About the tour

This is our 3rd and final UooUoo hunt before they pack the UooUoos up and send them to good homes! Let's give them the farewell that they deserve whilst also exploring the eclectic suburb of Prahran. Its main road, Chapel street, is also known as Australia's largest retail, entertainment and lifestyle precinct. So we may as well check out some of the cool shops... and its loveable contemporary style! Truly feeding two birds with one scone! UooUoos are mysterious, magical, and colourful creatures that have been scattered all over Melbourne and painted by 100 different Australian artists. We will discuss their significance, read about each design and collect beautiful postcard moments to cherish for a lifetime! UooUoos are on display until the 21st of March, so this is your last chance to enjoy this memorable, inclusive and charitable piece of art!


Meet your local guide

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 it 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.

Alexander has been guiding since Apr 2017

I absolutely loved the UooUoo tours! Alex made the tours so much fun! He has a great personality and is just a kind and caring person. He also has a great rapport with the guests on the tour and does a fabulous job of interacting with all of us. I’m glad I was a part of the UooUoo experience!

That was AWESOME! Love Alex's determination to find those uoouoos and for him to share some personal details on one of the uoouoo's❤❤ The enthusiasm during all 3 tours for the uoouoos were FANTASTIC and I just thank Susanna for recommending us/me if we went to see more...join his trips. YES!! I appreciate her recommendations. I feel like I know more about Melbourne than I did than I did last month! Also I really appreciate him trying to answer all of our questions and planning over the uoouoos to get certain shots..like the uoouoos bum ;)
