Depot Adventures is one of Australia's top-rated walking tour companies.

Their mission is to provide an opportunity for everyone to join a walking tour. Not everyone has been on a free walking tour or knows if it's for them, so the flagship tour, the Free Walking Tour of Melbourne, serves as an entry point for guests to find out about the city and experience a walking tour without any financial risk.

Following the success of Melbourne's Free Walking Tour, the Depot team branched out to offer a variety of food, drink and cultural tours of Melbourne for a fixed price.

Depot Adventures offers tours that depart daily, as well as bespoke itineraries and private guides for groups.
