On this diverse walking tour, you’ll get to experience a few of Melbourne's iconic laneways; meander through the Treasury and Fitzroy Gardens; walk to the Melbourne Cricket Ground; get some great views of Melbourne’s biggest sporting precinct (including Rod Laver Arena), and gain an appreciation of indigenous culture at Birrarung Marr. The experience is designed specifically for small groups so there is more opportunity for you to learn about Melbourne and enjoy time with other like-minded people. You will also get to experience Melbourne's 'coffee culture', as we'll take a break in one of the many cafes tucked away in the lanes. Maximum of 6 guests. Highlights include: • Walking through colourful laneways in the heart of the city. • Finding cafes and bars that are hidden in mysterious locations. • Treasury and Fitzroy Gardens, including Cook’s Cottage. • Indigenous artwork at Birrarung Marr. I have a personal connection with many of these places & look forward to sharing those stories with you. I also have a full-day Meander Melbourne, so if you have more time to spend check this listing as well: https://www.airbnb.com.au/experiences/298465
I'm an outgoing person who loves to travel & explore. My background is diverse. I’m a freelance travel writer, photographer & editor. I host Airbnb guests in my home & work part time at a Melbourne college. I volunteer in crisis intervention. Having lived in Melbourne for 30-plus years, I'm passionate about what this city has to offer & keen to show visitors some of the places I love. This tour is flexible, depending on participant interests, and I'm able to add some dates if required (please enquire via direct message). I'm also happy to take photos of you & give some tips during the tour. Please note: I've added this half-day experience as an alternative to my full-day Meander Melbourne Airbnb Experience (see this listing for reviews and the full-day option: https://www.airbnb.com.au/experiences/298465).
