It's time for Canberra's secrets to come out of the closet. Led by an extremely passionate local queer guide, this tour takes you to some of the key sites where queer Canberrans shaped history. From the site of the city's first Pride Festival to the first privately (and woman!) owned gay club to the park where gay men used to meet under the cover of darkness, each stop is a chapter in our community's rich queer narrative.

Stand where barriers were broken and rights won. Feel the legacy of those who fought for our freedoms. This walking tour is a celebration of the unsung heroes who forever changed the social fabric of our city (and had fun and fell in love along the way!). So, get your facts straight and your history queer on this LGBTQ+ history tour. Book today for an unforgettable experience that connects, educates, and inspires.
