Join a local insider guide on our range of modern culture and urban eco focused walking tours of Melbourne. We specialise in alternative themed tours, which feature incredible street art, iconic Indigenous locations, inspiring community projects, cultural hotspots and much more!
Wayward Wanders is a Melbourne walking tour operator with a difference! We offer unique experiences that focus on the environment, community and alternative culture. We take our guests away from the tourist attractions and introduce them to ‘our’ Melbourne. We visit a range of hidden treasures while delving into the important issues our city currently faces. We aim to give guests a true understanding of what it means to be a Melburnian.
Hi! My name is Liam and I am the founder of Wayward Wanders. I am a tourism specialist with over 15 years of tour guiding experience in Australia and Europe.
I am passionate about environmental protection and social justice, and I am interested in history, modern culture and all things sustainability.
I am a previous graduate of the Diploma of Sustainable Living at the University of Tasmania and the Environmental Leadership Program at Port Phillip City Council. And I am currently studying for a Bachelor of Environment and Society at RMIT. Alongside my studies, I also work for Manningham Council as a Community Liaison Officer for their rollout of Food Organics Garden Organics (FOGO).
The tours I have created for Wayward Wanders combine my passions and interests with my tourism industry experience and educational background. I aim to introduce guests to aspects of Melbourne they previously knew little about while inspiring them to create positive change.
Wayward Wanders acknowledges the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung people of The Kulin Nation as the original custodians of the land our tours operate on.
We pay our respects to elders past and present.
