Enjoy the aesthetic of immaculately presented drivers wearing traditional coachman attire. After greeting your friendly driver, meet your beautiful Percheron horses and give them a pat. Board your comfortable carriage and set off to see the magical sights of Melbourne. Along the way, pass by the Arts Centre, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Queen Victoria Gardens, the Yarra River, the Shrine of Remembrance, Princess Theatre, Parliament House, St. Patrick's Cathedral, China Town and more. Take advantage of plenty of fantastic photo opportunities to make this an experience you’ll remember forever.
