About the tour

It is no secret that Melbourne is the art capital of Australia and part of what cements her status in the international art scene is the beautiful displays of art spread throughout the entire city. We will be discovering abstract sculptures, wall paintings, monuments and anything artistic! We will be learning about each display and sharing our personal thoughts of what they mean to us. Art is very personal after all! In this episode, we will be walking along the docks of Docklands. A relatively new suburb not far from Melbourne's city centre with a lot of art scattered everywhere (including a cow stuck in a tree!... all will be explained). Along the way, we will absorb the neighbourhood and check out some of Dockland's famous restaurants and energizing vibe. See you all there, artists!

Meet Alexander


Alexander wants to live in a world filled with appreciation for other cultures, free travel and guacamole as a global currency (we’re allowed to dream right?!). “Storytelling has always been a passion of mine. Whether it’s in the form of acting, writing or showing people around my captivating city. It feels great to express my passions in so many different ways” Alex says, while sipping on a decaf soy latte (a very common beverage in Melbourne, also known as Australia's coffee capital). Alexander believes that it would be a waste and disservice to his fellow humans to not show them around his backyard (well, not his actual backyard, but you get the picture). He’s dedicated to sharing his city’s beauty and history, and once and for all proving to people that kangaroos don’t just bounce around everywhere. Alexander has been running tours for the last 4 years, with his most popular tour being Melbourne’s Hidden Penguins (there you go, saved you a trip to Antarctica!). When he is not touring, Alexander works as an actor, filmmaker and blog writer.

Thanks, Alex, for picking this wonderful route and for choosing artworks that also allow the imagination to run free and for giving enough space for our own interpretations. Very enjoyable pace, perfectly prepared guide - thank you!
