Discover Melbourne from a local’s perspective on a Melbourne city walking tour. Trace the rich history of Australia's cultural capital as you hear stories about traditional landowners and the European settlement and learn about the immigration and migrant policies that have shaped Melbourne's cultural diversity. Explore Melbourne’s famed laneways; familiarize yourself with some of Melbourne’s iconic architecture, including Federation Square, the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) and Flinders Street Station; and gain insight into Melbourne’s diehard sporting culture, as well its thriving music and art scene.
Federation Square, locally known as Fed Square, is one of the most ambitious architectural designs in Australia and covers an entire city block in Melbourne’s Central Business District (CBD), blending both the cultural heritage of Melbourne with civic purpose. Here is where your city walking tour will commence, with a brief introduction to the history of Melbourne. Follow Melbourne’s timeline from the original indigenous landowners to the immigration and migrant policies of the 1970s that shaped and formed the fabric of Melbourne’s rich culture.

Wander through Melbourne’s famed laneways and embrace the urban soul of the city. From fashion to food, the laneways are home to emerging and well-known local craftsmen and artisans. Soak up the atmosphere created by the café scene, smell the aroma of coffee and spices, and see a variety of urban visual art projects dotted around the lanes.

Boasting an international event calendar that most cities would envy, Melbourne is home to a sporting fever that grips the city. See where battles have been won and lost on the field at the Melbourne Cricket Ground or on the tennis court at Rod Laver Arena. Hear the stories of the infamous Melbourne Cup, during which an entire nation stops to watch a horse race.

The walking tour is approximately 2.5-miles (4-kilometers) long and is at a leisurely pace. You’ll discover hidden gems and explore the city like a local.
