Overview

The Melbourne DAY Tour takes you along the Yarra River to the best vantage points of the city, before turning inwards to sneak through the many colourful and intriguing alleys that riddle the city. From details to landmarks, this three-hour private tour teaches photography skills as well as encourages photographic development. On the Melbourne NIGHT Photo Tour we will have the opportunity to explore the cool waters of the Yarra river. With cars streaking in front of Flinders Street Station, all the way to the giant fireballs bursting from the Crown Casino forecourt. We know the best spots in Melbourne after dark, and we can teach you how to capture them all perfectly. Our tours are always private, so you and your group (or up to four people in total) will be able to go anywhere in Melbourne that tickles your fancy.

Sammy was our tour guide. She was friendly and very helpful. She began by shouting us a coffee and establishing what we wanted to learn. Then she took us to several nearby places to teach us exactly what we needed to learn including ISO, white...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
