This tour is all about discovering the hipster inner north with its quirky backstreets, hidden breweries and fun locals with a side of beers and biking.
The key turning point in beer’s epic history in Melbourne came with the arrival of Belgian chemist Auguste de Bavay in 1884. Beer had been brewed commercially before, but de Bavay changed the game. Following in Augustes footsteps Melbourne’s beer scene has exploded in the last few years. With now over 116 breweries in Victoria. We cruise around the inner suburbs of Richmond, Abbotsford and Collingwood.
For over 200 years, Melbourne’s multicultural immigration has helped to create a dynamic cultural and culinary landscape.

Summer evenings in Melbourne are best spent down by the beach! What better way to watch the setting sun over Port Philip Bay and the marvellous city skyline than by an e bike tour! We’ll ride the Bay’s scenic bike path through the historic and picturesque bayside suburbs of Port Melbourne, Albert Park and St Kilda, all the way to Brighton Beach (home of the famous beach boxes).
During the tour you will get a chance to meet some of Melbourne’s friendly, feathered locals and take part in a classic Melbournian summer activity, Fish and Chips on the beach (Included in price). There are many photo opportunities along the way including great views of the city from the famous St.Kilda Pier. We need to cover a bit more ground on the Penguin Plus tour than the others we offer. So to keep it relaxing, whilst still turning over the kms, we’ve decided to give you a little boost and jump on our Lekker E-bikes.
Bookings by request, 4 person minimum to run this tour, The tour must be run in the evening as the penguins come home at sunset.
