      Wondering what to do in Melbourne?

      See Melbourne for yourself, and you’ll immediately understand why locals have dubbed it Australia’s own “European enclave”. A city of culture, creativity, and excellent coffee, this dynamic metropolis offers a range of delightful things to do and unique places to see. With its tangible atmosphere of effortless authenticity and bohemian flare, Melbourne is a city that doesn’t try to be cool – it just is. No matter where your city tour takes you – from the seaside to the bustling CBD to the city’s inner grid (a treasure trove of arcades, alleys, and graffiti-plastered lanes lined with galleries) – you’ll never struggle to find things to do in Melbourne.

      Not your average city

      If you were to picture the stereotypical city, it wouldn’t look like Melbourne. A labyrinth of laneways penetrates right into the center of city blocks housing excellent restaurants, cool bars, trendy galleries, and more amazing things to do in Melbourne. Away from these narrow alleys, Melbourne still delivers its distinctive style. Seaside trams slowly trundle past Art Deco architecture, steel-and-glass skyscrapers hide bars blasting live music, and miles of green parkland host flea markets and festivals. One thing’s for sure: you’ll never run out of things to do in Melbourne.

      A world of flavors

      Waves of immigration from Europe and Asia have created in Melbourne a vibrant melting pot of diversity starkly visible within its charismatic neighborhoods. With so many nationalities calling the city home, it’s no surprise experiencing the food scene is one of the best things to do in Melbourne. You’ll never be far from the ethnic enclaves housing Asian, Ethiopian, Indian, and Middle Eastern eateries that have put the city on Australia’s culinary map. And if you want authentic Aussie fare? Melbourne is the country’s culinary hub of top chefs specializing in native ingredients.

      Australia’s capital of cool

      Narrow laneways open up a world of fascinating things to do in Melbourne that cement its status as one of the coolest cities on earth. Between old-school paperback bookstores and street art-covered alleys leading to hipster cafés, you could spend months trawling the city’s inner grid and not even scratch the surface. Whether you sift through vinyl in AC/DC Lane (named after the iconic Australian rock band), browse vintage clothing stores, or explore unique galleries like Mailbox Art Space, where every tiny piece is tucked inside a mailbox, the things to do in Melbourne never disappoint.

        A really great walking tour. Donna was fantastic. She knew a lot about Melbourne and took us to all the places we wanted to see and some extra places. It was very interesting and we learnt a lot. Thank you Donna for a lovely experience.

        Chris was very open to doing what we wanted. In our case coming from out of the country, he asked for our interests before we ever arrived and designed a walking tour for us!

        Our tour host, Chris, conveniently and promptly met my husband and I at our hotel lobby. We did not receive an introductory email which Chris sent...no worries.....he conducted an impromptu interest survey before we "rolled." Based on our responses and my mobility limitation (I use a manual wheelchair pushed by my husband), Chris guided us around older, as well as, trendy areas of attraction around Melbourne. He provided historical, unique, and curious information about the sites. Admirably, Chris knew the location of public lifts to access different street levels by the Yarra River. We were pleased that Chris did not insist on a set route, rather, prioritized our likes and needs. Chris's varied life experiences initiated fun conversations on a number of topics. Overall, an enjoyable private tour of Melbourne with a knowledgeable, personable and friendly host.
