Have you ever been to a city and wondered what all the fuss was about? Or wasted time trying to find that cool local café you were told of, and ended up missing everything? Melbourne’s arcades and laneways hide many of these answers. As the original Laneways walk of the central City of Melbourne, this is the tour to really discover the inner heart of Melbourne. Discover local designers and specialty retailers, that often are only found in the city.
Discover artisanal and specialty retailers, that often are only found in the city. Some of the quirkiest cafes, independent designers, street art, architecture, and historical tales are found in these walkways.
Soak in the city via all your senses, and engage with passionate creatives. There is something for everyone, locals and visitors alike.
A walk in the city is not complete without a wonderful morning tea, at a local chocolate salon.
Your guide will showcase some of the laneways you may have heard about, but also many you may not know so well.
This is a tour with a few added indulgences. A little history, and attention to amazing architecture will inspire locals and visitors alike.

Your guide will ensure you have plenty of ideas for the afternoon, and assist with seasonal requests on the day too. Your guide knows Melbourne better than a guide book!
