Work with Us
Walks 101 is looking for bright, enthusiastic, curious people to lead walking tours around the city. Our daily walking tours appeal to visitors around the world who want to learn Melbourne’s culture, history and attitude.

We offer daily tours of Melbourne, our 11am Free Walking Tour, which operates on a pay-what-you-think-it’s-worth basis, a group of paid tours, which pays out a fixed fee.

Our guides are independent contractors. Working with Walks 101 means you can set your own schedule and work as much or as little as you choose. It also means your earning potential is unlimited. (Our guides report an average earning of $40-70/hour.)

REQUIREMENTS
  • Performance ability — Speaking to large groups of up to 40 people at a volume from which you can be heard
  • Research — Successful applicants will develop their own unique walking tour, both through independent research and shadowing our existing guides

  • Reliability — You must honour commitments to give tours 100% of the time
  • Legal — You must be legally allowed to work in Australia and comply with Australian law regarding self-employment and registration.
