Localing curates authentic, local experiences for people who don’t like tours. These cover a broad range of interests from a general introduction to Melbourne or the wines and wildlife of the Yarra Valley, to a more specific experience centred around tennis, theatre or farmgate produce.
Always private and highly personalised, each experience is designed to showcase a mix of highlights and hidden treasures, providing exclusive access and unique insight. Meet the makers, creators and innovators in micro-factories, studios and cellar doors. Hear stories that weave through place and time, bringing characters and cultural movements to life.
Localing hosts are Melbourne locals from a range of industries and backgrounds with plenty of personality and a passion for sharing their home and lives. Their relationships in Melbourne run deep, ensuring whatever the interest, they have access to the people at the centre of it. From professional footballers to the city’s best chefs… street artists, distillers, leading architects and politicians.
Urban experiences represent around forty percent of everything Localing does. These include shorter walking tours around the boulevards and backstreets of inner Melbourne, nightlife experiences meeting musos and managers at secret local nightspots and extended day tours and masterclass experiences. More popular masterclasses include street art, coffee, chocolate, Australian Football and design. These are incredibly unique and immersive.
Regionally, food, wine, nature and wildlife tend to take centre stage in popular areas like Mornington, the Great Ocean Road and Yarra Valley. Experiences run from several hours to a few days and plenty of time is spent ensuring the days are well balanced and well-paced. Exclusive access and unique insight remain the calling cards of Localing’s regional experiences where you can expect to meet leading winemakers, discover secret beaches and take it all in from a charter flight over the region.
