What to Expect
South Melbourne Market and suburb discovery walking tour will provide you with an unforgettable half-day (4.5 hrs) walking and food tour that steps you into the real heart of the local suburb of South Melbourne - a buzzing, colorful market village with soul. It’s Melbourne’s coffee central and the place to visit for all things food, heritage, and culture. It's relaxed with small groups of no more than 8 people.

Every tour is carefully curated and changes regularly to ensure you have the best local experience available on the day, no rigid scripting here! Like visiting an old friend, your local host is your “someone in the know” for discovering the markets, food, culture, shopping, history and people of South Melbourne Market and the local suburb.

Your host promises to give you:

• A tour of Melbourne's oldest Market like no other, packed with stories, samples, tastings and time to explore
• South Melbourne's best coffee with a special behind the scenes experience
• Delicious, fresh sit down lunch and drink at a specially chosen local spot
• Rare insight into the history of the city and how the character of Melbourne has developed
• A tram ride to South Melbourne so you travel just like the locals
• Hidden historical buildings and homes discovery
• A glass of local Victorian wine at a classic South Melbourne icon
• Access to a selection of specially chosen boutiques that showcase local designers and artists
• The practical and beautiful Visitor gift pack

Your tour is designed to start at a time when you can enjoy the market without too many crowds (9:30 am). It finishes at a time that allows you to continue to enjoy the suburb's market, cafes, bars and shops for the afternoon or indeed head back to your hotel for a rest before the evening (2:00 pm).

Meeting Point

Meet at Southbank by the river at the corner of Yarra Promenade and Clarendon Street (in front of the Merrywell Restaurant and Bar, opposite the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre). Getting there: Head for tram stop 124a "Casino, MCEC, Clarendon Street" (routes 12, 96 and 109 stop here) Parking is available in Crown Casino but we think it's more stress free to take public transport if possible.
