Fitzroy

Discover the Hipster side of Melbourne

 

Fitzroy is best known for its thriving cafe culture, art galleries, street art and hipster vibe. Fitzroy is also one of the oldest suburbs of Melbourne that has preserved 18th-century buildings in its original splendour. Present-day Collingwood used to be the industrial area of Melbourne back in the day.

 

Now lined with fantastic cafes, pubs and eateries that serve dishes from all over the world, it’s impossible to not find something of your liking. Some of the coolest vintage and designer clothing strips in Melbourne are also down this way.

 

Boasting great conditions for cycling, these burbs are best seen touring on a rickshaw! Our main tour incorporates some of the best-hidden gems in these areas. 

 

The main tour is conducted at a leisurely pace. This will give you ample sightseeing time while still allowing for stops to grab some photos! If you wish to make longer stops or customise your tour, please advise us at the time of booking. (The tour takes 60 minutes which includes approx 15 minutes for stops).

 

Joy Ride Around Fitzroy # 1

 

The Abbotsford Convent is one of Melbourne’s oldest arts and cultural precincts. It is also known for its stunning medieval French architectural style. This 19th century building stands majestically in 6.8 hectares of land isolated from the city’s bustle.

 

Setting off from Fitzroy, our rickshaw is the perfect transport mode to bring you to this rural setting. Experience the picturesque views of the farmland as our rickshaw takes the rustic path that runs in front of the adjoining Collingwood Children’s Farm. Sit back and enjoy the ride as we take you past grazing farm animals and scenic meadows.

 

With your hair in the wind and sun on your face, our rickshaw tour offers a unique adventure of seeing the Abbotsford Convent & Collingwood Children’s Farm. If you wish to make longer stops or customise your tour, please advise us at the time of booking.
