About your host

I'm the founder of Melbourne's biggest walking tour company. When I'm not managing a team of tour guides, you'll find me chatting in the back of dark laneway bars or exploring the local markets. I've lived in 5 countries in 3 continents but am happy to be settling down in my favourite city, Melbourne.

What we’ll do

At under 200 years old, the City of Melbourne is a recent addition to the local ecosystem. Uncover the hidden wildlife at the doorstep of this bustling metropolis. It's difficult to spot the local wilderness that surrounds this urban landscape, but in just a few you'll be spotting local critters, birds and marsupials that call this area home. I'll tell you about the efforts the city is making to…

What else you should know

The level of activity of local wildlife changes throughout the year, so while I can't promise we'll see animals, I'll try my best (and it's highly likely we'll see lots).

What I’ll provide

I'll give you a sustainable mug to take home, filled with a classic Melbourne coffee (or hot cocoa)
Boat Ride
I'll bring you on a private boat ride inside the Royal Botanic Gardens.
Citizen science tests
I'll bring some scientific equipment that will help us get river data that will help local government assess its health

What to bring

Sensible clothes for walking and boating. (Keep in mind that Melbourne's weather can be unpredictable.)
Sun cream — Aussie sun is unforgiving and you'll be on an uncovered boat for around 30 minutes
