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.
