Leonie - Sydney Walks Tour Guide

A true Sydneysider!

'Loves meeting people from different backgrounds, helping people understand Australia and its history'

Leonie is a true Sydneysider who enjoys meeting people from different backgrounds and nationalities, and helping them understand Australia and its history. Leonie is also many things besides a tour guide, including an opera singer, chef, researcher, and a teacher of tourism, so she brings a wealth of experience and perspective to her tours. She takes great satisfaction from being outdoors and seeing Sydney Harbour on a daily basis, and has been fortunate to have guided more than 50,000 people over the years through Australia’s most famous national icon, the Sydney Opera House.

Leonie’s extensive qualifications include Cert IV in Tourism (guiding), Advanced Diploma of Tourism, Diploma of Event Management, Diploma of Operatic Art from Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Diploma of Training Design and Development, Cert IV in Workplace Training and Assessment, and she is a professional member of the IATG. In 2016 Leonie was awarded the winner of the Ron Rathbone History Prize from Rockdale Council for her local history research. In addition to leading tours with Sydney Walks, she continues to work as a tour guide at the Sydney Opera House.
