Join us on a 2 hour walking tour as we explore the streets of Fitzroy’s old crime district and get to know the colourful characters who lived in Melbourne’s old crime district 100 years ago. The Fitzroy True Crime Walking Tour is constructed and delivered by writer and historian Michael Shelford and utilises the original police files from the era 1890-1920’s. Former brothels, speak easies, gangland murders and shootouts with cops, are just a few of the subjects featured on the tour.
Each tour member receives a free booklet which contains photos of the characters discussed along the way.
Fitzroy is located on the fringe of Melbourne’s CBD and is easily accessible by regular trams to and from the City.
