A half-day tour of this eclectic, stylish city including key attractions, laneways and arcades

Acacia’s private Melbourne city tour offers magnificent riches for the curious willing to lose themselves in hidden laneways and behind unmarked doors. Benefiting from an insider’s view, your Acacia guide will uncover unforgettable surprises tucked around every corner. From intricately detailed Victorian arcades to the technicoloured graffiti daubed on the brick walls of cobbled Hosier Lane, there’s so much to see and do.

Between sightseeing, grab an espresso while meandering Melbourne’s cosmopolitan laneways, then duck into cutting-edge art galleries and independent boutiques.

Learn fascinating insights about the city’s storied history, from gold rush fever to renegade bushrangers.  Admire the impressive dome of the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton Gardens, the oldest surviving example of its kind.

Taste the finest the city has to offer while perusing the rich and varied stalls of Queen Victoria Market then let Acacia whisk you to the bohemian seaside haven of St Kilda, where anything goes. Snap yourself posing by the iconic bathing boxes of Brighton Beach and return to your hotel refreshed by sea air.
