Phil and Suzanne host this fantastic Rock Music tour of Melbourne. The bus was comfortable, the stops along the way were great and the rock facts were fascinating. The Music Museum was amazing and well worth a visit. You can tell Phil and Suzanne have a passion for music and sharing facts and were so welcoming and friendly. The trivia at the end was really good fun and rounded off a memorable afternoon. Thanks Phil and Suzanne - you rock!

Melbourne Rock Music Explorer offers the total package for music lovers who share our passion for Melbourne's rock music history spanning the ground -breaking era from the 1950's-1980's.

Book our Daytripper tour and cruise in an air-conditioned, 24-seat mini bus to various sites of interest in and around the CBD. This tour starts at the Palais Theatre, St Kilda, where the Stones played in 1966, then takes a Magical History Tour across Melbourne to visit other iconic rock sites, including Festival Hall and the Australian Music Vault.   

The Step Back Walking Tour is a shorter, more affordable tour to some of the sites covered in the Daytripper tour, including AC/DC Lane.   

Both tours include a stop for afternoon tea and fun music trivia games. 

Either way, be enthralled as we divulge the history of Melbourne's musical landmarks,  
through stories, songs and vintage audio-visual presentations.  

We look forward to entertaining you.
