What you can expect

Discover Melbourne’s boozy past on this spirited city walking tour where you’ll visit three secret bars and laneways.. The tour kicks off at Federation Square with a guided walk through the city zipping in and out of the laneways to unearth the famous Melbourne street art scene.

See Melbourne’s only surviving Banksy artwork and learn how the laneway renaissance began as you hear tales of persecuted barmaids, naughty wine-fuelled parties and a boozy Police Commissioner from the past. With a stop at three secret bars, there is time to give your feet a rest and enjoy a handcrafted cocktail at each venue. At the end of the tour, you'll also receive a mystery gift to celebrate your time with the friendly, local guides.
