Fiona Sweetman

Born and raised in Melbourne, Fiona is the proprietor of Hidden Secrets Tours, a indulgent walking tour company, for visitors and locals alike, focusing on the creative community of Melbourne. Mildly dyslexic, Fiona was never a great devourer of books, but acquiring knowledge through words, language, and history has been a passion of adulthood.

An avid collector of poetry books, and writings on Melbourne history, it was discovered that one of her forebears influenced some of Melbourne’s early readers... finding the site of the first Hill of Content Book Shop.. So with various family ties in publishing, esteemed ancestors, and an interest in promoting creative Melbourne endeavours, Fiona was excited by a meeting in 2008 with Dale Campesi of Arcade Publishing, and the opportunity to present a special tour of Melbourne’s literary history. Fiona has designed a few tours for special Melbourne festivals, this being the first project with The Melbourne Writers Festival, and hopes to be one of many in the future.
