How it started...

After years wandering the globe, Dave Carswell was fed up with telling the world how great Melbourne is... He wanted to show them. Armed with a wealth of knowledge and a sharp local perspective, Dave wanted to create a relaxed and friendly tour experience to allow the avid tourist or local to get to know Melbourne and appreciate its diverse and unique storied landscape in the company of a friend.

Melbourne By Foot was conceived in December 2009. The tours have been designed to not only highlight the sights of the city, but to provide guests with an insight into everyday life and importantly things to do in Melbourne. We pride ourselves on our expert local knowledge and we are more than happy to tell you where to eat, drink, look and listen like a Melburnian. If you aren't a local, then we want you to feel like one.


Our city has a unique urban environment and walking tours are the best way to explore. Looking for a Melbourne day tour? Please contact Melbourne By Foot to arrange a date . Let this be the first thing you do when you arrive in the city!
