Start your tour at the Eureka Skydeck, an 88-storey skyscraper that is home to stunning views of the city. Your guide will bring you to the top of the tower, pointing out key points of interest in the city and previewing where you will go next. After coming back down to earth, it’s time to dive into the cityscape.
First, a coffee. Your guide will explain what makes Melbourne coffee unique, what to look for in a barista, and some of the vocabulary to use when ordering a coffee. You’ll put your knowledge to the test by ordering a brew, then enjoying it with your group.
Next, it’s time to explore Melbourne’s famous street art scene. What used to simply be called “graffiti” has become a trendy artistic style, and the laneways of this city are filled with constantly evolving murals. Your guide will bring you to some of their favourites and explain how the movement has developed, exploring the work of these back alley artists until you’ve worked up an appetite.
And what better way to meet that appetite than with Melbourne’s multicultural food scene. Your guide will take you to their favourite local restaurant for a hearty sample of one of the many cuisines Melbourne is known for. Here your guide will tell you about the numerous waves of migrants who have helped to create the Melbourne we see today.
After you’ve finished eating, it’s time for a drink. Melbourne is filled with many fun and fabulous bars, but you need a local to tell you which ones are hot at this very moment. Your guide will take you to a trendy bar to finish things off with a beer (or soda) and a final chat.
By the end of your tour, you’ll be able to spot amazing art, cafes, restaurants, and bars like a local. But if you still need more tips, your local guide will be happy to offer up some suggestions for the rest of your stay.
