About

Canberra Secrets Personalised Tours mission is to share a unique guided tour experience that can only be found in Australia’s national capital, Canberra.

margwade-28sep2016-013Canberra Secrets Personalised Tours provide a true local perspective of what makes this city tick, highlighting the secrets and the quirky within — from the national attractions, through to the city’s thriving café culture and the wonders of the Australian bush.

Based on the successful Canberra’s Secrets* publications by Margaret (Marg) Wade (1999, 2003 and the soon-to-be-published third edition in 2017) these tours are the keys to unlock the heart and soul of Canberra — the ‘secrets’.

  • Look for the 2017 edition of ‘Canberra Secrets’ #canberrasecrets @canberra_secrets

Our Aim

Our aim is to share information through Canberra Secrets books and also through our tours.

Canberra has a warm, fascinating human side, which the locals know and love. It’s a wonderful place in which to live and visit. Canberra abounds with things to see and do and reveals a vibrancy and sense of fun which we will share with you! Canberra Secrets personalised tours provide the quintessential Canberra experience.

It is important to us to share with you locally-sourced, innovative products — so you may get to sample and experience some special treats along the way!

You can take one of our listed tours, or just call us with a suggestion or request and we will design a personalised tour that’s just perfect for you.

And it started with a book!

Marg Wade has a passion for Canberra and has written two very successful editions of Canberra’s Secrets in 1999 and 2003 — a great guide book that highlights a local’s perspective of Canberra and what makes it tick.

Marg particularly seeks out the things that are behind the scenes and different — the ‘secrets’. A third edition is on its way, due for publication in 2017.

For many years Marg has been taking visiting family, friends and international colleagues around Canberra, showing them the things she loves. Marg has worked in media and communications roles within Canberra’s cultural attractions and environment sector, researching and promoting Canberra on radio, television and in print.

So now it’s time to share all that with you as Marg takes you on Canberra Secrets Tours. Book now!
