This tour, led by an Indigenous guide, will weave the history of Aboriginal Sydney with the growth and development of the University of Sydney. The tour begins in Victoria Park and ends at the Charles Perkins Centre.

This tour explores how the University grounds were used by Aboriginal people before European settlement, the history of western intellectual engagement with Indigenous people, and the ways several disciplines of the University utilised traditional knowledge in research and teaching. The tour follows the pathways the University has taken towards reconciliation with the first Australians in recent decades.


The full tour lasts one and a half hours. A shorter one hour version of the tour is available upon request.

Tours can be booked for Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays), minimum numbers apply. Bookings are essential, and are best made at least a week in advance.
