Overview

Experience the rich history, cultural panache and panoramic beauty of Melbourne in this city tour.

The highlight of the tour is a trip to the Eureka Skydeck, located on the 88th floor of the world’s tallest residential building. Gaze out at Melbourne from every angle, and look past the city’s skyscrapers as they recede towards the Yarra River.

Pay your respects at the striking Shrine of Remembrance, an immortal monument to Australians killed during World War II.

Marvel at the lushness of the Royal Botanic Gardens, where you can sip on Devonshire tea, a vestige of the country’s English influence.

Itinerary

The tour starts from the Melbourne Day Tour Centre, where you will board an air-conditioned coach and set out to explore Melbourne city. Complimentary hotel pick-ups can be arranged from central Melbourne hotels, but are not guaranteed.

Listen to an informative narrated commentary on board the coach during the tour.

The Shrine of Remembrance is a powerful memorial that commemorates the 60,000 Australians who lost their lives in World War I. The ancient Greek tomb of Halicarnassus was the basis for the building’s classical grandeur; the shrine’s Eternal Flame burns for those whose lives were snuffed out too soon.

Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens are situated on the South Bank of the Yarra River. These beautifully landscaped gardens are among the most beautiful and faithfully maintained in the world. Here you may enjoy a Devonshire Tea amid the beauty of flourishing flowers and tall trees.

Explore Fitzroy Gardens, one of the major Victorian-era gardens in Australia and the site of Captain Cook’s Cottage, where the famed English explorer spent some years of his childhood.

Drive to Westgate Bridge, where you can enjoy spectacular city views.

Your tour ends with a trip to the Eureka Tower. Melbourne’s most distinctive skyscraper boasts the highest viewing platform in the Southern Hemisphere, some 300 meters above sea level.

Take an elevator to the Eureka Skydeck on the 88th floor, which lets you look out over this diverse cosmopolitan city from a glassed-in observatory in the clouds.

The tour ends at the Eureka Skydeck.
