      Gangsters, Brothels and Lolly Shops

      Take a trip back in time to when Melbourne's red-light district was in the CBD and the crime syndicates and the crime bosses were women.

      Walk through downtown Melbourne's 'Little Lon' district and learn of an era where there was much more on offer at candy stores than just confectionery and soft drinks. Explore an underworld which was predominantly run by women and discover stories of the way they stood their ground against well-known gangsters such as Squizzy Taylor. Along the way you will stop outside buildings which were once brothels and sly grog shops (speakeasies) and hear stories of what occurred within their walls and on the streets and laneways around them.

      You will receive a booklet containing photographs of the people featured on the tour so that you can put a face to their adventures.

      Cost: 25.00
