Sample local treats along the way and learn about the history and culture behind one of Australia’s coolest cities.
What to Expect

Be met at your hotel by your well-informed and connected local guide for a 10 am start (recommended). Together, you will seek out the best local coffee for a quick insight into our number one cultural obsession. This is a great time to share some of your tastes and interests with your guide so they can be made a feature of your uniquely tailored experience

Discover Melbourne’s hidden city and the passionate entrepreneurs at the heart of local laneway culture. Leaf through old books and maps, jazz records and vintage clothing. Sample local treats and native flavours. Hear the tales of a strange, offbeat city of radicals, prospectors, and adventurers who all wound up together in this far-flung corner of the world.                                             

Venture out beyond the tourist droves and city lights, to Melbourne’s working-class heart. Visit the micro factories, studios, and warehouses that power Melbourne’s creative economy. Learn about green coffee bean selection and how to temper chocolate, visit street art galleries and local milliners, admire the craftsmanship, knowledge, and passion that have become the calling cards of ‘made in Melbourne’.

- on full-day tours -

Enjoy a tasty local lunch at a quintessentially Melbourne café. These are a point of pride and about as Melbourne as ‘footy’. This is a great chance to really get to know your guide, quiz them on local culture and the best way to spend your time in Melbourne.

In the afternoon you might like to explore our cultural or sporting precincts, our gorgeous riverfront gardens or visit a local market. The waterfront neighbourhood of St. Kilda is perfect for a stroll and delicious treats. Visit legendary punk rock venues, community gardens, and the city’s best bakery and keep your eyes out for penguins by the pier.
