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.
