Followed by a gin cocktail


I don't really have to introduce you to Miss Phryne Fisher. Novelist Kerry Greenwood's fictional character has been entering out livingrooms for quite some time now as she goes about solving murder mysteries with her inimitable sense of style.

She's highly fashionable, highly charged, sometimes quite outrageous. In an era when other women were darning their stockings and making Depression era outfits out of curtains, Phryne was a fashion goddess in silk gown and daytime ensembles to make anyone interested in fashion drool.

For those who have become captivated with this gutsy character there is an in-depth afternoon around Melbourne's CBD, which begins with an afternoon tea at Tasma Terrace (the gorgeous National Trust headquarters) followed by a walking tour where you can discover the production sites of the hit TV series 'Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries'.

They'll be some history and some fun.



And you have to love this. The three hour tour concludes with a specially created Phryne Fisher cocktail at Melbourne's famous Gin Palace.

Gin and sin. The gun toting, gartered Phryne would absolutely love it!
