There was a time when Melbourne was one of the richest cities in the world – it became known as Marvellous Melbourne. Explore the 1880’s with tours of Melbourne Town Hall on Swanston Street and the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton.

And if you want to learn a few dancing steps of the time, visit Forever Dance, which has a range of classes for beginners. Ask especially for Lingy’s Viennese Waltz.

The 1880’s saw the creation of a Melbourne icon – the tram, and what better way to finish a tour of Marvellous Melbourne than a meal on board The Colonial Tramcar Restaurant. They even provide an early dinner service so you won’t be late for that theatre show or special event.
