Meet Martin, our Argentinian guide who moved to Melbourne 8 years ago. Martin grew up in the beautiful city of Buenos Aires, but it was Melbourne’s welcoming and friendly lifestyle that made him eventually move here. He loves food and wine, like most of us, and is the perfect guide for city and winery tours. He’s also a self-confessed “coffee addict”, who thinks there...

The Localing team is growing! We now have 16 incredible local guides, ready for your next adventure.

We firmly believe in tours for people who don’t like tours, which is why our tour guides are a little different too. All university educated, they are fun and insightful people who have something unique to share about the places they love.

We’ve selected them for the sole reason that they’re people you’d actually want to hang out...

These are a few details from a few short years in the life of one of our smallest boroughs.

In 1856, on something of a whim, George Coppin relieved a struggling James Ellis of a great burden, the Cremorne Gardens. Ellis had overestimated his abilities, and what had worked in London, struggled somewhat in Melbourne. Coppin was a well connected man around town, who possessed a particular genius for 'spectacle'. Pretty soon this m...

If you’re travelling somewhere new, strangeness is often part of the attraction and a cause for anxiety. Both reactions are quite natural and usually a sign you’re challenging yourself. If you’re travelling with a purpose, for business or some specific occasion well it’s obvious how to be productive. On a holiday or an adventure, making the most of your time can be a more complicated proposition. For many of us, being producti...

There’s a big Woolworths supermarket on Smith Street in Fitzroy. The façade is unusual but for years I never took much notice. We did a bit of research for a tour a while ago and found it had once been the Collingwood Coffee Palace, a stalwart of the local temperance movement. Many of these alcohol free pubs became licensed in an effort to survive but this one was bought cheap by a chap named George Coles. There he started the...

At Localing Tours we think long and hard about what makes the perfect day. No one is forced to spend money on travel and leisure but many people choose to. We get a surprising number of Australian guests on our tours but when you think a little longer, it’s not that surprising at all.


Our country is known as a working man's paradise for it’s relaxed, laid back culture and work life balance. These factors play a big role in...

At Localing we do as many day trips as we do city tours. Victoria has so much to offer and while every group wants something a little different, we find certain common features appeal to many of our guests. Great local produce and beautiful scenery come to mind. Not surprisingly, something a bit physically active always goes down a treat. Sometimes that’s cycling along a rail trail or hitting the bay on stand up paddleboards....
