Local Impact: How you will help the local community by joining this tour:
This tour will take you to one of Melbourne's most characteristic and colourful inner-city neighbourhoods. You'll enjoy a delicious coffee and croissant at an amazing, local social enterprise café before exploring the back streets and graffiti laneways of the suburb. Learn about some of the suburb's colourful characters from the passionate football fans to an infamous criminal turned children's author. After exploring Smith Street and the evolving arts and live music culture of the area, we'll give you plenty of recommendations for places to eat, drink and shop for when the tour concludes.
Get to know the culture and history of Collingwood on this 2 hour walking tour of a suburb equally famous for it's street art and cafes as well as having the most hated team in Australian football.
We begin the journey at STREAT, a social enterprise café that supports disadvantaged youth. Melbourne claims to have the best coffee in the world and here you will get to try one for yourself, direct from their in-house roastery. Also included are some freshly baked croissants from their in-house bakery.
Walk the backstreets to a historic brewery site, which has now been converted into apartments, and learn how Collingwood earned the reputation for being the centre of the craft beer scene in Melbourne. More than 1/3 of the population were born overseas so we learn about the waves of migration to the area and take in the mural on the nearby housing commission towers - one of the largest of it's kind in the world.
Explore Smith Street, a historically significant shopping street, and visit the new development area of the Arts Precinct where we learn about another amazing social enterprise.
See one of the most iconic live music venues in Melbourne and visit the incredible Keith Haring mural.
We finish the tour at one of our favourite, unique, local, restaurants where you can try some of their tasty food if you're feeling hungry. Otherwise we will provide you with heaps of other recommendations of things to do and see in the local area to further explore Collingwood after the tour.
All stops on this tour are fully accessible.
