This tour was really well organised. It's clear they've done their research and put a lot of thought and consideration into the tour. They had some really interesting stories and facts to share. The tour goes past many Canberra institutions and monuments which the tour guides were happy to share information about. Would highly recommend!

Learning new stories about our history and balancing the picture with a focus on remarkable women who went out on a limb to make our society more inclusive. It was lead by remarkable women Sita and Ripley. They were well researched, rehearsed and most engaging. As the co-ordinator of the local heritage festival I've run many and been on many Canberra tours. This passed with flying colours. It was a grey drizzly morning but the tour was booked out and it brightened all the participants' day. A 3 km stroll, well paced.

Hi Linda, thanks so much for your positive feedback! We loved having you on our tour and sharing the hidden history of women's lives. The work you're doing with the local heritage festival is incredible. It means a lot to us that you highly recommend our tour. It's great to hear you loved how we intentionally shared a more diverse, balanced and inclusive history. As you mentioned on the tour, it's great to discover more about women like Rose Scott and the radical things they accomplished.

Thanks!

Living in Canberra for 25 years, I was excited to hear the stories of women who shaped our democracy. The walking tour was easy, the Parliamentary triangle is nice and flat and the information was interesting, some times funny and really educational. The tour guides were very well informed, engaging and clearly loved sharing these stories. Loved it and highly recommend!

A most interesting and entertaining 2 hours walking around the National Triangle in the company of two vibrant young women, who are passionate about the history of our nation and keen to share stories of some of those left out of that history. Do yourself a favour and join one of their ‘She Shapes the Nation’ tours! For me, I’m looking forward to ‘SSTN Part 2’ and any other tours they come up with. Right now, I’m following up on the history behind the stories, links provided on the wonderful ‘recipe’ postcards Sita and Ripley gave us at several of the stops.

This is a terrific walking tour for visitors and locals alike. Through women’s stories I was acquainted with all the important national institutions and icons in the Parliamentary triangle and saw them in a new light. The young women who lead the tour are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The walking is easy. Loved the pressies and recipes with a twist!
