If you really want to get to know a city then walking is one of the best ways. You can get a free walking tour of the city from i-City Tour, it is led by really knowledgable guides, and they’re volunteers too. You can get more information from the kiosk in Murray Street Mall. The tour only takes two hours, but you’ll go through all of the gold rush history and the city gardens too.
