About Melbourne Vegan Tours


What is a Vegan Tour?

We eat, drink and socialise at the best vegan businesses in Melbourne. Think of it like a walking food tour – that happens to be vegan. 

You get EVERYTHING included for the tour. Food. Drinks. Discounts. Showbags. The LOT!

We host guided walking tours through Fitzroy, Melbourne CBD and St. Kilda with up to 5-6 stops at the best Vegan businesses on offer.

We also offer day trips via bus to the Mornington Peninsula showcasing the best vegan food and community they have created.

Each tour gives you an insight into the local area, the people that created the businesses and the vegan scene in Melbourne.

Hosted by local experts and passionate vegans, there is A LOT of food provided so you will finish the tour well-fed, satisfied and inspired to learn about the vegan movement – so come hungry!

You will also get some small history lessons about Melbourne and the city itself, as well as lots of info about the rise of the vegan movement here in Melbourne!


Why we created Melbourne Vegan Tours

The exponential growth of the Melbourne Vegan industry inspired us to create a solution to help showcase the best vegan business to locals and visitors. We’re proud that Melbourne is one of the fastest growing cities for the Vegan movement with over 100 fully vegan or vegetarian restaurants now open across the City and State – up from just 3 in 2009!

With so much choice, it can be overwhelming to know where to start – that’s where we come in. We set out to create a relaxed solution that introduce people to some of the most popular vegan businesses with members of the vegan community. Being able to eat, meet and socialise with other vegans in the community was one of the key reasons we create Melbourne Vegan Tours.

Jess Ivers and Dan Pinne Melbourne Vegan ToursWho created Melbourne Vegan Tours

Jess and Dan are the co-founders of Melbourne Vegan tours. Having turned Vegan in early 2016, they never thought their love for eating out and trying new food could lead to a new business idea. They also run a popular podcast and blog – The Reluctant Vegan – that documented their journey in going Vegan. Now passionate, fully-fledged plant-based beings, they’re excited to be able to show people just how far the industry has come.
