Tours & Speakers

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 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.
