Melbourne Bike Tour from Federation Square
From US$80.34
Overview

Have fun, be active, and tour many of the must-see sites (and a few hidden, local ones) on this small-group bike tour around central Melbourne. Your local guide will help you navigate the busy central city, and show you to Melbourne’s coolest parks, cafes, laneways, street art spots, and more. An ideal way to get oriented in the city, to check off some attractions, and to note down others for further exploration later.

What to Expect
Your Melbourne bike tour starts and finishes from in Federation Square, on the riverbank level near the Riverland Bar. After being fitted out with a light 21-speed hybrid bike and a brief safety talk you'll head off to explore Melbourne's famous sports prectinct, the city's best bars, shops, markets, street art and multicultural neighbourhoods.

This tour, designed by Melbourne journalist and photographer Murray Johnson, includes a colourful commentary which will leave you with a local perspective and understanding of what makes Melbourne tick... as well as how to get the most out of your visit.

The Melbourne Cricket Ground, Rod Laver Arena, Fitzroy Gardens and Captain Cook's Cottage, Parliament Theatre District and stately cathedrals are all part of the tour, but the main focus is Melbourne's coolest streets and neighbourhoods around Fitzroy, heavily influenced by nearby Melbourne University. 

You'll stop for coffee and cakes in Little Italy, a delicious lunch at the 140-yearold Queen Victoria Market and other stops may include Melbourne's best ice cream shop and secret world-class croissanterie!

The tour ends with an exploration of Melbourne's famous laneways... rounding out a diverse, sociable, healthy and tasty 4-hour city adventure.

Tours depart daily with a maximum of 8 riders. You can store your belonging at the departure point. Bikes in a variety of sizes will be provided. Lunch is included, as well as copy and cakes in Little Italy.
