City Highlights and Foodie Tour

Come and explore Australia's culinary capital! Discover the city's foodie hot spots while learning about Melbourne's vibrant history.

Your cultural and gastronomic adventure will begin with a quick, approximate 15-minute taxi ride from the cruise ship pier to the Hotel Windsor where you will meet your tour guide. This hotel is an integral part of Melbourne's cultural and historical fabric. It was established in 1883 and predates many other great Victorian hotels worldwide and is the last remaining grand heritage hotel of its kind in Australia.

Meet your local, knowledgeable guide who will take you along to some of the most important landmarks in the city, such as Parliament House, the Royal Exhibition Building, Lygon Street and Fitzroy Gardens.

Take a guided walking tour of Melbourne's famous lane-ways and arcades and enjoy a coffee (on your own expense) in the bustling Degraves Street and experience the unique Melbourne lane-way culture. Travel past the MCG complex and learn about the history of the venue, then pass through the colorful Chinatown precinct taking in all the sights and smells of the area.

After enjoying Melbourne's architectural beauty, culture, and history, you will make your way over to Queen Victoria Market, where you will take part in the Ultimate Foodie Tour.

This tour allows you to meet and learn about the different vendors, gain an insight into the history and inner workings of the market as well as sample generous tastings as you make your way through the venue. Included in the tour is a market shopping bag with a voucher (valid at all market stalls), and the most incredible and comprehensive gastronomic experience you will be immersed in.
