What to expect

Join us on an inspirational walking tour through the environmental heart of our city. 

 

Our Urban Eco and Sustainability Tour will introduce you to the projects, community groups and individuals who are saving our planet!

 

On this tour you will discover the green nooks in our city that have been transformed into incredible community spaces and urban gardens. You will gain an understanding of the importance of good eco-friendly urban design and bear witness to positive influence of urban greening. You will also be introduced to local innovative social enterprises who are shaping the future of business.

 

We will take a break at one of our favourite restaurants. Here you will be given the opportunity to taste native Australian foods! As you’re eating, you’ll learn about the foods and their importance in a sustainable food system. We will also discuss Aboriginal agriculture, way of life and what we can learn from the thousands of years of ancestral knowledge of this land. The tour will then wander through a natural green corridor restored to its original condition after years of abuse and then we conclude our walk at what is best described as an urban garden paradise! 

 

The perfect experience for visitors and locals alike!
