About the Trip

Learn about Melbourne's rich Aboriginal history on a Birrarung Wiam walking tour, dine at the finest brunch establishments and taste local craft beer on a brewery tour of Collingwood. 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.

Itinerary

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. 

From Federation Square you can drop into an iconic laneway for lunch and take the city sightseeing bus for an easy getaround. Spend the afternoon seeing the latest exhibitions, shopping, or sightseeing.

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 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.

Start your morning with a typical Melbourne brunch. Then take a tram up to Collingwood, one of Melbourne’s oldest suburban areas. This afternoon at 2pm you have included a locally run Craft Brewery tour with tastings. You’ll hear all about the history of Australian brewing, visit hole in the wall breweries to taste unique beers and get to know the local area. 

This evening stay in the area for award winning dining options, theatre shows, comedy, drag, or music.

Based on your departure time and what events might be on we can send you some personalised recommendations of how to spend your time before heading home.
