What to expect

Visit the Melbourne's oldest suburb, Fitzroy. In the early 1900's it was known to police as the home of Melbourne's criminals. Fitzroy was also the home of a high percentage of Melbourne’s low budget brothels and most of its sly grog shops. Shortly after World War I 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. Your tour guide will share insights gathered from original police files as you'll be taken past the former crime dens of the era and a tour booklet puts faces to the characters featured.
