We enjoyed a private day long tour of Great Ocean Road with Jeff as our guide. The scenery is magnificent, exceeding the Oregon Coast for those familiar with that area. Jeff was a fantastic guide and we truly enjoyed spending the day with him as much as the incredible scenery he took us to. He also saved our trip when... More

Our first time in Melbourne couldn't possibly have been more fantastic, thanks to Jeff and Dillon! Two amazing days with two amazing private tour guides. First day with Jeff on the Yarra Valley tour was filled with walking, talking, food, wine and coffee. He introduced us to some of Melbourne's hidden treasures as well as "must see" sites. Extremely knowledgable... More

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!

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.
