Come for a visit and learn more about our work. We offer tours of our Kew Campus for groups. Our tours take approximately one and a half hours. They usually consist of:
- A visit to the nursery to watch the puppies play (provided there are puppies residing in the nursery at the time of the tour) as you learn about our raising programs.
- A visit to the Amsden Honour Garden to see memorial messages for Guide Dog handlers in raised lettering and Braille.
- A short video on the life of a Guide Dog with details on the service and support programs we offer, including Intensive Orientation & Mobility, Acquired Brain Injury Mobility, Occupational Therapy and Children’s Mobility Services.
Tours can be arranged between the hours of 10am and 2pm Monday to Friday. We require a minimum of 10 people per tour. To help cover costs, we ask for a contribution of $10 per person. Bookings are essential and fill quickly so please book in advance to secure your preferred day.
We are not taking bookings at the moment. Please check back with us in early 2019.

Do you want to hear the difference a Guide Dog can make for a person’s life through the lens of their own personal experience?
We have a range of trained speakers waiting to share their inspirational and heartwarming stories. Each speaker is accompanied by their Guide Dog, or the pup they are raising to become a Guide Dog.
A speaking engagement may cost $200+GST and generally takes 45 minutes plus 15 minutes for Q & A. All our speakers have working with children and police checks.
