From her perspective, strolling Brisbane's streets together on this 3 hour immersive tour, you will discover many of the extraordinary female characters who have contributed to our city's soul.

Know More about this tour

Rosa Praed (in character) will meet you at the Old School of Arts Building, 166 Ann Street, Brisbane CBD - look for the white picket fence.

This theatrically immersive walking tour will start promptly at 10am. You will then spend 3 hours together and learn the other half of the story: HerStory! Discover how challenges were faced and how innovation has been achieved by women across the spectrum ... marriage, science, politics, education, employment and careers, transport, religion, cultural awareness perspectives, the arts ... all will be revealed!
