Ours is a free 90-minute self-directed 3km audio walking tour in partnership with Cya on the Road. It showcases Penguin's 28 CBD tourist attractions and is voiced by locals. Starting at the famous and much-photographed Big Penguin, often dressed to the hilt for special occasions, visitors amble along our recently refashioned beach foreshore. Past many of our heritage buildings and public artwork, heading up to our much-publicised heritage cemetery and vantage point overlooking Bass Strait and the CBD. Then back via the Dutch windmill park to our once world-famous heritage-listed roadside gardens via parklands, restaurants, cafes and our large undercover Sunday market. The app is also available in Traditional Chinese (for Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau tourists), Simplified Chinese (mainland China) and Japanese.
