This is a complicated rule, I want some guidance on writing this actual rule, not general rules, I can google that :) - please.

Give this a shot.

Capture ALL URIs, check that it is not already a virtual root of /strange-tours-melbourne and then redirect to /strange-tours-melbourne/<the path in the url> IF the url is in the format domain/<path>

<rule name="Redirect /(.*) to /strange-tours-melbourne/(.*) " enabled="true" stopProcessing="true">                    
<match url="(.*)" />                    
 <conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAny">  
  <add input="{REQUEST_URI}" pattern="^/strange-tours-melbourne/(.*)$" negate="true" />                      
<action type="Redirect" url="http://{HTTP_HOST}/strange-tours-melbourne/{R:1}" appendQueryString="false" />
