About
Take a Walk on the Dark Side... Don’t be fooled by the bright lights and bustling city streets. This city has a past…a dark past… Enjoy a leisurely guided walking tour retracing the steps of the city's most infamous men. Transport yourself back in time to a seemingly lawless world of brawlers, fraudsters, and love triangles gone wrong. Uncover the dark secrets that lurk behind every historic building and alleyway. Wander the city streets with your tour guide and experience firsthand the rich history that once reigned supreme around every corner. Book your ticket now for a unique investigation into the criminal underbelly that once plagued this fine city. The glamour of current day Brisbane tried to hide its brutal and bloody past, but there is only so much the bright lights of Bris-Vegas can mask. Forget what you think you know about Brisbane and join us for a jaw-dropping trip down a memory lane you never knew existed. ...stories the city tried to forget...

Favourite part was seeing some of the old Brisbane, some parts gruesome but good to know the buildings are still standing. Must be some great ghost stories in them. India our host was very knowledgeable.
