Central Melbourne Walking Tour
From US$36.47
Downtown Melbourne is home to some of the city’s most beautiful landmarks, and it’s renowned for its atmospheric streets, cobbled laneways, and historic arcades. You’ll never lose your way on this guided walking tour that lets you discover Melbourne through the eyes of a local, with plenty of tips for where to eat, drink, and shop in the city.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in Federation Square and hear 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 with boutique shops, atmospheric cafes, and historic 19th-century shopping arcades. With your guide on hand to offer recommendations and answer any questions, you can ask for tips on 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 cafe, your tour ends back at Federation Square.
