The 'History West Tour' concentrates on Melbourne's history in the western side of Hoddle's Grid or the central city area. Our guides will talk about the early history going back more than the 176 years that Melbourne has been in existence what we call the 'Banks and Bullion' tour.

From the start of the tour, your guide will take you from the place where Melbourne was first established near Enterprize Park and through the old commercial side of town seeing old banks built in 19th Century boom times.

Our customers will discover some of the hidden laneways and arcades that Melbourne is famous for, discovering many details easily missed without an expert guide, and finally ending up 2 hours later near St Paul's Cathedral.

This is a historical tour so those that seek a cultural experience should take our Laneways tour. The West tour is available Tuesday to Friday at 2pm only. We are sorry we don't offer it on the weekends but some of the highlights of the tour are in buildings that are closed on weekends.
