Explore Melbourne with a local who can share the history of the city as well as point out things to do after your walking tour is done. Walks 101 tour guides want to show you the real Melbourne – the city we know and love.

The tour concludes near the Old Melbourne Gaol, where you learn about Australia’s most infamous bush ranger. After your tour is finished, your guide brings the group to a classic Australian pub where you can experience traditional Aussie food.


Is it really free?

Absolutely. Our guides will never pressure you to give money at the end. That said, you will be given an opportunity to pay your guide what you felt the tour was worth. Our guides are not volunteers — they make their living from giving free walking tours. As a result, our guides are very motivated to give you the best tour you've ever experienced.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We strongly recommend public transportation, as city parking spaces are limited, and all nearby spaces have a time limit that is shorter than our tour.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Nope — just have it ready on your phone.

What if I'm running late?

Each of our tours is custom tailored to the group, the guide, and the weather. As a result, it can be very difficult to locate the guide — especially because our guides are instructed to silence their phones during the tour. Please arrive on time, and if you are late, don't worry – we run multiple tours every day — just catch the next one!

Where will the tour end?

Our tour concludes at Captain Melville pub, where our guests get an exclusive discount if they order a meal.
