Melbourne city is home to many popular places of interest and attractions such as Federation Square, Eureka Tower, Royal Exhibition Building and the Old Melbourne Gaol, just to name a few. The best way to enjoy the sights of the world's most liveable city is to take a walk around the city. Thanks to the good folks at I'm Free Tours, you and your family can experience the city with a guide. To top this off, the walking tour is FREE.
The local tour guide will share stories about the history, culture and lifestyle of Melbourne as you transverse the painted laneways and stroll along Yarra River. There's the shopping strip of Bourke Street Mall, the heritage of State Parliament of Victoria, the iconic Flinders Street Station and even hidden bars to discover. You will also understand what makes Melbourne the arts capital of Australia.
The 2½ to 3 hour walking tours are open all ages and operate daily at 10.30am and 2.30pm except on Christmas Day. To meet the guide, head to the statue of Sir Redmond Barry in front of the State Library of Victoria and look out for someone in a bright green T-shirt. No booking is required but participation is on a first-come-first-served basis so find the guide as soon as you arrive. Large family groups of 10 or more should email the organisation in advance.
