Discover the thriving culture of the Jewish diaspora in cosmopolitan Melbourne and encounter the influences the community has made on the city.

Hosted by your expert local guide, take in the delights of the architecture, museums, cafes, and produce stores prominent in Melbourne’s iconic inner southern suburbs, as well as historical sites in places not often associated with Melbourne’s Jewish establishment. Stroll along St Kilda beach and pier and explore the main street of this seaside hotspot, lined with retail stores, restaurants and European cake-shops. Continue to the well-known Jewish enclaves of Balaclava, Elsternwick and Ripponlea that host a variety of delicatessens and cafes.

Learn the history of the Jewish community’s remarkable presence in Melbourne with the option to visit the Jewish Museum of Australia or the Holocaust Centre. You will soon encounter the strong bonds of the community, its impact on Victoria’s arts, sports and science, and its unrivalled educational facilities that are in place today. Be welcomed to synagogue to meet some locals.
Enjoy a delicious two course lunch in one of Ripponlea’s trendy restaurants (Kosher option available) before returning to the city taking in some of Melbourne’s stunning gardens, the sporting precinct, and iconic Flinders Street Station.
