Michael "Banjo" - International Star of Stage and TV.

DISCOVER MICHAEL'S HOMETOWN - MELBOURNE
I have spent a lifetime touring the world, forever stopping to enjoy its delights. I am thrilled to share with you my favourite city and hometown - Melbourne. Gaze upon the historic, old buildings since before the Gold Rush to some of the world's most modern skyscrapers.

WORLD LEADER IN CUISINE AND ENTERTAINMENT
I "Banjo" {thats what people call me} will take you on an historical tour that will unveil the city of Melbourne - a true melting pot of many nations. Partake in some of the city's favourites eating haunts from Italian, Greek, Chinese and Vietnamese - all a stone's throw away from the city centre.
Melbourne is certainly a world leader when it comes to international cuisine and entertainment! Unveil all the entertainment Melbourne has to offer, from street buskers to lavish theatres. I will then take you on a stroll through markets; some that are the longest running in Australia.

ENJOY THE GARDEN CITY IN COMFORT AND STYLE
Find out why Melbourne was once called the Garden City as I take you on a comfortable car ride from the famous Fitzroy Gardens to the Shrine of Remembrance and the scenic Yarra River. Within minutes you'll be relaxing and feeling like royalty. My friendly approach will make you wonder whether you have actually known me for years.

YOUR TOUR GUIDE IS A PART OF MELBOURNE'S HISTORY
When there's a spare moment ask me about my TV and stage career. Find out about the theatre restaurant and Australian wine shop I owned for more than eight years. Or let me share my experience of owning an old NSW pub where the famous 1960 Australian movie, "The Sundowners, " was filmed.
Have a chat about some of the wonderful destinations I have visited as a headliner act on Cruise Ships {and still am}, or maybe the Oyster Farm I owned and ran for many years on the Sapphire Coast, New South Wales. Or maybe you'd like to chat about my favourite hobby - Aviation! I have been a pilot longer than I've been a car driver! l'll tell you about my plane - a Mooney - which I keep close by at a local Melbourne airport.

Wherever you choose to journey in Melbourne, I will make sure it's a most memorable and quality experience - something you can talk about for years to come!
