St Kilda beach and Melbourne's most hedonistic night spots can be explored in Tourism Victoria's interactive digital campaign, which uses social media to control two "tourists" on a trip around the Australian city.

Social media users can guide the two intrepid adventurers around the city by tweeting Instructions that contain the hashtag #MelbourneRCT.

The promo film features the tourists sampling every coffee on Gertrude Street, climbing to the top of the Melbourne Cricket Ground and even beekeeping and selling fish at a street market.

The interactive campaign is live from 9-13 October and has already seen the remote control tourists visit the Malthouse Theatre, sip cocktails at Madame Brussels bar, and check out designer togs at Marais boutique.
