Immerse yourself in Brighton and St Kilda


Brighton Bathing Boxes are a must see in Melbourne. Join me on a fun exploration of Melbourne's original seaside playground.
Savour the classic Victorian architecture of Albert Park and drive along the Australian F1 Grand Prix track on our way to historic Brighton with its $10M+ properties and world-famous colourful Bathing Boxes. Once a "modesty" requirement in the 1920s, they are now colourful, quirky and much loved.
Then it's on to St Kilda with its spectacular foreshore and pier, offset by the quirky lifestyle of Acland Street. Immerse yourself where bohemian artistry meets bayside lifestyle chic.
We will see the famous Luna Park, modelled on New York's Coney Island and enjoy lunch in one of the many unique restaurants for this area. You can then uncover the delights of the Sea Baths complex and St Kilda Pier. If it's a warm day, bring your swimsuit and have a dip if you like. Let me know ahead and I will have towels on board…
I will have you back to your ship/ hotel around 3pm.

A Recent Review of this tour

Rick communicated with me prior to our arrival into Melbourne and picked us up promptly from our apartment. Rick is enthusiastic and passionate about showing us all the wonderful sights on our first half day tour. We spent a total of two and a half days with Rick and we knew we had picked the right person to show us around. After Brighton, Rick took us to St. Kilda to watch penguins come home. Everyone was excited to see the sight as penguins walked by right in front of us!
