JACK SIM PRESENTS
THREE TRUE CRIME
TOUR 1 – Bloody Brisbane CBD Crime Tour
Uncover the dark stories of the capital of the Sunshine State including Execution of a Warrior, Johnny Stuart, Mad Butcher of Queen Street, The Bitten Fingers, Death in a Laneway and more…
Behind the modern façade discover the dark heart of the capital. Walk three city blocks through two centuries of Brisbane’s criminal history on a 1.5 hour guided tour and visit real true crime scenes. The River-City will never seem the same as we step back in time, to unveil the past – our quiet streets transform into places of terror as the locations of some of the most ghastly and cold-blooded murders and vicious crimes are revealed. This is the True Crime Tour to begin with – Brisbane’s original and best – operating since 1998.
TOUR 2 – South Brisbane Cemetery Crime Tour
Hear true crime stories including Fifty Years A Screw, Death by Poison, Xmas Eve Murders, Devil’s Plot, Innocent As the Man Who Sentenced Me, Teenage Tomahawk Killer, and more…
Brisbane’s burial places are where many of the city’s infamous characters and tragic stories came to an end. Visit the graves of Australia’s last bushranger, a poisoned prison warder, cold-blooded criminals, and victims of crime in historic South Brisbane Cemetery on this 1.5 hours walking tour. Many killers – including those executed on the gallows at nearby Boggo Road Gaol (Jail) – are buried here… some are at rest, whilst some are not…
TOUR 3 – The Moonlight State Fortitude Valley Crime Tour
Hear true crime stories of Brisbane’s iconic Valley including The Haunted Hotel, Battle of Brisbane, Bubbles Bath-House, Hot Lips, and the deadly Whiskey Au Go Go.
Discover the seedy underbelly of Brisbane in the 1970s/80s on this 1.5 hour guided walking tour through infamous Fortitude Valley – where illegal casinos, strip-clubs and brothels were the norm – and visit the site of the notorious and tragic Whiskey Au Go Go firebombing! Though this trendy inner-city suburb is being gentrified, it is one of the oldest places in Brisbane. Crooked crims lurk on every corner, and there are many shadowy tales to be told…
Brisbane’s original true crime tours are researched and operated by crime-writer Jack Sim, publisher of the Murder Trails Series BLOODY BRISBANE Volumes 1 & 2.
