There are some wonderful guided walks in Melbourne but most are quite costly. So, it's worth knowing about a FREE program of monthly walks that explore the heritage treasures of the City of Port Phillip.

The walk leaders are knowledgeable and they share the cultural, architectural, art and social histories of this fascinating area.

They also tell the amazing stories of the people who have lived here adding lots of human interest to each walk.

The great thing is that they mix up the topics so each monthly walk is different.
