"The purpose of Waving The Flag is to encourage more people to travel globally to support and express their pride in Australia and Australian Cricket in a fashion that does not isolate from the cultural or sporting influences that make each cricket tour unique, whilst promoting and maintaining positive social and sporting relations between Australia and the countries we visit."


THE 3RD TEST IS NOW IN DOMINICA NOT GUYANA!. Any reference to Guyana in the Tour Info or Tours should be interpeted as DOMINICA in location only.

Testimonial from Nicole Amelsvoort -

"As a solo female traveller, my first Flag experience was far from intimidating with a large percentage of the group female, many also travelling solo. I found that many on tour had flagged before and those first timers like myself had been welcomed into this ever expanding family!" Read more...

Welcome to your (if you can believe it) 'Sparrow's Sugar Caned Tour of Vibrant St Vincent '. I had nothing to do with the naming, but believe it a very apt drop to start your 2012 West Indies Sugar Caned Tour. As you have booked your own flights to suit, no matter what time you arrive we'll meet you at Kingstown's E.T. Joshua International Airport (unless the new one is open) buzz you around the airport, past the cricket ground, up the hill, and down the other side to our exceptional beachside hotel on the west coast less than 10mins from the baggage carousel.

You will be here for 7nights for 3 games of passionate one-day cricket at nearby Arnos Vale. We will have a couple of beachside dinners through the week and importantly thrill to a majestic snorkel and lunch cruise on the famed Tobago Cays. St Vincent is known for its lush mountainous rainforest and mighty Soufriere Volcano to which we will also include a day hike up and into the crater. St Vincent is subdued and tranquil but no less we will do everything we can to spice up your nightly entertertainment with as much 'Sparrow's Sugar Cane' as you care to pace yourself with.

MY ARRIVAL FLIGHT: March 21 on LIAT Flight LI310 @ 0745am from St Vincent

Welcome to your 'Chairman's Reserve Sugar Caned Tour of Luscious St Lucia', one of the Caribbean's quintessential destinations. Whatever time you have booked to lob we'll meet you at Vigie Airport* and rocket you just 2km north to Morgan Bay, and one of St Lucia's finest all inclusive resorts!

The Flag has just secured a phenomenal deal so you will receive 7 nights in this 5star resort inclusive of breakfast, lunch, dinner, AND beverages, everyday! This is fantastic resort is normally US$2373pppn without a cricket tour, but I'm thrilled to say your St Lucia Cricket Tour with The Flag is still Aud$1690, inclusive of everything we offer. At Morgan Bay you can soak up the atmos and aqua of 4 freshwater pools, 4 restaurants, 5 bars, and white sandy beach for 7nights and 3 short-order games of cricket at pleasant Beausejour Stadium, just 6km from your pillow. I can't wait!!

St Lucia is filled with fantastic sights and we will get you to the best by sailing down the west coast past quiet fishing villages to the quaint former capital, and very French village of Soufriere and scintiallting views of the famous Pitons. Here we jump ship and drive 'into the Volcano' and sulphur springs, head to Toraille waterfall for a plunge before plunging into lunch and rum-punch. Sailing again, we'll swim in the sparkling waters of Anse Cochon before sailing for a sunset cruise to the resort and dinner.

We also have two dinner parties and three games of cricket which we will get you to and back, and leave a day in between to tee-up at the near-by golf-course (US$200+). St Lucia is scintillating and adrenalin filled as it is filled with tranquility and relaxation. We offer you all that we can in the short time we're there, with a pleasant under-coat of indulgent 'Chairman's Reserve Sugar Cane'.

*Vigie Airport in the north is where small inter-island flights (and from San Juan) land and where you want to be. Hewanorra, in the far south, takes the big jets. If you land in Hewanorra we may ask you to wait for other Flaggers to arrive as it is a 2hour drive north to your hotel.

Welcome to your 'Cockspur Sugar Caned T20 Tour of Barbados'. If you're doing the whole tour (and you really should be), this 3 night tour will give you a taste of Barbados in readiness for the 1st Test 'Mount Gay Sugar Cane 1st Test Tour' in 9days time. Coming from St Lucia (or if you are arriving for the first time) we will get you from Grantley Adam's International Airport and into St Lawrence Gap for three hot nights as we seek to enjoy the 2nd T20.

Welcome to your 'Guavaberry Sugar Caned Tour of Sparkling St Martin/Maarten', the gourmet and planespotting capital of the Caribbean. This add-on will have us entertained for 5nights on the world's smallest 'shared land mass' and very surprisingly instead of the 3-day Tour game in Barbados. This 'must do' Tour wil break our 16-scheduled days in Barbados (as great as Barbados is!).

Landing in Dutch St Maarten and living in French St Martin, aside planespotting while sunning our booties on Maho Beach at Princess Juliana Airport, we include one huge dinner in the dynamic BBQ shacks of Grand Case, and a day cruising to neighbouring Anguilla.

Otherwise enjoy incredible duty free and endless 'happy hours' in Phillipsburg (the Dutch side), indulge in the culinary wizardry of Marigot (the French side), dive or snorkel some of the Caribbean's finest waters (join us on Tobago Cays in St Vincent for the best), deepen the all-over tan on Orient Beach (both sides), or visit (optional) exclusive nearby islands of Saba, St Barts to help tick off 4 new countries with one trip! From blow your hair back airline arrivals to nudist beaches, over-indulgent happy hours to sumptuous a-la-carte restaurants, from cafe au lait to Dutch language faux pas, St Martin/Maarten, C'est Lekker (It's good! I mean, really good!)!

Welcome to your 'Mount Gay Sugar Caned Tour of Brilliant Barbados'. As you have booked your own flights to suit, no matter what time you arrive we'll meet you at Bridgetown's Grantley Adam's International Airport with a warm welcome & refreshing beverage and transfer you to our exceptional hotels in the heart of St Lawrence Gap, the south coast hot spot for restaurants, nightlife and parties (although there are plenty of quiet times and places of escape for those less nocturnal, so to speak).

You will be here for 8nights with breakfast included to base yourself for 5 day cracking days at famed Kensington Oval. We will transfer you each day to the cricket, you just have to get up, alas. Down the road is the Barbados Golf Club if you feel like teeing up, if not flapping about on Dover Beach. Nightly entertertainment will be organised, as will your post match party cruise which includes as much 'Mount Gay Sugar Cane' as you can stomach.

Welcome to your '1919 Sugar Caned Tour of Tremendous Trinidad'. When you lob into Trinidad's Piarco International Airport we will be waiting with beverage and transport to zip you through bustling Port of Spain to the leafy suburb of St Ann's adjacent the expansive Queen's Park Savannah across where many a cricket supporter has walked through the year's to and from Queen's Park Oval. It will have been 9-years since we walked that walk but we will do it again in 2012 as I'm sure it's still quicker than waiting in traffic around the Savannah!

Along with 2 dinner parties, for 8nights we will rock on in the Caribbean's largest city that is filled with dynamic bars, funky clubs, flashy casino's, and classic cricket at 'The Oval' where the staple lunch diet of chicken (or veg) roti (massive bread wrapped curry parcels) is the way to fill up before a long night on the tiles. Port of Spain isn't known for its beaches (Maracas Bay is the closest beachy playground and worth a 10km cab ride) so if not the pool at our superb hotel, immersing into its rhythmic people, heady music, and proud culture is how to enjoy Trini and its mother's milk like '1919 Sugar Cane'.

Welcome to your 'Macoucherie Sugar Caned Tour of Dynamic Dominica'. Landing in Dominica's Melville Hall Airport we welcome you to the 'Nature Island' with the world's highest concentration of volcanoes, and zip you to the quaint capital of Roseau through the Northern and Central Forest Reserves filled with dynamic waterfalls and hot springs.

The day before the game we have a rainforest adventure taking in Roseau's Botanic Gardens, a ride on the Ariel tram through the rainforest tree tops, loads of swimming under waterfalls, and a touch of hiking. Hiking Dominica's breathtaking (literally) interior has greater interest to many than the coral filled waters that the Caribbean reknown - if there is no cricket, but thankfully now there is.

The West Indies will host Australia in only the island's 2nd Test match at the new Windsor Park, a short walk from our fantastic west coast hotel where we'll kick back for 7 hot evenings. One night will include The Flag's cool Trivia event and an almost ubiquitous Karaoke session, and two Flag dinner parties. If the match ends early, we can take a ferry to a neighbouring island for lunch in another country washed down with new blend of Sugar Cane. All such highlights will need a volcano size bottle of 'Macoucherie Sugar Cane' to celebrate. You Beauty!!
