Skip the Crowds with Show Me Melbourne: A Safe Way to See the City
Show Me Melbourne is still taking on the city with their usual flair, but this time around, itineraries are tweaked to ensure everyone’s safety. There is no way to determine how long the ‘New Normal’ may last, but in the meantime, there are memories to create and experiences to be had.
Owner Jess Lothian and her team love to show people the parts of Melbourne that they wouldn’t find by themselves and continue to share stories that display the human face of the city.
But as of November 2020, Show Me Melbourne had to come up with new ways to craft experiences for their guests and, most importantly, to streamline a safety guide that met the Australian government’s operational standards.
Show Me Melbourne’s walking and bus tours are now executed with the guarantee that physical distancing is implemented, and that all guests wear face masks on the bus and anywhere indoors. Additionally, the team makes use of a record-keeping log to disclose guest information with the DHHS.
Time in the tour buses are limited to travel only, and where a stop is longer than 15 minutes, the buses are to be aired and re-sanitised. In line with government regulations, if any leg of the journey exceeds 30 minutes, it will be broken with a rest stop to ventilate the bus. All guests will need to disembark for the duration of the ventilation stop.
The Show Must Go On
While the hustle and bustle of the city remain minimal, the love for shared experiences is still narrated across the wide spectrum that is Melbourne’s distinct culture. It’s an experience that brings together food, shopping, history, sport, and the arts – all the things that have served as a platform to produce excursions that are both memorable and immersive.
Hopping on board a Show Me Melbourne tour is all about the nooks and crannies that not even Google can find. Besides, one gets far more value for money when a passionate local is at the helm of an appealing itinerary that goes beyond the usual routes.
All tours that form part of Show Me Melbourne’s catalogue are evidence that the guest experience comes first. That, and boundless love for the city Jess and her team calls home.
One can not only expect to revel in the beauty that is Victoria’s capital, but also an opportunity to absorb valuable insight into the history of this spellbinding destination.
Beyond Show Me Melbourne
The area around Port Phillip and the Yarra Valley, on which the city of Melbourne now stands, is said to be the place where the five language groups of the Eastern Kulin Nation gathered. Aboriginal people’s connection to Australia is 60,000 years strong.
The city hopes to help people realise that understanding their past can bring them together during these unusual times.
The City stated that “times that test our resilience and identity as a city and community, where concepts of what it means to be bold, inspirational, sustainable, prosperous and inclusive may be strained”.
The ancient ceremony of Tanderrum can have a modern interpretation that symbolises the coming together of one people in one place, where no one is left behind.
The Only Way Out Is Through
There is no easy way to navigate these unprecedented times, but with the first quarter of the new year in full swing, the local travel industry believes that soon they’ll be able to exceed 2019’s total of 39.5 million domestic and international visitors.
This includes Jess and her team who are riding out the storm while keeping a watchful eye on the familiar shores that lie ahead.
