In the 1920s and 30s, Sydney was a boomtown for vice and criminal enterprises to build criminal empires due to a legal loophole, opportunities were readily available to women.

Two women who prospected through this era were Tilly Devine and Kate Leigh. Blancmange Productions present a Razorhurst Walking Tour, where you discover more about these two powerful ladies and the other characters of the period, including Jim Devine, Guido Calletti, Nellie Cameron and Frank Green.

During the tour, participants are taken to locations in Darlinghurst, Kings Cross and Potts Point, where the crimes took place, where the criminals lived and where the blood battles occurred during the Razor Wars.

Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. If the weather isn't suitable, you'll be advised of cancellation two hours or more prior to the start time.
