  • Experience Melbourne like never before as you embark on a simulated sensory journey in complete darkness
  • Engage in meaningful dialogue with tour guides who each have blindness or low vision
  • Inspire positive social change while supporting the Guide Dogs Australia

Be immersed in complete darkness as you wander through a simulated Melbourne. You’ll explore a familiar Melbourne in a new way. Led by a guide with blindness or low vision, your tour lasts an hour, but the effects are life-changing as you discover just how much you can achieve and adapt to change.

What's Included?

  • 60 minute sensory tour
  • White cane to assist with wayfinding

Draw upon your senses to feel what life could be like with your sight reduced dramatically.

Dialogue in the Dark is a sensory journey in total darkness.

This completely immersive experience allows you to step outside of your comfort zone and into the shoes of a person with blindness or low vision.

During the one hour tour, you’re given a white cane to assist with wayfinding.

Your skilled guide who’ll have blindness or low vision will lead you on your journey through a series of simulated and familiar environments in the unfamiliarity of complete darkness.
