A trained local volunteer will take you round Melbourne for a two to four hour tour showing you a lot of the Melbourne sightseeing locations - for free - what could be better?!...........

..........This doesn't seem to be a very well publicised tour but it's really good. Read about the tour I took at Melbourne Greeter Tour.

Be sure to call up and arrange an 'orientation'.

You need to book in advance - call (03) 9658 9658 or ask at the Melbourne Visitor Centre in Federation Square.

It's available in 8 languages - English, Swedish, German, French, Dutch, Italian, Spanish and Japanese. 24 hours notice is required. The meeting point is the Melbourne Visitor Centre in Federation Square.




City Ambassadors

Melbourne City Ambassador

You'll almost certainly see red uniformed people, often standing on street corners.

These people are volunteers provided by the city to answer visitors questions.

No doubt the most usual questions are "Where is......?"!!

They are however apparently a wealth of knowledge about things to do in Melbourne so don't be shy, they want to help!

You'll see them between 10am-4pm Mon-Fri and 11am-2pm on Saturdays.
