Melbourne Tick Box Tour
I call this the tick-box tour. Everything you need to do before leaving Melbourne. Tickbox 1: Eureka Skydeck, an 88-storey skyscraper that is home to stunning views of the city. Tickbox 2: A Melbourne cafe. I'll explain the terminology and let you have a crack at ordering a coffee. Tickbox 3: Street art I'll take you to some of my favourite pieces of the moment, exploring the work of these back alley artists until we've worked up an appetite. Tickbox 4: Dumplings in Chinatown — this is quintessentially Melburnian, and not to be missed. Tickbox 5: Beers on a rooftop bar. ...and just like that, our 3 hours is up. I reckon this is the best crash course of Melbourne you'll find, and by the end you'll feel like a true local.
