Dr Jude; key science advisor and responsible for all scientific experiments which many describe as frightfully fun or frightfully sociopathic, depending on your point of view.
Not again - yet more of our guests putting the vice back into the Fortitude Valley and getting arrested!

Join us for a trip down The Valley's memory lane on a weekend sometime soon @
Just cruisin' around! 🛳️ 💧 ⚓ 😀
A blast from the past on this unplanned wine and cheese night true crime tour on the site of the old Newcastle gaol.
Beware!  The larrikins of The Rocks Push Gangs may be lurking around any corner...
I ain't lion.  Everybody had a great time.
Don't look now, but I think we've been spotted. 🕵️🤐🤐🤐🕵️
Feel yourself transported back in time on the Maitland High Street.  So full of True Crime History with a massive long street of virtually unchanged historic buildings. 😍
Care to walk down some of Brisbane's longest, dimly lit and cool laneways sometime?
It's not just the High Street that has all the true crime fun in Maitland. If only these backstreets could tell their tales for themselves...😮

Funny how this twilight image brings to mind the great riots of Free Church Street, Maitland from 1860.
A smiling, happy group is a great group to tour with, but where did that stain come from?
What are all these young punks doing on my lawn....!
In days of old, judgement was passed on defeated gladiators and true crime tour hosts by using a thumbs-up gesture for mercy & life and a thumbs-down for death.
There are some Crime Cruise tickets left for tomorrow night.  Join in before the winter months arrive!! 🛳️ ⚓ 😋 😀
Happy smiles pre Brisbane's True Crime Tour.  The post-tour shots are locked in an evidence vault somewhere! 😋
Newcastle really is lucky to have retained so many historic buildings from its history.  Some like this one being hidden away in the back streets of the old town.
Just a couple of Donah's hanging around 19th century Australia.  The donah's were experts at luring visiting sailors into darkened alleyways so that their larrikin boyfriends from the Push Gangs could extract the appropriate tolls.
Is it a jail? Is it a hospital? Or is it a really nice apartment? .....
This delightful young lady had a great time learning all there is to know about Newcastle's True Crime history.
Balmy summer nights and true crime.  Just chilling out by the Brisbane River, calmly discussing past events from the scene of the crime.
Thank you for sharing!  Looking sweet and innocent pre-tour! :-)

Getting ready for a true-crime tour, but do they look worried?
Is it legal to enjoy your job!?
Always great to see guests getting into the joyful spirit of Brisbane's True Crime Tour. 😀 😀 😀
The night lights of Brisbane verge on the spectacular at times, but should we be worried at this dash of blood-red before a True Crime tour!?
People you wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley from yesterday's True Crime Cruise.  I'm sure they killed me several dozen times through the course of the tour!
Another happy guest who will sleep soundly tonight after completing a private Sydney True Crime tour! 😁👮
Her job is a bit cruisey sometimes...😀
Thank you @krystalbujack Hoping we’ll see you again soon!! 😀😀😀
Stories in the moonlight
Everybody's feeling dark and crime-y
It's a fine and natural sight
Everybody, stories in the moonlight

A True Crime Tour group from early 2021 cautiously exploring down a dark hidden laneway of old Brisbane town.
Balmy, moonlit summer nights are the perfect nights to join Maitland's True Crime Tour.
More trouble for our guests during Brisbane's True Crime Tour.
