OUR Melbourne Women Tours visit visit heritage places to appreciate how women from all walks of life during Melbourne’s history, have contributed to political and social reforms, the arts, vocations and civic life including today’s liveable city. We also have a second tour based in St Kilda.
TOURS are led by guides highly experienced in Melbourne’s culture and history.
TO bring history alive we also allocate a historic woman role or identity to each participant of a group during the tour.
MANY of the beautiful sites we visit have important and architectural significance to all Victorians or express the era of Marvellous Melbourne.
OUR CBD route usually commences from Parliament House and is normally 2.5 hours long (or school student tours two hours). The many 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.
OUR ST KILDA WOMEN TOUR commences from Acland Street.
