Melbourne is a mecca for musicians and music fans alike. Tiny basement bars to huge stadiums serve up anything from local independent bands to international superstars, seven nights a week. It is no wonder Melbourne boasts more music venues per person than any other city in the world.

Over the course of this four-hour bus tour guests will learn about the venues and musicians that have transformed Melbourne into the musical haven it is renowned for. The informative tour is both fun and interactive, exploring the places and faces beloved by music fans and Melbournians alike.

Together you will discover some of the venues most cherished by Melbourne music fans and listen to some of their music along the way. Basement bars boasting famous clientele, pubs and clubs that have seen it all and stadiums big enough for the brightest stars. They won’t just drive you past these venues, you will visit a few and even enjoy a drink or two.

This tour also includes an optional finishing point taking in the Australian Music Vault – a free, permanent exhibition of Australian music which includes interactive and digital experiences plus a fantastic collection of iconic artefacts.
