Melbourne: Street Art City Exploration Game

1. Melbourne: Street Art City Exploration Game

Embark on a quest to discover the impressive street art of Melbourne on this exploration game played on an app. Solve clues to unlock stories on your phone as you learn about well-known and underground artists and explore hidden corners of the city. The story begins with you as an orphaned, runaway teen. You’ve escaped your foster home to track down your godmother who always encouraged your art, but lost touch after your dying mother pushed everyone away. Solve challenges to see the rest of the story unfold. Start at Hosier Lane. From there, simply follow the game route and instructions. Explore at your own pace: pause the game and resume anytime from any location where you paused it. As you solve challenges, directions on your phone will guide you to the next location. Walk to Melbourne’s famous works of street art such as the never enough mural, sovereignty mural, and more. Learn about the iconic murals of the CBD, Fitzroy, and Collingwood. Choose to play on your own, in a large group, or in several smaller groups to compete against each other and race to the final stop of the game. Enjoy an experience that’s the perfect mix between a tour, outdoor escape game, and treasure hunt. The entire game will take around 1.5 to 2 hours to complete.

Private Melbourne: Best of Fitzroy & Collingwood Experience

2. Private Melbourne: Best of Fitzroy & Collingwood Experience

Get to know the story behind two of Melbourne’s most loved neighbourhoods, Fitzroy, and Collingwood, on this 3-hour ultimate walking tour. From working class origins, these two neighbouring suburbs have gone through highs and lows to become the hip epicentre of Melbourne’s live music, street art, coffee, and food cultures. Brunswick St, Smith St and Gertrude St have long been considered some of the coolest streets in Australia, if not the world, and on this tour, you’ll discover them all with a local guide by your side. Exploring the backstreets, which change from leafy and charming to industrial chic, we make out way to 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. Walk through historic brewing sites and factory complexes of the area to see how they’ve been transformed for sustainable contemporary uses and learn how Collingwood has transformed into a hub of modern craft beer and alternative fashion. Discover how migrants have turned these areas into some of the most diverse in Melbourne and view an impressive mural on the nearby housing commission towers - one of the largest of its kind in the world. Visit the new Collingwood Yards Arts Precinct to learn about another amazing social enterprise and see one of the most iconic live music venues in Melbourne with the incredible Keith Haring mural nearby. As the tour continues back through the leafy streets of Fitzroy you’ll find more hidden gems, amazing street art, and learn about the many colourful characters of the area’s bohemian history. At the end of this ultimate inner-city walking tour, we’ll grab a refreshment at a truly ‘locals know’ watering hole, depending on the day it could be a charming historic pub, a trendy bar, or a late closing boho café. Armed with our recommendations, you’ll be ready to continue your exploring, shopping, or eating in the area or nearby back in the centre of Melbourne.

I very much enjoyed the tour- Tristan was a great informative guide and the walk had heaps of variety about Collingwood... its early history, sport, the arts, how its changed taking us to some of the projects that are helping to recycle some of the older buildings for modern use in the community

Great fun, kept the kids on the move around Melbourne for 4 hours. Minor errors at left turn at art society (should be a block earlier) and the eagle has gone. Good fun, worth doing and getting into lame ways of mlb. Same program around criminal world could be cool.
