Explore Bohemian Melbourne

Thursday, 16 February 2017

The team at Alternative Walking Tours have put together three show-stopping tours for tourists and locals alike. 

Bohemia Melbourne Tour

An ideal afternoon adventure for lovers of Vali Myers and Nick Cave. This tour was created with the expertise of cultural historians Dr Tony Moore and John Arnold, who both have a wealth of knowledge and experience about Australia's bohemian tradition and Melbourne history and culture.

Tour through Melbourne's streets and laneways on tram and on foot to learn more about some of our city's best known painters, poets, musicians, dancers and bohemian figures, and the lives they lead in post-war Australia. 

After the 3.5 hour tour, enjoy a delicious afternoon tea at a carefully selected Melbourne eatery. 

RSVP through the young start-up's website at the link above and find out when the next tour is scheduled. 

Travelling High Tea Tour

Welcoming sweet tooths and savoury fiends alike, this tour offers the chance to sample delights at some of of Melbourne's best venues. 

Treat your mum to a three-course high tea, or bring the kids for a back-street adventure. Gluten free options are available.

Primarily operating on weekends, Alternative Walking Tours can arrange private bookings on request. 

Vintage Lover's Tour

This is the tour we've always wanted - a guide to the secrets of Melbourne's eclectic vintage fashion scene, plus afternoon tea. If you think you can balance shopping bags on a bike, vintage bicycle hire is also available. 

Running on Fridays and Saturdays, this tour is family friendly and can be booked privately on other days on request.
