Murder on Sydney Harbour: 200 Years of Blood in the Water

Many a body has washed up on the shores of Sydney Harbour over the last 235 years. In this talk you will hear the dark stories of horrifying murders committed on our fair harbour. Over a glass of wine, you will hear the details, investigate the evidence and consider the court proceedings.

Step back in time and discover the tales of several blood-curdling murders committed on Sydney Harbour over the last 235 years. Sydney Harbour is one of the world’s most beautiful and recognisable natural harbours. It has been a centre of trade, industry and recreation since it first flooded approximately 8,000 years ago. However, its wharves, coves, points and bays have also been places where horrifying crimes have been committed, and grizzly remains were disposed of, only to wash up in the strangest of places.

Join Sydney Historian Elliot Lindsay, at the Queen Street Lounge of the stunning art deco Woollahra Hotel, for a glass of wine as he reveals the harbours dark secrets to you.

Discuss the investigation, the evidence, the court proceedings and the executions relating to murders cases at McMahons Point, Cremorne Point, Campbells Cove, Rushcutters Bay, Balmain, Woolloomooloo Bay, Darling Point and off Fort Denison.

Sydney Harbour will never look the same.
