Kerstin W.

Stirling, Australian Capital Territory, Australia

Welcome to Australia's Capital, I'm an experienced guide (since 1987) and enjoy sharing my love and knowledge of this city with you.

If you like a bit of history, context, insights and a bit of humour along the way, we will have a great time together.

I am lucky enough to have access to the best training at the Australian National University and most of our national institutions.

Whilst I have listed a few specific tours, other itineraries are available in the same time frame or other time frames are also available.

I can also do a combination of bus and walking. Have a look at the list and we can go from there.

Guiding special subjects:
1. Canberra's history including its planning and its architecture.
2. Parliament House: political, social and world history in context.
3. Australian War Memorial - history at war (big picture - some areas of campaign details)
4. National Gallery of Australia - in context of culture and history. Extra training for changing special exhibitions.
5. National Library - Treasures & changing exhibitions.
6. Wineries of the Cool Climate wine region.
7. Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and ACT touring loop including Deep Space Tracking Station and Lanyon Homestead.

I'm bilingual with German: Es wuerde mich freuen Ihnen Canberra, die Hauptstadt Australiens naeher zu bringen. Ich kenne mich auch relativ gut mit deutschen Systemen aus und kann die Vergleiche erleutern.
