This one is close to home and is a great way to see Melbourne from the water’s edge! Getting straight into it, this tour hits the sights immediately upon departing central Melbourne with a crossing of the Yarra River and a lap around Melbourne’s F1 Grand Prix Circuit, Albert Park Lake and a cruise along St. Kilda’s Fitzroy Street to the water. From there it is all vision and vistas as we head down the famous Beach Road for stops at Brighton’s bathing boxes, Green Point and the charming Cerberus Beach House for ice cream and tea or coffee by the shore at Half Moon Bay. Coming back the drive stops for photos at St. Kilda Pier and then a final refreshment at Mr. Hobson’s bar and cafe beside the Port Melbourne Pier. Tour completion can be made to the CBD, Carlton or even the Royal Botanic Gardens. And yes, this one can be booked for sunset and all the photo ops that provides! Stops will see me relive previous life as a photographer, with a gallery of pics available at the end. Your party of four can be collected from out front of the Princess Theatre for a private tour driven by your d’Luxe host, John Frostell – local Chevrolet enthusiast and drive-to location expert. A ‘Bay’ tour heads: CBD > Albert Park Lake > Fitzroy Street > Beach Road > Brighton Bay (bathing boxes) Green Point > Half Moon Bay > St. Kilda Pier > Port Melbourne Pier > Return and takes 3 hours (half day)
I own, maintain, drive and tour a pair of matching 50s American Chevrolet cars that have been my passion for many years. With my knowledge of Melbourne and its surrounding areas I am able to provide insights and opportunities for traveller guests who are looking for unique experiences and perspectives to this lovely part of Australia.

Additional 'sunset' tours from 5pm daily until Saturday 4 April. This is a very relaxed and low energy experience: gentle driving ... a little bit of strolling at sightseeing stops ... and that is about it. If you like the sand, then be prepared to kick your shoes off at a few of the stops too!
