Eight Surry Hills murders will be revealed to your team, each shocked the nation.

These include…

  • The Surry Hills silk stocking strangler,
  • The Case of the Woolloomooloo Rose,

  • See some of the most amazing Victorian and Edwardian architecture in Sydney, including one of the oldest houses in Australia.

Casefiles eBook

Each member of your team will receive a complimentary copy of the Murders Most Foul: The Surry Hills Case Files ebook. The book contains the actual police evidence, crime scene photography, witness reports, newspaper articles and coroner’s reports for each case. As well as bonus information about the victims and perpetrators.

They will use the old photographs and maps to piece together clues to determine the exact spot where the crime was committed and, or, to reconstruct the events and potentially solve a cold-case mystery.

The book sells on Amazon for $19.99. Free with your ticket.

Royal Albert Hotel

The tour ends at the Royal Albert Hotel (winner of Beer & Brewer’s Best Beer Venue 2021) on the corner of Reservoir Street and Commonwealth Street. A nice table is reserved for the Murders Most Foul tour gang. However, you may choose to book a private room.

The Royal Albert Hotel, built-in 1927 was an old watering hole for local coppers from Surry Hills, Darlinghurst and Kings Cross. Notorious patrons included Roger “The Dodger” Rogerson and Frank “Bumper” Farrell.

Please note that tours will end here, however, if you desire your guide will walk you back to Central Station to make sure you get back nice and safe.
