Award coverage for tour guides

Tour guides offer urban or site tours and share their knowledge on certain topics, such as information about a location, cultural or historical issue.

Award coverage for tour guides depends on:

  • the industry or industries their employer operates in
  • the specific role and responsibilities of the employee.

Industry award coverage

An industry award covers a tour guide if:

  • their employer operates in the industry defined in the award
  • there's a classification which matches the employee's duties and qualifications.

For example, a tour guide may be covered by one of the following industry awards:

  • Amusement Award
  • Hospitality Award
  • Live Performance Award
  • Passenger Vehicle Award
  • Racing Clubs Events Award
  • Wine Award.

No industry award coverage

Tour guides not covered by an industry award are covered by the Miscellaneous Award. They’ll be classified based on their duties and qualifications.
