I had the misfortune to be saddled with Tom for a walking tour around Melbourne. Normally I really enjoy walking tours as the guides are mines of information. Sadly it became obvious that Tom knew nothing about Australian history or the history of Melbourne beyond...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You

corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

It depends how good they are at walking, you’re on your feet for more than two hours and there are busy areas with traffic and people. I don’t think it would be suitable for children of that age as I imagine they’d get bored. More
