OUR Melbourne Women Tour visits visit notable places to appreciate how women from all walks of life, during Melbourne’s history, have contributed to the arts, vocations, political and social reforms, civic life and today’s liveable city.
TOURS are led by woman guides experienced in Melbourne’s culture and history.
TO bring history alive we also allocate an historic woman role or identity to each participant of a group during the tour.
MANY sites we visit have great heritage and architectural significance to all Victorians as well e.g the era of Marvellous Melbourne.
Our route commences from Parliament House and are normally 2.5 hours or school student tours are two hours. The sites we visit can vary depending on the time available and the choices of our guides but most are drawn from National Trust sites and the outstanding publication ‘Women’s Melbourne’ by historian Dr Celestina Sagazio.
