Melbournians – If you think you know your city, it’s time to think again. Wayward Wanders is an ethically minded Melbourne walking tour company and they’ll show you a side of Melbourne you’ve never knew existed.

Their tours focus on local history, culture, the environment, innovative business and politics. They take in incredible street art, inspiring community projects and cultural hotspots. And that’s just for starters.

Wayward Wanders was founded by Liam Gook, a local Melbourne tour guide who wanted to “escape the horrors of mass tourism and lead small groups of curious tourists wanting to experience Melbourne as a local”.

Taking one of their tours is fun, informative and also creates positive impact – 10% of profits are donated to local not-for-profits, social enterprises and community groups. You’ll also be in for new insights about housing affordability, sustainable urban planning, Aboriginal rights, urban gardening, waste management, environmental protection and sustainable architecture.
