Melbourne is known as the culture capital of Australia for a reason! From the café and graffiti-lined laneways to the abundance of galleries and exhibitions on offer, Melbourne is a city with something to suit all tastes. Join this private tour to discover the city's street art scene through the eyes of locals.
You'll begin your tour by learning about the Indigenous art and culture of the First Nations people from the local area. You'll also explore Federation Square, home of ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image) and the Ian Potter Centre. Then it's on to some of Melbourne’s most impressive street art as you wander through the open-air gallery that is Hosier Lane. Time for a coffee break at a locals' favorite cafe.
Continuing, you'll then hear the history of some of the city’s most impressive buildings, including St Paul’s Cathedral. You'll then visit an interactive exhibition dedicated to Australian music and discover how Melbourne earned the title of Live Music Capital of the World. Finally, you'll wrap up your tour by taking in the impressive stained glass ceiling — the largest in the world — at the National Gallery of Victoria. You can decide whether you would like to enjoy one of the many exhibitions on display here or perhaps continue a little further to explore the Royal Botanic Gardens. Your local guide will give you all the recommendations and directions you need to enjoy the rest of your time in the city.
