On the Melbourne's Underbelly Crime Tour you will see the city as never before. As well as taking in some of the Melbourne's mainstream attractions, this 4-hour tour will take you deep into Melbourne's dark side. Learn about the tragic wrongful conviction of the Gun Alley Murderer, try and solve the mystery of Australia's most daring armed robbery, and hear the sad story of the infamous Society Murders of Margaret Wales-King and Paul King by their own son.

Your professional guide will share fascinating insights and gruesome details of major crimes throughout the city, as well as delving into the minds of the criminals who commit them. What made a promising tennis player walk into a Melbourne post office and start shooting? Why did an American soldier go on a killing spree in the early hours of the morning?

End your tour with an 'arresting experience' at Melbourne City Watch House where a 40-minute interactive experience lets you find out what its like to be arrested and locked up! You will also receive a 50% discount on entry to the Old Melbourne Gaol, if you want to explore further at your own leisure.
