Walk to Art is more than an exploration of art – it encompasses culture, food and adventure.
Walk to art is an intimate, behind the scenes tour that changes frequently, is highly researched and takes you to street art and art in artist-run spaces, quirky galleries and studios – all hidden in Melbourne’s unnamed buildings and laneways. You will walk and talk while learning about Melbourne’s remarkable art community.
If you are a group looking for a unique activity or an adventurer wanting to see a special side of Melbourne, then join the band of happy strollers! Read about our art tours and corporate art tours in Melbourne.

Walk to art Venice is designed to encourage artistic and cultural development through discovery and exploration of La Biennale di Venezia – 54th International Art Exhibition.
Walk to art Venice explores ideas and issues on an international level, allowing you to be re-stimulated and re-energised visually. The Biennale is considered the most important and prestigious event on the international contemporary arts calendar, and the oldest and largest established biennale in the world.
Australia has been consistently represented in the Venice Biennale for more than 3 decades, through the financial support and management of the Australia Council.
In this special tour, we will cover Giardini della Biennale, Arsenale, pavilions and various locations hidden in opulent Venetian buildings.
