While things may have felt quiet on the streets during previous months, at City Precinct, we have been busily working behind the scenes to continue to develop projects that will help support our local community and see the city thrive once again.
Following on from the success of Laneways and Gift Ideas: A Christmas Walking Tour, which featured as part of the City of Melbourne’s Christmas Collective last year, we are thrilled to be launching a whole series of new walking tours this spring.
Themed tours will take participants through the laneways and arcades of the CBD, showcasing the small and independent businesses that bring our city to life. Participants will discover new hidden gems and have the chance to meet and connect with our city’s small retailers.
Our friendly and knowledgeable hosts will share some of Melbourne’s fantastic history and the stories that have helped shape the city we know and love today.
Tours will explore some of our favourite street art and hidden galleries, laneways and arcades, fashion and style destinations.
All attendees will be gifted a special collection of treats (to the value of $60-plus) from local businesses including Bared Footwear, Mr Wares, Il Papiro, Melbourne Athenaeum Library, Hearns Hobbies and Bottega with one random and very lucky guest being gifted the golden box, valued at more than $500! These tours are our gift to you. Tickets are free, but spaces are limited. We are excited to celebrate our member businesses and share what we love so much about our city.
Tours are planned to kick start in October, but we encourage you to subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know.
