Understand life in one of the world’s most liveable cities with lunch at a leading Melbourne restaurant

Gain an insight into everyday life in one of the world’s most liveable cities by tapping the inside knowledge of an expert local guide. Venture into inner-city neighbourhoods, each with their own distinct personality – from the bohemian beachside playground of St Kilda, hipster-friendly Fitzroy, or the elegant Victorian splendour of Albert Park.

Begin your tour with a visit to the Queen Victoria or South Melbourne market for an insight into Melbourne’s famed liveability. Wander bustling meat, fish, and dairy halls sampling fresh oysters, artisanal cheeses and pastries, or browse unique, locally designed merchandise.

Visit colourful St. Kilda and browse Acland Street’s famed cake shops and eclectic boutiques. Admire heritage-listed buildings including the Palais Theatre and Luna Park before a walk along Brighton Beach to see the colourful bathing boxes that lace the shoreline. Return to central Melbourne via the Formula 1 Grand Prix circuit encircling Albert Park Lake taking in panoramic views of the city skyline.

Discover Melbourne’s labyrinth of laneways and arcades on foot. Walk cobbled stone streets to find hidden bars, gorgeous boutiques, art galleries and the incredible urban street-art the city is known for.

A city simmering with culinary creativity; Melbourne’s chefs have gained international reputation for excellence in experimenting with pristine local produce. Conclude your tour with a casual yet sophisticated lunch at one of the city’s leading restaurants before returning to your hotel.
