The Razorhurst Walking Tour is a two hour true crime walking tour through the streets of Kings Cross, Darlinghurst and East Sydney that takes you back in time to the places where criminals lived and their crimes took place.

The time between the wars saw the role of women changing and two characters (Tilly Devine and Kate Leigh) made history for their prominence as criminals that was not repeated anywhere else in the world, even though a lot of the conditions were similar in terms of prohibition and the recovery from the war.

Hear fascinating stories about their lives and the people around them on this tour.

Highly recommend walking East Sydney laneways where history comes alive with storytelling!

Just found Kate Leigh's sly grog shop address so changed the image to show it. You can see it next to the Light Rail station at Surry Hills.
