When it comes to vibrant city life, Melbourne is unparalleled. It is also unique among Australian cities to have so much on offer, so close at hand. Wander the lanes, explore the boroughs, drive through rolling hills and native eucalyptus forests, sample stunning local wines and farm gate produce, cuddle a koala, dip your toes in the Southern Ocean – all in a single, beautiful day.
Suggested but highly flexible itinerary:
Be picked up from your hotel or be met at the airport and hit the ground running – this is an excellent ‘day one’ experience.
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.
Enjoy a tour of inner Melbourne, taking time to get orientated both geographically and historically. Wander a labyrinth of vibrant lanes and gorgeous Victorian arcades.
Cruise past the colourful bayside neighbourhood of St. Kilda to meet passionate local characters, artists and business people.
Take a short scenic drive to the Mornington Peninsula, one of Australia’s prettiest coastal wine regions. Try a few classic pinots and premium chardonnays before tucking into a delicious local lunch.
The region is renowned for farm-to-plate experiences at restaurants and cellar doors. Enjoy a casual cafe lunch or something more elegant among rolling hills and sprawling vineyards.
Spend the afternoon on a coastal walking trail or with kangaroos and koalas at a local wildlife sanctuary, or sampling local wine and cheese with the makers… the choice is yours!
Your Localing host will have you back in Melbourne by 6 pm.
(start and finish times can be varied to suit your needs).
