Walking is a great form of adventure, with the added benefit of exercise. As the weather becomes warmer, why not take a walk around the city and make some new discoveries.
Melbourne Walks is a program of self-guided walks within the City of Melbourne. Guides for each walk can be downloaded from the City of Melbourne’s website and printed copies are also available from the visitor centres at Melbourne Town Hall, Bourke Street, Fitzroy Gardens and the Queen Victoria Market.
The guides provide a map of the walk and give an indication of the time required and distance covered, as well as information about the sights to see along the way and the location of public toilets.
The Melbourne Walks program includes:
- Melbourne street art walk
- Melbourne music walk
- Aboriginal Melbourne walk
- Arcades and lanes walk
- A walk in the park
- On the waterfront walk
- Elegant enclave walk.
Each walk offers a unique experience of the city and will help you learn more about Melbourne’s history and culture.
If you are visiting Melbourne for the day and would like to store your shopping and personal items while you walk, Travellers’ Aid at Flinders Street Station provides luggage storage for a small fee. Prams, wheelchairs, walking aids and other helpful equipment can also be hired here.
