Wayside Walks with Andrew Windsor

*There are no Wayside Walks currently scheduled. Watch this space for updates in 2021*

Wayside Walks is a tour unlike any you’ll ever find in a guide book. It takes people around Kings Cross and Elizabeth Bay where Andrew points out spots of significance along the way – the places where he slept and ate, other charities that are in the area and moments of how he came to know Wayside so well.

The host is Wayside employee and former rough sleeper, Andrew Windsor, who draws on his own experiences of homelessness and addiction to provide people with a rare insight into street life.

Book your tickets here.
