Overview

Launching January 2021

Inspired by all the true crime documentaries and podcasts out there, we set upon discovering the locations of where many of Melbourne's crime stories took place.

This 9km running tour you'll hear the story of early 1900's crime king Squizzy Taylor, you'll discover the former city slums which were once a form of red light district, and you'll hear the story of the Brownout Strangler which is a bizarre story in itself.

There are eight true crime stories to discover that will make you shake your head and wonder how life was once rather different!

We'll finish with one last story as we share a beer (or alternative) from a pub where one of the characters you'll meet used to hang out at and shoot at passersby.
