Our Story

Hi, I’m Amy Gardner, a tourism content creator who loves exploring Melbourne. At 35, I made the decision to spend more intentional, quality time with my parents, Chris and Terrie. That’s why I’m heading out with them every week for a year to explore Melbourne and uncover the true treasures in our own backyard. I’m even getting my in-laws involved, too. Together, we’re curating a master list of inspiring things to do in Melbourne for seniors and over 60s. Join us in discovering the beauty of Melbourne and beyond. Since my Dad is involved, there’ll be some terrible jokes to enjoy along the way, too.

What a wonderful website! So much useful and interesting information.

I’ve always loved the NGV, but was unaware of the guided tours until I read about them on your site. So I took advantage of this new knowledge when visiting Melbourne last week – it was so interesting! Definitely something to be squeezed in to every visit to Melbourne.
