    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    This light, fun tour is aimed at showing you the things locals do in Melbourne. Locals don't need to spend a fortune to enjoy themselves, and neither do you.

    So there are plenty of things you can do for free or at a budget price, when you're eating,drinking or just wandering around getting a feel of the city .

    The tour is focused on blending in with the natives more than getting a history lesson. There are plenty of excellent tours that already do that.

    Al, the author, was born and bred in Melbourne, has lived overseas and in most capital cities in Australia, and yet here he is back again in rainy old Melbourne. The question is why? The answer is in this tour and the things he hopes you’ll love about Melbourne as much as he does.

    You can stop and start the tour any time you want and even come back and do it again too. So If you've got a bit of spare time and you can walk 4kms without having a heart attack, then what are you waiting for?

    This tour is focused on local places rather than landmarks. You will be taken to places where locals eat, drink, go to a comedy club or a show, look out over the city and generally do things locals do. Over 25 different places are included during the tour

    Tips Tips

    Places to stop along the way:

    We stop at a lot of places so I won't spoil the fun by listing them all however the last track does summarise all the places we visited.

    Best time of day:

    It gets dark around 5pm in winter so day is best. If it's summer it gets dark around 8pm so I would think about the afternoon when it's cooler and you can go to roof top bars as the sun goes down and mingle with the great unwashed.

    Precautions:

    Sunscreen and a hat is a must when it's warm. A disposable raincoat if it's cloudy. A water bottle always.

    Note : Melbourne has dramatic weather changes including dropping 15 Degrees Celcius (around 50 degrees in the old language) in 30 minutes once, so allow for conditions that may produce heatstroke or pneumonia and you can't go wrong..
