Sydney Custom Tour - How It Works
Yes! We have a firm belief in making our tours accessible to all visitors. Private experiences are usually more adaptable so the guide can be 100% dedicated to mobility concerns throughout the walk and can custom design the best route for your needs.
Patricia is a member of the Professional Historians Association (NSW) with an MA in Public History. Her particular expertise is the early colonial and convict history of Australia, especially that of New South Wales and the Sydney region. She has worked on the assessment of heritage sites for listing on the State Heritage Register—the highest level of heritage recognition and protection in NSW and now works as a professional historian, heritage consultant and guide. Through her work in public history (the production of history for broader audiences), and as a keen traveller herself, she’s excited about telling to other travellers the stories of the settlement of NSW and life in the colony.
