Set out to discover this lively and affluent inner city neighborhood, known for its many vintage boutiques, cafes and breakfast hot-spots.

Peruse an array of distinct art galleries that wreath Crown and Devonshire streets, sip a “flat white” or “long black” (Aussie coffee drinks) while admiring the local mix of hipsters and business folk and stroll among eateries ranging from modern Aussie to Southeast Asia street food.

Your tour also includes a refreshing gelato cup or cone and the option to include a light lunch.
