Selecting Escape Discovery Adventures (EDA) was THE choice thanks to good reviews on tripadvisor . EDA did not disappoint. Shane, our guide was right on time to pick us up from our hotel and it was a smooth and relaxing ride all the way to and along the Great Ocean Road. The Merc van was a great choice cruising along...

Both the trips were very well managed and excellently planned. Our tour guides Rob and Phill were highly knowledgeable and gave us a good idea about the history and culture of the country. They kept us thoroughly entertained and took good care of us. I would definitely recommend this tour for all.

We were taken by Alan as a group of 10 on a wonderful tour along the Great Ocean Road. Alan was very knowledgeable and provided lots of insights in to the area. There was one issue - when we entered the rain forest he gave lots of warnings about snakes, spiders, and even man eating snails. The result was that... More

The best tour we have taken. Pick up was efficient, the guide was Super friendly and helpful. The best part other than the beautiful sights, was that the meals were provided. There was a morning tea break-picnic style - the biscuits served as our breakfast. Lunch and dinner was leisurely as the group got to know each other. Overall it... More

This is my first time in Australia and I have a great time to visit Great ocean road with Rob. He is a professional tour guide and a very good organizer. A bit surprised the great meals (lunch and dinner) in restaurants (not in the park or service station hahahaa) are included. That is an enjoyable trip to go with... More

Great day with Shane! Bus was very comfortable, food was good, and Shane was funny, interesting and very knowledgeable. Beautiful and scenic drive with lots of stops to take pictures and wander around. Would highly recommend this to anyone. Great company. Small group size was very pleasant and I was really glad not to be on the big tour buses... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. 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.
