What you'll do

The History & Donuts Walking Tour is a two hour leisurely walk weaving through Melbourne's famous laneways, discovering the hidden gems that many locals wouldn't know exists.

As we explore several laneways of stunning, ever-changing street art, you will be immersed in Melbourne's true laneways culture. We will discover the hidden bars, and cafes so that you can come back to them later and we will share the quirky stories of some of Melbourne's more obscure place - some of which date back to the 1800's.

It just happens to be that the route passes two of Melbourne's best donut shops. Coincidence? We'll stop by and pick up some donuts and also stop for coffee mid tour because you can't do Melbourne without coffee!

The team of Tim, Jacqui, Cayla, Tony, Josh and myself look forward to sharing a donut or two with you on this History & Donuts Walking Tour soon!

Other things to note

I'm the founder of Running Tours Melbourne and for 6 and a half years been creating guided running experiences to really showcase the best of Melbourne. In that time I've found many hidden gems that are tucked away down the laneways and alleys of Melbourne and I'd love to share them with you!

If you are a local or a visitor, I'd recommend this tour to anyone who is keen for history and art of Melbourne. Matty delivered the content really well and answered questions with confidence. Bonus was his recommendations on roof top, underground bars. Melbourne coffee and donuts was a cherry on top.
