See the University of Melbourne campus like never before
Tourists and residents alike should make time to have a wander around the University of Melbourne's Parkville Campus as there is some stunning architecture ranging from heritage to contemporary.
And here is the perfect opportunity to have a guided walk where you can learn so much about Melbourne's first university.
This event is partly a walking tour and partly a conversation over coffee. You will explore the University of Melbourne's beautiful Parkville campus while learning the hidden stories behind the origins of its most significant architectural features.
Much of Melbourne's early history is tied up the university. You may be surprised to learn that Melbourne's broader origin myths bear striking similarities to the foundation stories of Rome and other major cities of the ancient Mediterranean.
Now that would be interesting to know about.
Even if you already think you know the Parkville campus, you may be surprised to discover some gems that you have overlooked until now.
