We went out with a guide who happens to be an artist and had a wonderful time. Besides seeing Victoria Market and various neighborhoods, we got to explore the alleys filled with street art that Melbourne is noted for. We had a wonderful time!

There were 6 of us arriving by cruise ship and wanted to do a day tour of Melbourne.

We drove the Great Ocean Road with a fabulous guide, Peter Lowrey. He was a wonderful driver, great sense of humor, many facts about the areas passed, attentive to our needs, and his recommendation for lunch was perfect! We completed the trip by taking a plane to see the Apostles--what an amazing experience. Recommend this (and Peter) to everyone.

My husband & I went on a private wine tour of the Yarra Valley. Our guide (Garth) was charm personified and very knowledgeable about wine. He also adapted the tour to our preferences and ensured that we visited a good number of cellar door tastings, some of which had good UK shipping options. We rounded off the day with a... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
