Explore Melbourne’s fascinating colonial history and birthplace on this half day sightseeing tour through historic areas of bush and bay locations with Trike Tours Melbourne.
The tour begins where Melbourne itself did by exploring the historic maritime village of Williamstown on Port Phillip Bay. You will see glorious views of Melbourne and Port Phillip Bay, learn of the area’s rich maritime history, its significance in both the development and defence of Melbourne, and its leading roles in emerging industries of the time. Visit some historic structures and take a walk out onto the Pier for a glorious view of Melbourne across the Bay.
You will then travel to what is the largest area of natural bush land left in inner Melbourne to explore the historical linkage to the area just visited. Learn of the significance of the area and its outcome whilst exploring the natural bushland banks of the Yarra River.
Learn also of the rich and intriguing European history of this area involving lunatic asylums, infectious diseases, prisons and convents. It could drive you batty. If it doesn't, your guide will take you to a large roosting camp of up to 30,000 flying foxes – an Australian native megabat.
