The art deco architecture in Melbourne is world-class but often goes under-appreciated. If you're keen to know more (and flex that cool knowledge on your next date), book in for an art deco tour of the CBD. Spend your Sunday morning learning about the 1934 building boom that transformed Melbourne from a grim, classical landscape into the vibrant series of weird facades that we love today. You'll learn about the international influences which underpinned the art deco movement worldwide. It's a walking tour, so be sure to wear your comfiest sneaks; your swankiest, most flamboyant art deco hat and bring a water bottle.
