The Melbourne City Centre marks the area where the city was founded in 1835, with the Central Business District being the financial centre. A walking tour of the CBD takes you around Federation Square, home to museums, galleries, restaurants and bars. Sports enthusiasts can explore the Melbourne Cricket Ground and Rod Laver Arena.

A guided tour will take you through alleys and laneways around Hoddle’s Grid to give you a comprehensive picture of Melbourne’s culture and 180 year old history.

Melbourne’s walls are a riot of colors, with eye-catching graffiti by several budding local artists. Make your way through the iconic pedestrian way of Hosier Lane, with side walls covered in funky, ever-changing organic works. Track how many Space Invaders you come across, and admire works by Banksy, Shepard Fairey, and Blek le Rat on a street art walking tour.

Melbourne is a melting pot where you can sample refined international cuisine and great brews. There are several walking food tours, for chocolate, dumplings, cupcakes and pastries. Melbourne’s love affair with coffee traces its origins back to early 20th century, but World War 2 is what created the bean boom with the mass influx of immigrants from Europe and the Mediterranean. Take a coffee tour through some of the charming cafes to understand why Melbourne is voted amongst the best cities in the world for the beverage.
