City Guides

A comprehensive insight into the makings of a stellar adventure
Lion & Goose city guides are all encompassing references for you next trip away.


While Tokyo is unbreakably traditional places such as Harajuku, Shinjuku, Shibuya, and Roppongi are just that little bit eccentric. The roads are paved with “designer” brands such as Gucci, Zara, and Apple, and while seemingly uninspiring it’s the boroughs that are the key. Perhaps its brilliance is stashed in allies and cracks in the walls. Everyone who comes to Harajuku is smiling and having a great time, mostly astonishing given the volume of pedestrians everywhere.


Wanaka sits at the far south of Roys Bay, overlooked by the enormous Mount Aspiring National Park, blocking the town from the Tasman Sea. That's something that is pretty consistent throughout New Zealand as well. Unlike Australia where there is almost no limit to road directions, the south island of New Zealand is fairly limited in travel, thanks to their world class conservation and natural wonders the destinations are limited.


From its mysterious laneways to its self-proclaimed prestigious hospitality industry, to its four seasons in one day claim to fame, Melbourne is year after year the most liveable city in the world - and at $14 a beer you should bloody well hope so. Balancing grunge-chiq with sophisticated sharpness, you'd best bring your fashion a-game and leave the comfort clothes at home because in Melbourne nothing is too daring to wear. Or perhaps sports, pubs, and sports-pubs are more your thing - Melbourne has got you covered.
