Melbourne Central Tours and Tickets

star-5
173 reviews
Free admission

Visiting Melbourne Central is a trip that can literally take days. Even if you spent only 10 minutes in each of the 300 shops, it would still take over 50 hours before the shopping was through. Granted—while it’s impractical to visit every shop—there’s still the time it takes to visit the sights within the center. Take, for example, historic Shot Tower—a bullet making facility from 1889 that’s housed within the shops. To protect the original structure from crumbling, an enormous, 20-story, cone made of glass protects the entire tower—a feat of architectural engineering that’s the largest of its kind in the world. While exploring the maze of eateries and shops, be sure to keep an eye on the time as it approaches the top of the hour. Every hour, on the hour, the famously oversized Marionette Watch sounds a version of “Waltzing Matilda,” an old bush ballad that’s considered the unofficial national anthem of Australia.

Private express Great Ocean Road...with an optional helicopter ride --

Review by Tourist follows; I am proud of my verifiable reviews: Errol is a professional of unequaled skill... For many years I have always taken private tours in over 50 cities and the experience he provided me in a short time gave me the experience that most tourist can only get in over a week. I wish all private tours were as great as his. He should teach other tour professionals how to excel beyond all expectations. Thank you very much Errol... I never forget you or the beauty of Melbourne!!
