An authentic Melbourne experience to see wildlife, taste local produce, and experience culture!
This private, customized tour was created by Talika and Cameron; Melburnians who want to show our guests an authentic day trip in and around this cosmopolitan city!
This trip covers iconic places around the city, such as the Royal Botanical Gardens and heritage homes, before going into the lush countryside (Mt. Dandenong), to walk among the rainforest and admire Indigenous art; enjoy some fine wines and local produce in another region nearby- the famous winery region, the Yarra Valley; visit wildlife at the Healesville Sanctuary, and enjoy more iconic view spots around Melbourne- the Brighton Beach Boxes. Before your day comes to an end, we take you to a secret location to see the famous "Little Penguins"; only found in the Southern Hemisphere!
