The City of Ryde and Macquarie University Partnership


Free Guided Walks Program


The City of Ryde, through its Catchment Connections project has teamed up with Macquarie University to run a Free Guided Walks Program throughout the university campus.

Members of the community are invited to stroll around the campus to learn about the University's 'hidden secrets'. Professional tour guides share their expert knowledge in:

  • local heritage
  • plants, birds, bugs
  • outdoor sculptures and other artworks
  • museums and collections
  • campus initiatives which seek to enhance sustainability around Mars Creek

Here's a sample of what’s on offer in the year ahead:
