Step by Step Melbourne reveals this sporty capital through a selection of clearly laid-out walks and tours, complemented by beautiful, full-color pictures, an authoritative narrative voice, and a wealth of practical information, all in a compact package.
The guide starts with Recommended Tours, suggesting the book’s best tours for foodies, history fans, and those seeking the bohemian subculture.
In the Overview, an engaging introduction reveals essential background information on Melbourne’s inhabitants, geography and architecture, plus the lowdown on food, drink, shopping, entertainment, sporting events and local history. This provides all the background information needed to set the walks and tours in context.
The Walks and Tours section features 14 irresistible self-guided routes, from the CBD, the tree-lined boulevards of Carlton, and the shabby-chic shopping and entertainment streets of Fitzroy, to the green lungs of the Kings Domain, the upmarket suburbs of South Melbourne and seaside St Kilda, with trips further afield to the Mornington Peninsula and wine- and cheese-producing Yarra Valley. All show step by step how to get the most out of Melbourne and the surrounding area, with something for every budget, taste, and trip length. Each of the tours has a clear, easy-to-follow map, hand-picked places to eat and drink en route, and great insider tips. All this makes it simple for the reader to find the perfect tour for the time they have to spare.
The final section of the book is the Directory, incorporating a user-friendly, fact-packed A to Z of practical information, plus select hotel, restaurant and nightlife listings, which will lead the reader to the best that Melbourne has to offer.
