Itinerary

When do I return to port after my tour/excursion?
The tour is 4 hours in length and you will be returned in plenty of time for your cruise ship departure.
All tour times are based on Shore time (i.e. local time, - not ship time)

When does my tour start?
- This tour has a set start time at 9:00 am.

Tour Operates: When Cruise Ship is in Port. (Not suitable for Embarkation/Disembarkation Days)

Known to be a delightful architectural mix of old and new, you will be introduced to an astonishing mix of Neo-gothic, Neo-Classical and Romanesque style 19th century buildings juxtaposed against modern skyscrapers, shopping centres and streetscapes.

Melbourne is a vibrant city to explore with 4.1 million inhabitants made up of around 135 nationalities, Melbourne is also known as the restaurant capital of Australia as well as its cultural centre, represented by the arts precinct. Street musicians and theatre add another dimension to an already bustling city. 

Although founded relatively late in the history of Australia, Melbourne soon ‘caught up’ with Australia’s other main State Capitol Sydney, thanks to the Victorian gold rush of the 1850s, which lead to a population explosion and the construction of many luxurious buildings, e.g. the Old Treasury, State Library, Town Hall, Parliament House, Windsor Hotel and many other history-laden sites.

Experience the ‘Paris End’ of town, with its exclusive boutiques, find out about Melbourne’s old arcades, experience the financial centre of town, with its many high-rise buildings, see Victorian terrace houses and visit the Italian suburb of Carlton. Enjoy a walk on the park, visit the Cathedral (when permitted), just like if you were in your own city.

  1. Collins St, ANZ Bank Museum, the Block Arcade and a stop if parking is available
