Full description

Explore the eastern side of the Melbourne Central Business District, home to some of our most famous and interesting laneways. This is the side of Melbourne most tourists and some locals never see.  Learn about the earliest founders, the cause of Melbourne love affair – and later fall out – with drinking, the rise of street art, a tragic case of miscarried justice, the 1851 gold rush, secret men’s clubs, and much more. Stop for drinks at three of Melbourne’s best bars, plus pass by a dozen or so more for you to jot down and visit another time. Spend about 30-45 minutes in each bar so you are not feeling rushed. Finally, receive a mystery gift at the end of the tour.
