WALKING TOURS

Paddington corner c 1963

Enjoy Brisbane's subtropical climate, its unique design and architecture, and the stories of its social history hiding in plain sight.  Walk with us and get to know your city. We welcome locals and visitors alike. School groups and special bookings are also welcome.

Numbers are limited, so book your place. Remember to wear suitable shoes, take a hat and a bottle of water on all walking tours.

Access
Contact us if you have access requirements as some tours involve negotiating streets and steps. Disability carers attend free of charge. Children under two years of age attend free of charge. Please contact us and give us two weeks notice to arrange Auslan signing.

COVID Update
If you are unwell on the day of the tour, please do not attend.  In compliance with COVID Safe procedures, we gather the details of attendees through our ticketing system.

For this reason, if you wish to join a group at the last minute, and there is space, you will still need to register and pay online in order to attend.
