Well worth it, fantastic short walking tour. Jane was a wealth of knowledge who brought to life the local art installations, mosaics and street art as we weaved through the alleyways, buildings and streets.

Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
