We have fun, work hard and aim high - to be the best we can be.

As a local, independent 5 star family business we've been giving history a ‘damn good telling’ since 1985.  The unique personality of our team shines through everything we do and guarantees a warm welcome and memorable experience for our visitors. 

Our multiple awards and reputation recognise our desire to give the best quality experience – for our visitors, our team and local community.


A Warm Welcome for Everyone

Mercat Tours promises to provide valued Living Wage jobs and make diversity, equity, and inclusion part of everything we do - from the team we nurture, the visitors we welcome and the history we share.

We are continually growing to fulfil our ‘why’ – to make meaningful connections that benefit everyone in an inclusive way for all.

In the last few years, we’ve doubled our team to 50 people. In the past we have been bigger and have learnt that operating at this smaller scale means we look after our team, visitors and community far better. 

We’re responsible for all the choices we make - how we run our business, spend our money and mindful that our team is representative of our visitors.  We want to create a sense of belonging for everyone at Mercat and will keep working hard to review and achieve this. Thank you for being a part of our community.
