Melbourne architecture tours could concentrate on traditional buildings, public buildings of significance, homes or contemporary buildings or a chronological mixture of styles.

You could visit suburbs such as St Kilda or Prahan.

While a number of generalised tour companies offer architectural tours as part of their portfolio there are two specialised tour groups that are dedicated to Melbourne buildings.  Naturally these groups are managed by passionate architects with a deep understanding of their town’s building heritage.

Melbourne’s architecture –  historic and contemporary.

Melbourne is the second-largest city in Australia and is known to be Australia’s most cultured city—although some Sydney-siders would contest this.

The city developed during the height of the Victorian gold rush in the late 1800s, which shows through the Victorian-era architecture in some neighbourhoods.

However, developments over the years have also left their mark, recently with the new and modern Federation Square complex, and the Docklands redevelopment.

It is recommended that a walking tour gives you close up encounters with places of historic significance or contemporary relevance.
