Tour Overview

Departing from your ship, you'll board a motorcoach for a ride through the bay suburbs of Melbourne as you enter the city itself for a breath-taking perspective.

Towering over Melbourne, the Eureka Skydeck offers awe inspiring views of the city. Skydeck 88 is located on Level 88 with an unforgettable panorama views of the city.

After your birdseye view, you'll re-board your motorcoach for a narrated motor tour past some of the city's most notable sights including the ornate Princess Theater. Built in 1857, it's regarded as Melbourne's home for international musical productions. You'll also see Melbourne Park, Melbourne Cricket Ground, The Arts Center. You'll pass by the Grand Prix site and the beautiful St Patrick's and St Paul's Cathedrals enroute to Fitzroy Gardens.

Within the grand Fitzroy Gardens you'll discover huge formal garden beds, walking paths, a superb collection of trees, a gorgeous conservatory and the cottage that was once the home of Captain James Cook's parents in England. It's the only 18th century building remaining in Melbourne. You'll get to tour the cottage and learn about Captain Cook's life. The cottage, originally built in 1755, commemorates the captain who discovered and skillfully charted Australia's eastern coastline. Built by Cook's father in 1755 from sandstone and brick, the cottage was dismantled and transported from the village of Great Ayton in Yorkshire, England, to its present site in 1933.

Your final stop is the Shrine of Remembrance for another photo opportunity. The memorial is a permanent and lasting memory to the ANZAC spirit; the men and women of Victoria who served and those who died in the Great War.

Your tour concludes as you return to your ship reflecting on all that Melbourne has to offer.
