visit while hopping between the Australian hubs. (Though social media shows that they already know how to lead balanced lives that involve becoming equestrians.)

While In Melbourne:

Yarra Valley

Yarra Valley, a sprawling seven-acre area that’s full of picturesque rolling hills and world-class vineyards, is a short drive from Melbourne and is host to plenty of stellar activities. One could take up hunting for the best cheese, or taking in the scenery by opting for a sunrise hot-air balloon ride.

Degraves Street

Melbourne is known for its winding paths and lanes that are home to an art-scene that’s making moves around the world. Degraves Street was one of the first of these to hit the bullseye. The cobblestoned-lane has cafes, studios and boutique shops, all of which are must-visits.

While In Adelaide:

Adelaide Himeji Garden

When in Australia, why not absorb some Japanese culture at the Himeji Garden, a space that’s dedicated to showcasing elements of nature in a way that highlights a Japanese dedication to nature and its religious significance to them.

Central Market

Known for the freshest produce, this popular spot is always bustling with activity. Combining food and culture in one large outdoor space, heading here will guarantee you get the latest of the season. If you head there early, you could even bag a tour of the market with one of the local traders.

While In Canberra:

Corin Forest

There are many ways to take in a forest; why not slide down it? Corin Forest has an Alpine slide that glides past the tall, slender trees, offering an inimitable visual treat.


Indulge in food that is contemporary yet rooted in a classic foundation at Aubergine, where the menu changes daily according to what’s in season and what the local farmers believe is currently at its prime. Oh, and there’s an award-winning wine collection.
