"Melbourne's Golden Mile Heritage Trail" Golden Mile Heritage Walk Tip by sirgaw

Golden Mile Heritage Walk, Melbourne: 2 reviews and 2 photos


Take a leisurely 4.5 km stroll from the Immigration Museum in Flinders Street to the Melbourne Museum in Carlton Gardens and enjoy the best of Melbourne's fine buildings.

The trail was set up by Melbourne Museum and takes in most of Collins Street from King to Spring Streets (with a few detours) and helps give visitors the feel of Marvellous Melbourne (1880's) when the city was one of the wealthiest in the world.

Photo above is the trail as laid out in the footpaths - with and without the bird poo. Sorry I did not see that until I got home.

Self guided walk - booklet available from the Immigration Museum cost $8 or alternatively join a guided walk, $20 for adults, from the Melbourne Visitor Centre, Federation Square, 10am daily (includes booklet) Sadly the web site with all the details has been removed and when I locate my copy of the booklet, I'll up-date this tip.

Address: Self Guided or join guided walk from Fed Square
Phone: 03 9928 0000 or 1300 780 045
