What You Can Expect

Melbourne Insider: Rooftop Bar Walking Tour

Discover Melbourne's rooftop bars

Your walking tour starts near Federation Square, where you’ll meet your guide and set off on your rooftop bar crawl. Follow your guide through hidden doors, elevators and stairways to reach these lesser-known watering holes that some locals aren’t even aware of, where you’ll receive a special drink featured at each.

Soak up the different atmospheres at each venue for a well-rounded experience of Melbourne’s nightlife scene, from a spot rich with local history to a hip bar with an indie vibe. Visit an elegant establishment with stylish décor, and end your tour at a bar known for its terrace and scandalous past, where you can stay on your own after your guide says goodbye, or leave to continue exploring more of central Melbourne. All four bars boast views of the city so you can enjoy the evening light.

Total walking distance is just over 1 mile (2 km), and the route between bars takes you past some of Melbourne’s famous laneways and street art. If you get hungry during your tour, you may purchase food such as a burger or tapas at select places (you might also want to eat an early dinner before your tour).

Note: Some of the bars are only accessible via stairs; the itinerary may be adjusted depending on your tour group.

absolutely great!! this is highly recommended. gives you a real insight to the local flavor of Melbourne. all the rooftop bars are within walking distance to Federation Square the center city key point. you would never find these bars by yourself and during your stay, you will probably go back to them for dinner/drinks. i felt as if i could walk and find anything in the city after this tour.

Guide was very informative not just about roof top bars but had great of knowledge about Melbourne in general and very helpful with restuarants also.
If you are worried there might be too much walking involved not the case it's an easy walk plus you stop along the way to admire Melbournes beauty.
