Overview
Get a look at the swankier side of Melbourne during this 4-hour tour of the eastern suburbs. Visit the historic Raheen mansion and the fabulous Toorak area, and drive past a portion of the Yarra River as you sip on afternoon tea at Como House. Learn the history of Melbourne and its wealthy residents as you get a look at the district’s mansions, elite schools, clubs, and tony shops.
What to Expect
Begin your tour at Federation Square, board your minivan, and head toward Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. As you drive, pass a number of city landmarks and listen to informative commentary from your guide.
Once in Kew, check out the beautiful architecture of the Raheen estate, which was once home to the archbishop of Melbourne and now is estimated to be worth over $100 million. Continue on one of the city’s best private schools where notable Australians such as Hollywood darling Cate Blanchett and Sir John Monash, engineer and WWI military commander, were educated.
Explore some of the most expensive streets in the city, including the swanky mansions of Toorak, before heading to the beautiful Yarra River. Take a stroll along the banks and stop for afternoon tea at the historic Como House before returning to Federation Square, where your tour ends.
