Ute Junker

Ute Junker has spent decades travelling the world and telling stories of special places and the people who belong there for ABC radio and articles in publications such as the Australian Financial Review and the Sydney Morning Herald. Now she is turning her attention closer to home, exploring the hidden histories of her own Kings Cross neighbourhood.



“Ute was very knowledgeable. She kept up a good pace with the talking and walking, and made everything interesting. She was also very friendly, personable and great at communicating with the whole group.”
Helen M.  |  Trailblazers, Renegades and Activists, 2021

“Ute was an amazing guide ­– I learnt many things I didn’t know, and her storytelling of the history was compassionate and very engaging.”
