About the Trip

Want to see Melbourne from a locals perspective? Melbourne isn’t just about eating and drinking, we’ve curated the best endorphin pumping experiences to make the most out of your weekend. You'll notice we name our locations using the language of the traditional custodians of the land. Naarm (Nairm, Narrm) is an Aboriginal word used by both the Wurundjeri (Woiwurrung) and Boonwurrung people of the Central Kulin Nation. Wurundjeri use this word to refer to the scrubland (Narrm) of the now Greater Melbourne CBD area. Boonwurrung people use this word to refer to ‘The Bay’ and refers to Port Phillip Bay area of Victoria.


Arrive into one of the most liveable cities in the world. 

For 1pm head to the famous Federation Square for a Birrarung Wiam Aboriginal Walking Tour. 


For the evening take a tram down to Saint Kilda beach for a beautiful sunset over the city. Have your own mini cake tour at the many patisseries and walk along the boulevard and down to the pier to see the local little blue penguin colony up close as they come in to rest for the night in the rocks. 


Your accommodation is right in the heart of the city, right next to Southern Cross Station. The hotel is very chic and you’ll never guess it’s the city’s only carbon neutral hotel.

It’s an early start as you’re picked up at 7am for your surf trip down the Great Ocean Road. Included in your learn to surf experience is equipment hire, guide, coach and lunch.

You’ll be dropped back in the city at around 3pm.

This evening ask us for recommendations for award winning dining options, theatre shows, comedy, drag, music or our Craft Beer Walking tour.

Your Melbourne visit wouldn’t be complete without an iconic Melbourne brunch, the morning is yours to tick off any last ‘must do’s’. 

For 1pm* it’s back to Federation Square for an afternoon sea kayak, one of the best ways to see Melbourne. The tour finishes at 3:30pm as you say goodbye to Melbourne.


* If your departure is early we can move your Sunday sea kayak to Saturday night for a twilight tour.
