Our tours offer inspirational and practical examples of a more sustainable way of living, with relevance to a wide range of people:
Tours typically visit all areas of Christie Walk, including the outstanding roof garden as well as spending time inside one of our homes.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Simon Fisher on 0405 060 510.
A tour can be arranged on any day of the week, provided one of our enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides is available.
Minimum tour fee $100 (see per person rates below).
Maximum group size 15 per guide.
We can have 2 guides touring with separate groups at the same time.
Tours can be adapted to suit particular curriculum needs of school or tertiary students.
Student tours generally last one hour. We will try to accommodate your preferred date and time.
Price per student:
Tours for workplace groups, community groups, professional organisations and members of the public can be customised to suit your interests and available times. We will be happy to book a tour just for you, your family and friends or special interest group.
Public tours last up to 1.5 hours. We are also open to making special arrangements for your group.
Price per person:
If you are interested to join a public tour sometime soon, maybe at short notice, why not ask us to waitlist you? We will contact you as soon as there is a tour coming up. But there’s no obligation – if the first tour date doesn’t suit you, maybe the next one will. Just give us your name, email, and preferably a mobile number – and an indication of how available you are.
A typical tour (student or public) will demonstrate the following and can also be adapted to suit visitor interest:
Dress appropriately for the weather as you will be outside on reasonably smooth and level paved areas for most of the time. There are sheltered areas if weather is showery. There are stairs to the roof garden so please wear comfortable shoes – a lift is available if you find stairs difficult.
Please also note the roof garden has two active beehives.
