To help visitors gain their bearings and embark on a journey of discovery, the City of Melbourne operates a range of imaginative programs and a state-of-the-art visitor information centre at Federation Square.
A range of Melbourne maps has been produced to help both locals and visitors navigate the city with ease.
Whether you're a local or a visitor, you can see the city with fresh eyes thanks to a range of free self-guided walks brochures.
The brochures include maps and are available from the Melbourne Visitor Centre. The Melbourne Visitor Centre has been moved during the building of Melbourne's Metro Tunnel to Melbourne Town Hall.
One of the brochures is called Melbourne Walks and contains six self-guided walking tours, all starting from Federation Square.
The six walks in the Mellbourne Walks brochure are:
1. Arcades and Lanes (lanes, little streets and arcades);
2. The Cosmopolitan (the city centre);
