About This Melbourne Tour
Stylish, high-octane, and character-rich, Melbourne is Australia’s culture capital; dotted with Gold Rush era architecture, edgy art, live music venues, and top-tier museums. Its neighborhoods, hip Fitzroy and picturesque St Kilda among them, give way to inner-city hotspots and hidden urban and suburban places worth exploring.
As you navigate beautiful Great Ocean Road or wander along tree-lined boulevards amid vibrant street art, it's easy to see why this coastal locale served as the setting for the long-running soap opera, "Neighbours." Keep your camera at the ready during a guided, behind-the-scenes tour of the shows set, visiting Pin Oak Court (the fictional Ramsay Street cul-de-sac) tucked within the (equally fictional) Melbourne suburb of Erinsborough.
In addition to its beauty, Melbourne is the world's only city with five international standard sporting facilities. Three of them have retractable roofs – a good thing given the city's temperate and unpredictable weather patterns. While you're in town, watch a cricket match, bet on some ponies, or catch a game of"footy," Australian Rules Football. Even Formula One car racing features in this sports friendly city.
If that's not your cup of tea, change the pace and meander through the tranquil Royal Botanical Gardens. Or, visit the wildlife-rich Melbourne Zoo and vibrant, produce-laden Queen Victoria Market to see how locals go about their daily lives and see what local delights dot the market.
Whatever you decide, this highly walkable and endlessly fascinating city promises to inspire you at every turn.
Every night, tens of thousands of grey-headed flying foxes (fruit bats) surge out of their daytime roosting places and take to the skies in search of pollen, nectar, and fruit. Of course, they need to wash it all down somehow. So, don't be surprised if you catch the bats dipping their bellies into the water while flying. Afterward, they lick the moisture from their fur. How’s that for convenience?
Please make your way to 570 Flinders Street, Melbourne to meet our GoBe Rep.
