Programma

On this diverse walking tour, you’ll get to experience a few of Melbourne's iconic laneways; visit the South Melbourne Market & Albert Park Lake; meander through the expansive Domain Parklands; explore Melbourne's biggest sports & entertainment precinct (including the Melbourne Cricket Ground & Rod Laver Arena), and gain an appreciation of indigenous culture at Birrarung Marr.

The experience is designed specifically for small groups (max 6 people) so there is more opportunity for you to learn about Melbourne and enjoy time with other like-minded people. You will also get to experience Melbourne's 'coffee culture', as we'll take a morning break in one of the many cafes tucked away in the lanes.

Highlights include:
- A walk through colourful laneways in the heart of the city.
- Browsing at South Melbourne Market, where there's a chance to sample jam donuts, pastries or the market's famous dim sims, and enjoy the many lunch options.
- Strolling alongside Albert Park Lake (home to the Australian Grand Prix).
- Incredible views of the Melbourne CBD from St Kilda Road.
- Secret gardens, such as Fern Gully in the Domain Parklands.
- Seeing sculptures of famous sporting personalities on the Melbourne Cricket Ground promenade.
- Indigenous artwork at Birrarung Marr.

I have a personal connection with many of these places & look forward to sharing those stories with you.
Other things to note
The emphasis of this tour is to enjoy good company while seeing a few sights. The walk is easy but lasts for 6-7 hours, so moderate fitness is required. I look forward to exploring Melbourne with you!

Hi there! I'm an outgoing person who loves to travel & explore. My background is diverse. I’m a freelance travel writer, photographer & editor. I host Airbnb guests in my home & work part time at a Melbourne college. I volunteer in crisis intervention. Having lived in Melbourne for 30-plus years, I'm passionate about what this city has to offer & keen to show visitors the places I love. This tour is flexible, depending on participant interests, and I'm able to add some dates if required (please enquire via direct message). I'm also happy to take photos of you & give some tips during the tour.

It was amazing experience with Karen. Her route and story telling was super. Wouldn't had been able to experience Melbourne this way without her expertise and knowledge. She was really thoughtful, friendly and full of energy. I loved her passion for Melbourne and attention to detail. I would totally recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting here, local or as a tourist, it will make your stay so special and nice

Great starting point for an introduction to Melbourne. Good lengthy walk. Visit to South Melbourne market short but ensured we returned on our own at a later date for a longer explore

Karen was a wonderful host. She had extensive knowledge of the city's history, architecture, sports teams and culture. Simply walking past the various buildings, parks, gardens, markets and alleys would not have given me the feeling of connection that I gained through Karen's storytelling. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to learn about Melbourne and all its uniqueness.

Our full day tour with Karen was a brilliant experience. The well planned route, local knowledge, great conversation & love of Melbourne made the day feel like being shown around by a friend or family member. The tour was thoughtfully planned and provided the perfect taste of everything Melbourne has to offer & is famous for. I can’t recommend the Meander Melbourne tour with Karen more highly. Thank you!!

I had wonderful day out with Karen, learning about the various sites and it’s history. Going thru the hidden lanes of Melbourne and sharing her own experiences of Melbourne. We have long conversations and it felt that I was walking the city with an old friend. Though it rained most part of our walk about, her warm personality made up the bad weather!
