Central Melbourne Walking Tour
From US$37.89
Downtown Melbourne is home to some of the city’s most beautiful landmarks, but it is also renowned for its atmospheric streets, cobbled laneways, and historic arcades. This walking tour ensures you don’t get lost in the maze-like streets and lets you discover Melbourne through the eyes of a local guide, with plenty of tips for where to eat, drink, and shop in the city.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in Federation Square meeting and enjoy a brief introduction to Melbourne before setting out to discover the city.

During an around 2.5-mile (4-kilometer) walking tour, pass historic landmarks such as Flinders Street Station and Melbourne Town Hall, and listen as your guide tells you fascinating facts and entertaining stories along the way. See the lively Southbank district, enjoy views along the Yarra River, and learn about Australia’s passion for sport as you stop by the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Along the way, explore Melbourne’s famous laneways, where you’ll find boutique shops, atmospheric cafés, and beautiful 19th-century shopping arcades. With your guide on hand to offer recommendations and answer any questions, it’s the ideal opportunity to get some tips for where to eat, drink, or shop during the rest of your stay.

After stopping to enjoy a tea, coffee, or hot chocolate at a local café, your tour ends back at Federation Square.

We really enjoyed this tour. However, we were just 5 minutes late, and the tour departed from the meeting spot. We couldn't find the 7-11! So that was frustrating, but luckily we found the group. It was a long tour, but our guide knew how...More
