FAQs Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? Yes! All attendees must be at least 18 years old. Is this a bar crawl? No, this isn't a bar crawl. Our mission is to enjoy some of Melbourne's best bars and learn about the city's history. Our objective is not to get excessively drunk. We promote respectable levels of alcohol consumption. How can I contact the organiser with any questions? Shoot us an email at gday@discovera.com.au What should I wear? The most important thing to wear is comfortable shoes. Please wear shoes that are closed; do not wear thongs/flip-flops, sandals or high heels. As for clothes, make sure they're comfy and suitable for the weather. There is a bit of walking involved and Melbourne streets can get cold during the Winter. Casual is perfectly fine. What happens if it rains? Our tours will still run in light rain. If it's raining, or just cold, make sure to bring the appropriate clothing. We will spend as much time as possible under cover. We will cancel in severe conditions like a storm. In this instance you can receive either a full refund or move your tour to another date. If the tour is going to be cancelled, you'll receive either an email or phone call from us.
