Tour guides accompany groups of visitors or tourists on organised tours and activities providing them with expert information on attractions. They are highly knowledgeable in their specialist area and may impart information on history, local customs and practices, environmental and built attractions, restaurants and entertainment. A university degree is not always necessary for employment as a tour guide, and TAFE and other training facilities provide industry specific certificate courses. University studies in a relevant area such as the environment, history or aboriginal culture may however increase prospects for both employment and career advancement by providing specialist knowledge not attained in other courses.
