Walking tour

So, I'm really pretty unhappy with this walking tour stuff. Can we please break it down to the attraction listings format? It might be useful to do an itinerary like An afternoon in Melbourne on foot, or A walking tour of Melbourne's Central Business District, but I don't think this belongs in the main article. --Evan 10:00, 26 Dec 2003 (PST)

I agree with the principle of what Evan said. A walking tour is really an itinerary. The only thing I'd change is the title -- something like Melbourne walking tours, Walks in Melbourne or Melbourne on foot. Such an article could act as a container for several walking tours.

Actually, Walks in ... might be suited for national parks and the like too, eg. Walks in Kakadu National Park. And this makes me think of having articles like Treks in the Himalaya... DhDh 11:07, 26 Dec 2003 (PST)
So, I screwed up cos I plunged in before reading attraction listings. Then I read attraction listings and came back and changed the page. Now I discover that I caused unhappiness. I'm really pretty sorry. Hopefully though the article is better now and people are only a bit unhappy with it, but I had better check it again. :-/ Nurg 19:42, 26 Dec 2003 (PST)
Sorry to make it sound so harsh! Don't take "unhappy" the wrong way. My only unhappiness is to see good work that needs to get changed.
To tell you the truth, I really liked the walking tour, but I think it's best for travellers to have articles in consistent format. It's more painful when the work is good than when it's slapdash. Anyways, I'd love to see the walking tour turned into its own article. --Evan 20:28, 26 Dec 2003 (PST)

Rail/public transport link

I have deleted "catch public transport" because a. the link isn't working and b. VicTrip seems to be the main public transport site. 202.154.157.115 21:10, 10 Jan 2004 (EST)
