The country's best restaurants can also be found in Melbourne's laneways. You will also see the history of Victoria where settlers arrived to search gold, and you will taste local produce and wines.

Day 1. Welcome to Melbourne

From Melbourne Airport, transfer to your city centre hotel where you can relax after your flights.

Your hotel is centrally located and it is easy to take a stroll through the city’s famous laneways, where you will find the city’s best cafés.

Day 2. The capital of restaurant life

Explore Melbourne’s vibrant life and visit Federation Square, Bourke Street Mall and Queen Victoria Market.

Melbourne has the best tram network in Australia, and the trams are free to use in the CBD area (please follow the announcements where the free zone ends). I recommend starting your day with the historic Melbourne City Circle tram, which runs around the city and serves as a great introduction tour to Melbourne. It’s free and you don’t need a pre-booking or ticket and you can hop on and off whenever you want.

Melbourne is also known for both good coffee and good food. You will find almost any cuisine of the world as well as world famous restaurateurs and their top restaurants.

Ask for more information so we can help you book a table.

After your breakfast, the driver will pick you up from the hotel and start your day trip to Healesville Sanctuary, where you will meet koalas, kangaroos and other Australian animals.
