Canberra Secrets Personalised Tours

It started with a book!

Canberra Secrets offer personalised tours that provide you with a true local perspective of what makes this city tick. They highlight the secrets and the quirky within — from national attractions, through to the city’s thriving café culture and wonders of the bush capital.

Based on the successful Canberra Secrets publications by Margaret Wade (1999, 2003 and the soon-to-be-published third edition in 2017), these small-group tours are the keys to unlocking Canberra's heart and soul.

Canberra Secrets philosophy is to not only highlight the obvious, but also those behind the scenes, showing you little known and quirky aspects only locals might know; many that are off the beaten tourist track. Tours showcase local product and innovative businesses, such as great coffee roasters and fabulous food, as well as other unique Canberra creative endeavours.

Explore the hidden secrets of the capital with the half-day Canberra Highlights tour, tempt your tastebuds with the Cafe Culture walking tour's sensory coffee and cafe delights, or contact them to create a private, personalised tour to suit. Use the contact form on the Canberra Secrets website to let them know your requirements.
