Make new memories at Melbourne's most beloved historical spots on a free guided tour.
The State Library
Last year the State Library emerged from a major renovation, but you probably didn't get a chance to take a look around. Take a free history of the library tour to see what's new, along with epic pieces from history. View the reading room, spot Ned Kelly's armour and more. Tours resume from June.
Head to the 19th century on a public tour of Parliament House. Think Gold Rush-era marble, chandeliers and polished wood. See inside the parliamentary chambers and say hello to the statue of Queen Victoria. There are several tours every weekday, except when Parliament is sitting.
Royal Botanic Gardens
Don’t miss the opportunity to discover Melbourne’s vibrant Royal Botanic Gardens on one of their free guided walking tours. Discover natural flora and fauna as you wander through rolling landscapes, towering trees and glittering lakes.
