Many visitors are flocking to the metropolitan city of Australia with the desire to experience adventure activities in Melbourne but this can be further enhanced with the help of Airbnb. A new platform was created for travellers who are interested in mingling with entrepreneurs in the city. The platform is called Trips to Melbourne.
This can be accessed through Airbnb and it has a list of experiences that are powered by locals themselves with the desire to interconnect anyone from the entire globe who shares the same passions and interests.
Local experts designed over 60 activities or termed Experiences in the platform. All of these activities are based in Melbourne and is open for both locals and travellers.
There are many experiences on the list such as hiking inside a forest reserve to look for a group of kangaroos, experiencing coffee and food with a local connoisseur or exploring the street arts in the city and the hidden alleys.
Joe Gebbia, the co-founder as well as the chief product officer of Airbnb, said that the Experiences will be able to bring together local hosts that are passionate about what they do and travellers who share the same passion or interests.
Travelers are now given the chance to experience first-hand the culture, food, sports and fashion of the metropolitan city. The locals view this as a chance for travellers to be able to try new activities and to meet interesting people.
As these locals make money doing what they love, they also help in the local tourism of the city. For the launching, four celebrities in the city are going to join the Social Impact Experiences. All of the money from these activities will be donated to local charities.
With Social Impact Experiences, the visitors will be able to know more about the causes and passions of the celebrities they are with. There are no fees to be collected by the Airbnb and all the payment by the guests will be given to charity.
Guests are encouraged to sign up to experience adventure activities in Melbourne as well as immerse in the city’s culture, food and fashion.
