IN PERSON

This is History. Melbourne: A Walking Tour - Involving Walking (UK)

Join unqualified historians and part time documentary makers, father and son duo Pete & Dave Batallion, on their all-new fact free tour of the town* that may be known as Batmania. Is it? What?

Their expert ‘wikipedic’ knowledge gives unique insight into a history of Melbourne that may never have occurred. 

From Batman's discovery of Melbourne, to the battle of the Eureka Tower Stockade, to the actual spot where ‘Sherlock Homeless' not only slept but solved crimes and more, see, hear, smell and occasionally touch the world that never was as they bring to life scenes and events that may have occurred...  perhaps.

* Be advised walking will occur on this walking tour. 

Tours depart from The Exford Hotel.
