The Melbourne Golden Mile Walks are a must do guided activity in Melbourne for history buffs. Designed with the Melbourne Museum over 15 years ago, this walk is the best way for visitors to orientate themselves via the city’s history. With an professionally accredited guide learn about Melbourne’s heritage and its early activists first hand.
The guided walks are provided on a daily basis with pre – bookings departing the Melbourne Visitor’s Centre.
The walk is approximately two hours duration. The West East section of the route is available on weekdays and the East section on weekends.
This walk loosely follows the golden spots you see in the footpath with a personalised service and is so much more than a text book.

Melbourne Golden Mile Walking Tours, Golden Mile Heritage Walk provides participants with an opportunity to share in the guides’ great knowledge and particular secrets as the Trail marches along Collins Street. The whole trail is long, so we do it in two parts.
Weekdays is the West End and the East End is hosted on Weekends.
Take a sneak peek inside the elegant Gothic interiors of the ANZ bank, the plush European-style hotels during the West End walk as workers of another era did.
Visit the hidden laneways and arcades. Find the discreet doorway leading to Royal Arcade leading to international designer boutiques and perhaps be indulged with a special chocolate treat.
The guides, through vivid interpretation, throw colour into the two ends of the walk.
The East end of the trail passes through Chinatown where every nook and cranny holds a surprise. It’s home to the world’s longest dragon, numerous quaint shops, restaurants and the Chinese connection to Melbourne. Expose the seedy past where the pimps and prostitutes added to the chaos of the boom town
The East end tour concludes near Australia’s World Heritage listed Royal Exhibition Building.Family Friendly Public Toilet
