About Walks 101

Walks 101 is independently family owned and operated by an American/Australian couple who have made Melbourne their home after years of travelling and living in Europe. After noticing a lack of quality, free walking tours in Australia, our team of tour guides began working on bringing these wonderful tours to Australia.

Launching in Melbourne, the goal of Walks 101 is to provide an opportunity to everyone to join a walking tour. If you’ve never been on a free walking tour or don’t know if it’s for you, we welcome you to join our flagship tour, the Free Walking Tour of Melbourne, to serve as an entry point to find out about the city and experience a walking tour without any financial risk. We’re confident that you’ll have a great time and want to join us for more, so we also offer a number of paid walking tours that typically include extras like access to local attractions and food and drink.

100% Authentic Melbourne


"It was the best free or paid tour I have ever been on. John was funny, highly entertaining, adaptive, and informative about Australia in general and Melbourne specifically. He was able to give us honest recommendations about things to do in the city. There was no pressure to tip the tour guide but he well deserved it." - Kenz1996 (TripAdvisor review, Aug 2018)

"Tristan was an amazing and passionate guide: he showed us the Melbourne he loves and it was a great moment!" - Leopold (TripAdvisor review, Aug 2018)

"Have never done a walking tour before AND I'm from Sydney but with Kellie's contagious enthusiasm and quirky info about Melbourne, I'm already both a Melbourne fan and a walking tours convert." - Swimming2018 (TripAdvisor review, Aug 2018)
