When blood is thicker than water – the hidden history of Sydney’s North Shore

On this historic tour which takes place at dark, you will visit a world where you can laugh, and maybe even start seeing things you have looked at forever, in a whole new way. You will hear things that will run chills down your spine – and leave you with the adrenaline rush of a good, fun, scare!
We will travel back in time to the building of the North Shore Line, the harsh realities of life in William Gore’s Convict farm, the often blood-curdling realities of 19th Century medicine, and the brutal truths of life and death. Learn about the sinister past of the North Shore and the different ways people dealt with it. We guarantee that by the end of this tour, you will not be able to look at many of the suburbs, streets and landmarks of Sydney's North Shore in the same way, ever again!

We will explain in colourful, gritty detail, the context of how the pioneering families of Sydney's North Shore created the places we know today, and how this connects to us now.
