There is nothing Melbournians like better than a plate of dumplings! But where to go? There's so much choice! Visit several dumpling houses throughout the city that all do something a bit different in this unique walking tour.

During this two to three-hour experience, you'll visit four delicious venues over three hours – all in the central city area. The walk is designed to show you a range of different dumplings at some of Melbourne's most authentic places. We think they’re a collection of the best dumplings in town - you won’t be disappointed!

Between bites, learn about the history of Chinese immigrants in the city and how they’ve created their own distinct “Melbourne-Chinese” cuisine.

This experience is perfect for those looking for fun things to do in Melbourne or if you're searching for unique gift experiences for a dumpling lover!

It’s our job to get you excited about discovering Melbourne! We tell the stories of the places we visit while sharing food. You’ll leave feeling excited about the treasures Melbourne has to offer.

Monique Bayer is the soul behind Walk Melbourne. She loves food and she loves Melbourne. She’s happiest when she’s working at the intersection between food and storytelling – stories about the people who bring food and coffee to Melbourne, both then and now. Monique is the winner of the 2014 RACV Victorian Tourism Award for Youth Achievement.

Best of all, you benefit from the 15 years Monique has spent sitting on milk crates in alleyways and finding those food treasures… just to share it all with you!

The dumpling tour was so much fun. Monique is a great host - interesting, funny and a great story teller! Our group we’re all lovely and everyone got on really well. Loved it so much we are about to book another tour with Monique!

Really enjoyable and informative. Wait a bit long for 2nd venue but this was not the fault of the tour. Covid shortages

Leanne Campbell Mar 2022

Thoroughly enjoyed the dumpling tour. Our tour guide Monique was lovely, with an exceptional knowledge of Melbourne’s history & the process of making dumplings. Certainly given us ideas for future dining.

Sue was a friendly informative guide. Really interesting and delicious to explore the different styles of dumpling. Highly recommend.
But maybe skip lunch prior, or at least light lunch!

Monique was lovely and I had a fabulous time. There was a cozy 8 of us in the group and we tried four different dumplings from four different restaurants. There was history about Melbourne’s beginnings and lots of info on dumplings and the parts of China each variety was from. Thoroughly recommend.
