Full description
The adventure begins with either pickup from your Melbourne hotel or with a meet-and-greet in Federation Square. Follow your guide on foot through the city’s famous laneways and arcades, which are bursting with authentic Melbourne Charm. On the walk, see the beautiful St Paul’s Cathedral and the iconic Flinders Street Station, then arrive at Degraves Street, a popular pedestrian laneway.

Next, explore the heritage Block Arcade and Royal Arcade, the oldest surviving arcade in Australia known for its elegant light-filled interior. Wander through the bustling Flinders Lane, home to boutique designers, trendy cafes, and bars, before arriving at colorful Hosier Lane, famous for its graffiti-covered walls.

After the walking tour, sit back and relax on board a coach for the second part of your sightseeing experience. Travel through the city and see a selection of Melbourne’s most iconic sights and landmarks including Parliament House, the State Library, Queen Victoria Markets, Law Courts Precinct, and the famous Melbourne hook turn. Pass by Melbourne’s Sports and Entertainment district, home to some of the biggest domestic and international sporting events including the Australian Open, then drive along the Australian Grand Prix track and see the GP Pit stop.

Continue the coach ride along the pretty tree lined streets of the suburbs and admire the rows of terraced homes, then see the Botanical Gardens and the Shrine of Remembrance. Finally, stop by the MCG where you might see some sporting stars during training, before returning to Federation Square where the tour ends.
