Australia’s undisputed capital of culture and ‘cool’ is a stunning blend of 19th Century grandeur, innovation, colour and creativity. Art, sport, architecture, design, food, music… if you love cities and maybe even if you don’t, you will love Melbourne. From bohemian Fitzroy to lovely seaside St. Kilda – from Little Italy to Little Saigon, travel between worlds and get acquainted with the many faces of Melbourne.
Suggested but highly flexible itinerary:
Be picked up from your hotel or be met at the airport and hit the ground running.
Take to the backstreets for a coffee fix somewhere wonderfully local and get to know your personable Localing host. Share a few tastes and interests to help make the experience personal.
Stretch your legs in Melbourne’s quirky lanes and Victorian arcades. Cruise the grand boulevards, get a lay of the land, hear a few stories and meet some interesting, creative locals.
Head to Little Italy for freshly whipped gelato or precision perfect pastry. Chat with the artisans and makers in kitchens, galleries and studios in Melbourne’s coolest local boroughs.
Fitzroy’s working-class origins and off-beat counter culture are a small part of the story. This is one of the world’s coolest neighbourhoods and we’ve got no qualms about proving it.
If you’re feeling it, pop into a speciality coffee roaster/cellar door to learn more about the city’s number one cultural obsession than you ever needed to know.
This is a private tour so you set the pace… squeeze in a few local markets and an attraction or two or hunt down a few unique pieces in home-grown boutiques.
Your Localing host will have you back at your hotel by 2 pm (start and finish times can be varied to suit your needs).
