How you support the local community:
Melbourne is known as the cultural capital of Australia for a reason! From the café and graffiti-lined laneways to the abundance of galleries and exhibitions on offer, Melbourne is a city with something to suit all tastes you'll begin your Melbourne tour by learning about the Indigenous art and culture of the First Nations people from the local area. We'll also explore Federation Square, home of ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) and the Ian Potter Centre. Then it's on to some of Melbourne’s most impressive street art as you wander through the open-air gallery that is Hosier Lane. We'll take a walking break and stop to try one of those famous Melbourne coffees, at one of our favourite cafes that only locals know about. Continuing, you'll then hear the history of some of the city’s most impressive buildings, including St Paul’s Cathedral, before being whisked away from the crowds to our favourite spot for an impressive view of the city. We'll then visit an interactive exhibition dedicated to Australian music and discover how Melbourne earned the title of Live Music Capital of the World. Finally, we'll finish our Melbourne city tour by taking in the impressive stained glass ceiling — the largest in the world — at the National Gallery of Victoria. After the tour you can decide whether you would like to enjoy one of the many exhibitions on display here or perhaps continue a little further to explore the Royal Botanic Gardens. Your local guide will be able to give you all the recommendations and directions you need to enjoy the rest of your time in the city.
