Full description
Go on a beer expedition at the Carlton Brewhouse, Australia's largest brewery and home to some of the country's favorite beers, including Carlton Draught and Victoria Bitter. Take a guided brewery tour, and enjoy included beer tastings.

Make your own way to the brewery, a mere 5 kilometers (roughly 3 miles) from Melbourne CBD. Once there, follow the river of beer through which 150,000 liters (39,626 gallons) of fresh beer flow every day. You’ll be guided through 150 years of brewing history and knowledge as you experience the sheer scale of this iconic facility on the banks of the Yarra.

After your guided tour, return to the brewhouse to sample the brewery's favorite fresh beers. If you wish, savor some lunch, play in the brewer's yard, or enjoy some fun and games on the touchscreen displays.
