Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

We just took a trip during winter and it was fantastic. Yes, it can be a little cold and windy but the Victorian climate is changeable at any time of year. The scenery is magnificent and I highly recommend this tour.
