Melbourne: Booze Makes History Better Afternoon Drink Tour

2. Melbourne: Booze Makes History Better Afternoon Drink Tour

We begin next to the Sir William Clarke Memorial Statue next to the Old Treasury Building and after an introduction by your guide, you’ll set of for your first bar. At each venue, and along the way, you’ll learn about Melbourne’s fascinating and conflicting history. Learn about the first peoples, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation that used to live in Naarm (Melbourne) to colonisation as well as the gold rush era that led to the city being known as Marvellous Melbourne. Later known by other names, hear stories of the city’s debaucherous past of when it’s red light district ran rife and what life is like now. You’re guaranteed to learn something new! The order of the venues may change, but together we will visit a variety of our favourite local watering holes, these may include, a laneway bar, a hidden speakeasy, a charming historic pub or a rooftop bar. Many of Melbourne’s most popular bars are in tiny, hidden laneways and survive on word of mouth alone. Visit a speakeasy-style bar and learn about how and why Melbourne’s laneway scene developed. Rooftop bars are a favourite place for Melbournians to gather and not just in summer. During winter, some rooftops add a marquee and heaters and carry on regardless. Melbourne’s bar scene is ever-changing, so one of the bars will be chosen by your guide on the day, depending on the group’s desires, the weather, and what is trending in Melbourne at the time. Everyone has their favourite drink but you’ll be encouraged to try something different on this tour. Not normally a gin fan? We’ll take you to a place where you can discover its charms. Want to check out some local wines? With the Yarra Valley just a stone’s throw away, it would be a sin not to taste some of the delectable wines in the region. Whatever you’re in the mood for, we’ll have you covered. If you’re still thirsty by the end of the tour, don’t forget to ask your local guide for some recommendations to continue on. Hungry? We’ll have recommendations for that also!

What people are saying about Yarra Valley, Australia

This review is for Chris H who was our tour guide on the tour. We had a great day on the tour. It wasn’t just about the fabulous wine, cheese and chocolate tasting but Chris was very knowledgeable about the history of each location and about the local area on route to each location. This made it all the more enjoyable in the 37 degree heat. If you want a really enjoyable trip around the countryside on the outskirts of Melbourne; and also enjoy the sites and tastes of the Yarra Valley, then take this tour. Real value for money. Also wear a pink shirt, as there are not enough people on these tours wearing pink shirts.

Amazing day with great value for money! Tried many wines, cheese, fruit and chocolate which were all amazing. Very well organised and our guide Chris H was amazing with great energy and knowledge. I would hugely recommend this trip if you are wanting to visit the Yarra Valley!

A very enjoyable experience. Beautiful landscapes, smooth ride, delicious food and a variety of wines. The guide, Chris, created and maintained a good light-hearted mood in the group for the whole day. Thanks!
