Victoria – Explore Melbourne

Victoria – Explore Melbourne

Australia has a strong multicultural presence and this has helped shape the amazing cosmopolitan cities we see today. Victoria’s capital, Melbourne, is set on the banks of the Yarra River and is known for its lively city centre, as well as a fanatical love for the creative arts and good living.

In this 4 day/3 night itinerary, The Tailor will take you into the heart of Melbourne to explore the hidden places only the locals know about.


Plan your Australian adventure with our expert travel designers.


Days 1 – 4

Visitors appreciate Melbourne for its creative energy as well as its distinct enclaves like Chinatown, the Greek Quarter and Carlton (Italian quarter), home to cultural flavours, specialities and charm.

During your 4 days in Melbourne, a selection of tours and activities have been included to ensure you gain an insight to this vibrant city as well as have some time to relax.

  • Discover the lanes and arcades that Melbourne is famous for, showcasing local independent designers, quirky cafes, street art, architecture, and historical tales, all expertly guided by a true Melbourne local.
  • Get “inside and outside” to really experience the best of Melbourne. Start your day with a fun, relaxing bike ride in the great outdoors along the Yarra River taking in all of Melbourne’s delights – cruise past the MCG and Rod Laver Arena (home of the Australian Open) and the Royal Botanic Gardens. Shift gears and roll along Southbank bar and restaurant precinct, the Docklands and the impressive Crown Casino. After lunch learn what has shaped this sophisticated, yet approachable city. Explore the Golden Mile and heritage buildings, Federation Square, the Queen Victoria Market, Albert Park Lake and the beach suburb of St Kilda.
