What To Expect

Right on the edge of Melbourne's CBD is Melbourne's oldest suburb, Fitzroy. In the early 1900's this locality was considered by the police to be the home of Melbourne's criminals and the home of criminals generally. Fitzroy was also the home of a high percentage of Melbourne's low budget brothels and most of its sly grog shops speakeasies. It was the only area of Melbourne considered so dangerous that police were directed to work the beat in duos after dark. Shortly after WWI, Melbourne's criminal community split into 2 rival factions, sparking Australia's greatest ever gang war: the Fitzroy Vendetta.

The Fitzroy True Crime Tour takes you on a journey from the suburb's wealthy beginnings through to the heights of the gang war and its repercussions. Tour guide shares insights gathered from original police files as he takes you past the former brothels, sly grog shops speakeasies and crime dens of the era. A 32 page tour booklet puts faces to the characters featured.
