Your private Made in Melbourne tour begins outside of Jewell Railway Station in Brunswick. (If you arrive early, nip over to Nice One coffee for delicious, locally roasted coffee.) This suburb is known for its laidback, offbeat vibe, and its multicultural crowd.
Your first set of stops will be at Melbourne “op shops” (North Americans know them as a “thrift stores”). Explore the bustling op shop scene as your private guide helps you to design a totally new look.
Next, you’ll meet local fashion designers who make clothing in and around the shops where they sell their unique designs.
Your private tour will also lead you down one of Melbourne’s most exciting roads, lined with Victorian architecture and a plethora of locally owned shops. Your guide will take you to meet a variety of shop owners who will share stories of their passion with you.
Later, discover a comic book store where all the books are hand-drawn on site, then nip around the corner to find a shop making custom tote bags from those same comic books.
Toward the end of your tour, you may be working up a hunger, so your guide will be happy to recommend a great spot for lunch.
