Let’s roam the colorful streets of Fitzroy & Collingwood.
You ticked off all the mainstream things to do and see in Melbourne? Perfect - we designed a Fitzroy walking tour that's different from the rest. A tour that takes you to places you would have otherwise overlooked, where you meet authentic local people, who are part of amazing sustainable initiatives.
Together, we dive into the thriving eco-scene of these two creative Melbourne neighborhoods. Food, fashion, bicycles, zero waste - we show you sustainability in all its shapes and colours.
Our promise: we cherish small groups and off the path routes, so this is different from your usual city tour. You'll be filled with enthusiasm & inspiring stories about how we can live more consciously - while still having heaps of fun! Learn, eat, drink, mingle & meet the heroes of the green scene in Fitzroy & Collingwood.
By joining our Fitzroy and Collingwood walking tour you'll dive into the bohemian enclaves of Melbourne. Just a short tram ride from the CBD, the colorful streets are buzzing with art, vintage stores, vegan eateries and independent culture. Both boroughs have long been home to alternative souls and free thinkers, as well as the socially disadvantaged. From "slum" to the heart of everything artsy and cool - it's undergoing heavy gentrification, but still manages to keep the creative edge alive.
Expect a tour that takes you off the path in Fitzroy & Collingwood and stimulates all your senses. Together with a passionate guide and a small group of like-minded green explorers, you'll visit some of the changemakers of these bohemian suburbs. You'll knock on the doors of their kitchens, stores & workshops and get an insight into their work, beliefs, hopes & dreams.
To finish off the tour, we'll all enjoy a glass of zisching solar-brewed craft beer and celebrate that positive change is happening all around us (alcohol-free option possible).

"I rediscovered my own city!
What a fantastic experience it was being in my own city (Melbourne) and discovering all the hidden gems in Fitzroy, as if I was a tourist! Claudi is a fantastic guide who took us to a range of different places that each created a unique sensory experience - be it tasting something delicious, seeing beautiful colours or smelling amazing fragrances. I have fallen in love a bit more with my city since this tour and cannot wait to take friends and family back to some of the places we discovered."

"Genuine, Human, great places and full of passion.
I went on the Fitzroy Green Explorer Tour. There are many positive things to say about this tour. First of all, I spend time with a great group of open-minded and positive people and had many enjoyable and interesting discussions. The places we visited were of high quality, especially since they have been founded and are run by passionate people. I learned a lot, tasted great food and coffee and really enjoyed Claudia's passionate approach to connecting people and to transmit stories of the different sustainable businesses that I'll definitely visit again."
