What to Bring

This tour is a walking tour, but it does include a short ride on the tram that will require a Myki Card. Please have your card topped up to avoid delays on the tour.

As the tour is outside we recommend checking the weather forecast (although in Melbourne, you never really know). Hat, sunscreen and re-usable water bottles are recommended, however a raincoat may also be needed. You may also like to bring a camera for taking a few snaps as we go and some money or card for any extra purchases.
