What you'll do

We'll take an easy 1.5/2 hour stroll through the streets of Hobart - starting up Macquarie Street from City Hall ( the "House of Stoush" and location of many boxing and wresting matches) and as we walk Macquarie Street we'll point out key crimes scenes from the 1940's to the 2000's. We'll take you to the very spot where the last man to hang - committed murder and hid the evidence ! We'll show you a range of places around the city where gunman and bikies exchanged shots, where murders occurred and violence was the rule. The tour will highlight contemporary true crime scenes and some lighter moments . Where did police informers tip-off the cops? Why were there bullet holes inside the old CIB building? Retired Inspector David Plumpton has decades of inside knowledge to make this tour unique. The longest crime scene, the biggest DNA breakthrough are also on our tour. We end with special access to the Police Museum in Bathurst Street where the records and artefacts rest.

Your hosts

Retired Tasmanian Police Inspector David Plumpton knows Hobart as only a detective can. Our comfortable walking tour looks at some of the old and more recent history of murder and mayhem around the City. Hobart has an intriguing dark past. Over many years Garn Pearce has written, narrated and explored crimes stories for the national broadcaster - and as a freelance researcher too. Cruising with retired D.I. Plumpton we share the yarns you wont find in tourist guides. See the crime scenes of the lesser known parts of the city. Bring your camera, a curious mind and plenty of questions about past investigations. It's a 1.5/2 hour stroll around inner Hobart (or by special booking a car tour).
