The Melbourne Women’s  Tour visits visit places linked to important women identities from all walks of Melbourne life and times as well as places connected to milestone events and contributions to justice, the arts, political reform, business and civic progress. To bring history alive we  allocate a notable female identity to each participant of a group. Many sites we visit have great heritage and architectural significance as well e.g  the era of Marvellous Melbourne. Tours usually commence from Parliament House and are normally 2.5 hours long. School student tours are two hours.
