Tour overview

Explore the best of Melbourne in one go by combining both our Yarra Sunrise Tour & Laneways Discovery Tour for a 13km journey at sunrise. On this tour, you’ll have a spectacular start to the day by witnessing the beautiful sunrise over the Yarra River before running past iconic Melbourne sights including the Melbourne Cricket Ground, the Shrine of Remembrance and many more classic landmarks.

You'll then discover Melbourne's best living art galleries! Melbourne’s famous street art culture is unlike any other and as part of this Ultimate Melbourne Tour, you will explore Hosier Lane, AC/DC Lane and a few other laneways that we’ll keep as a surprise for you during the tour. This 8km running adventure will take you laneway hopping, sharing with you the iconic shops, bars and cafes that Melbournians love to flock to, so you’ll feel just like a local.  

The Ultimate Melbourne Tour will finish with the ultimate running reward of coffee & donuts because we'll probably be a bit hungry by the end!
