Airbnb brings Experiences to Melbourne

THEMES
/ 12 Dec 2017
Airbnb, in partnership with Visit Victoria, is bringing people-powered Experiences to Melbourne.

Visitors are now able to book unique Experiences led by Melbourne locals such as wildlife experts, restaurateurs, musicians and more. As part of its drive to deliver a global end-to-end travel platform, travellers and locals can now choose from more than 60 Melbourne-based activities or ‘Experiences’ designed and led by local experts. Experiences on offer in Melbourne include enjoying the tastes and aromas of neighbourhood food and coffee with a connoisseur, exploring the hidden laneways and street art in the heart of the city, or going hiking in search of a troop of kangaroos within a forest reserve.

To celebrate the launch, Airbnb teamed up with four celebrities who call Melbourne home, to offer exclusive, one-time Social Impact Experiences, with all proceeds going to the local charitable organisations they support. The organisations included: Moira Kelly Creating Hope Foundation (Jackie Gillies), Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation (Jarryd Roughead), Alannah & Madeline Foundation (Nadia Bartel) Streetsmart (Andrew McConnell). These Social Impact Experiences were snapped up within a matter of hours.

Highlights of the new Melbourne Experiences on offer include:
- Melbourne’s Best Cafes and Coffee Tour - find out why Melbourne’s cafes are considered the world’s best for coffee, food and design as you sample some of the city’s award-winning cafes and coffee roasters, including Higher Ground, Top Paddock, The Kettle Black, Square One Coffee Roasters and Market Lane.

- Ultimate Farmer’s Market & Picnic - Visit some of Melbourne’s best markets, talk directly to farmers, learn about their produce, farming practices and sample some of the fine foods.

- Vintage Clothes Shopping - Meet at the iconic Flinders Street Station before embarking on a walking tour through Melbourne’s best hidden vintage clothing shops, famous graffiti alleyways and European-style lanes.

- Kangaroos quest in Melbourne - Go hiking in search of a troop of kangaroos within a forest reserve in the middle of the city’s north-eastern suburbs.


- Insider’s Melbourne Music Scene - From the CBD’s laneway watering-holes to Fitzroy’s rock and jazz bars, Northcote’s acoustic, folk and gypsy flavours, and Brunswick’s pubs and warehouse parties, explore your musical tastes with a Melbourne insider.
