About us


Canberra Secrets Personalised Tours is the boutique tour business of owner-operator and passionate Canberran, Margaret (Marg) Wade. Marg provides unique, highest-quality, tailored tour experiences of Canberra and the region for Canberrans and national and international tourists. These tours expose the gems and secrets within the capital’s national icons and its lesser-known or hidden attractions. Tours tap into the Canberra region’s very latest happenings and are a fun exploration of its cultural heart, its heritage, its excellent food and wine, and the natural wonder that is the Bush Capital.

Not only that, Marg Wade is recognised by the tourism industry for her passion and all she does to promote the capital. She was recently awarded the Australian Tourism Export Council (ATEC, ACT Branch) the 2019 Captain Trevor Haworth Award for Outstanding Contribution by an Individual to the Australian Tourism Industry. She was also a finalist in the 2019 Canberra Women in Business Awards in two categories: Canberra Businesswoman of the Year and Micro Business. Canberra Secrets Personalised Tours punches above its weight for delivering Canberra’s top-rating tours! 






And it started with a book!  


Tired of the outdated perception of Canberra being all roundabouts and politicians, Marg Wade has spent decades researching researching, writing and promoting fabulous things to see, do, explore and enjoy in the capital and the region. She has self-published three editions of Canberra’s Secrets — a great guide book (1999, 2003 and 2018), highlighting hundreds of quirky, fun, ‘behind the scenes’ secrets. No-one knows Canberra better than Marg Wade.

Canberra Secrets Personalised Tours are Canberra’s top-rated tours providing first-class service with accurate commentary and the very latest on what’s happening in Canberra. 

So now it’s time to share all that with you as Marg takes you on Canberra Secrets Tours.
