Private tour or shore excursion

This tour visits many of Melbourne's best shopping areas.
We will start at the world famous Queen Victoria market and then continue into the city to discover many of the small Australian designer shops. Many of these are bespoke clothing shoe and jewellry designers not available out side Australia.
If that is not your style we can drive to the largest mall in the Southern hemisphere- Chadstone. Chadstone has over 530 shops and over 400, 000 tourists a year. and something for everyone.

However if you require something specific, art, vintage, food, jewllery or something else just ask we will be happy to find whatever you are lookig for

There are also plenty of coffee shops along the way to try one of Melbourne's famous coffees and rest your weary legs.
Please note on Mondays and Wednesdays, when the market is closed the guide will take you somewhere else special.


The Queen Victoria Market is the Southern Hemisphere's largest open air market. Visit stalls selling all manner of produce, dairy products, meat fish , souvenirs, clothing and ugg boots and be entertained by local buskers.
We will then visit small Australian designer's selling everything from handmade shoes and glasses, to woodwork and the latest designer fashion.
If you are interested in jewellery we can also visit ateliers where you will find pieces not available outside Australia.
This is a fun tour , finding the hidden shopping secrets of Melbourne.
Please note the Queen Victoria market is closed on Mondays and Wednesdays, but dont worry there is lots more to explore.

A Recent Review of this tour

Shelley is the absolute best. She is committed to her guests having a great experience. She reached out to find out what we wanted to get out of the tour and did additional research to find out where to go to deliver exactly the experience desired. This was our second visit to Melbourne and our second tour with Shelley and I can't see coming back to Melbourne without connecting with Shelley again.
