It was great tour! Free tours of Melbourne's historic Town Hall give me the chance to learn about the architectural, social and political significance of this impressive 19th-century building. You need to book online in advance.

Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
