Critique is an art form that requires a light touch, with a splash of irony and good humour to soften the blows.

Grisly & Ghostly Backstreets of Paradise
Explore the underbelly of old Surfers Paradise. Discover the dark and seedy centre of greed, gluttony and betrayal, where ghosts still linger.

Let the lanterns light your way on this guided tour of the city's backstreets and laneways to reveal the macabre secrets and sordid gossip of the Glitter Strip.

Each guided tour is expected to take 1.5 hours in a leisurely two kilometre walk over flat paths around the streets of the city. The organisers judge paranormal activity in the area as 'moderate'. A dinner package is also available. Children must be aged eight years or over.
