Designing Your Journey
Work with Indagare to design the perfect itinerary for an immersive journey. Our travel experts know the destination inside and out, and they can make recommendations based on your travel needs and preferences.
Explore the best of Melbourne with a customized Indagare itinerary that features special access and guided touring. Here is just one example of what our destination experts can create for you.
Begin your stay in Melbourne with a guided walking tour of some of the capital’s most colorful neighborhoods. Your local guide can focus on history, art, design or shopping. End your tour in the Yarra or Docklands areas, which offer great dining options for lunch as well as spectacular water views. In the afternoon, head to the Bourke and Collins streets for shopping before cocktails and dinner.
In the morning, after a breakfast of pastries and coffee at one of our favorite cafés, pay a visit to the Heide Museum of Modern Art, which specializes in Australian artists, modernism and outdoor sculpture exhibitions. After lunch at an Indagare-recommended restaurant, relax at one of Melbourne’s lovely beaches. You can enjoy a surfing lesson or a long walk before cocktails and a waterfront dinner.
Start your day at Melbourne’s 150-year-old Fitzroy Gardens, where gorgeous indigenous trees and plants thrive. They also contain a number of curiosities that will delight children, like explorer Captain James Cook’s cottage and the Fairies Tree. Spend the afternoon with an insider-guided tour of Melbourne’s shopping and food scenes before catching a lively evening sporting match, festival or performance.
