Stroll around Melbourne with some locals to hear what makes the city tick
From the traditional land owners of what we know as Melbourne today, to the very recent history of the birth of Melbourne's street art culture - this self-guided GPS-triggered walking tour has interviews, music and a diverse range of topics packed into a one hour stroll (and one tram ride) through Melbourne's CBD.

I'm Mitch and I'll be your host for this guided tour of Melbourne. Along the walk, I'll introduce you to a few people I spoke with from around Melbourne to try to give you a feel for what makes this city tick, and how it came to be. You will be engaged from start to finish and the walk will give you a good foundation of knowledge and appreciation of Melbourne so that you can go out and explore it on your own afterwards.

The tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.
