Melbourne is the heart of Australia’s art and culture, with its galleries, local boutiques and laneways, the city offers a feast for the eyes and mind. Here are the best Melbourne luxury travel signature experiences to enjoy on your next visit.
Great Ocean Road:
Melbourne is known for its rich art and culture. It also has no shortage of beautiful scenic natural landscapes. The Great Ocean Road being one of them. There are a variety of ways to experience the Great Ocean Road but we generally recommend four methods:
1. A two-day overnight experience where you can maximise time hiking in the Otway Forest.
2. A twelve hour driving tour allowing you to travel at your own pace. See the popular stops but also make some unscheduled ones such as for photo opportunities or swimming in the ocean.
3. An eight hour driving/helicopter combo tour where you go as far as Apollo Bay and then take a 50 minute round trip helicopter flight over the Twelve Apostles before driving back to Melbourne.
4. An express three hour helicopter tour from Melbourne where you can still spend an hour on the ground with a local guide at the Twelve Apostles.
Fine Arts Tour:
Join a local art industry insider as they accompany you to some prestigious galleries where you will gain exclusive access by meeting the curators or artists themselves whilst your chauffeur waits directly outside each establishment.
For those short on time and who would like to experience Melbourne’s world renowned arts scene, this is an efficient form of seeing Melbourne through local eyes. You can see exhibitions like the latest ones at the NGV.
Insider Fashion Tour:
Accompanied by your knowledgeable guide and personal shopper, visit a wide variety of Australian fashion label boutiques with the opportunity to meet the designers themselves.
Along the way you will meander through some beautiful local suburbs such as Toorak, Armadale, Prahran and Albert Park. Similarly to the fine arts tour, your driver will always be on hand to keep you moving and maximise your time in the boutiques.
Prior to your tour, we will learn about your favourite labels or designers which will in turn help to create a highly curated experience.
Laneways and Arcades:
Melbourne is famous for its laneways and arcades and they are all thankfully within easy walking distance of one another. Your local guide will create a tailored tour. Whereby you can focus on architecture, street art/murals, food or history. You can also simply ask for a more generalised tour that combines all of these special interests.
