DESCRIPTION

Balmain is Sydney’s most famous ‘pub-urb’ as it has the highest pub to people ratio in Australia.

Balmain has been the home of duelling colonists, escaped convicts, gangsters and football players that can’t be killed. Combine all of them in the place that has more pubs per person than anywhere else in Australia and you’ve got a recipe for some of the most colourful local history in the country.

The pubs here have seen it all, convicts, movie stars, gangsters, Olympians and even been the birthplace of a major political party.

This 3 hour tour walking weaves through the streets and stories of Balmain visiting 4 of its most iconic pubs where you can enjoy a choice of craft beer or wine in each.

Tour highlights include:
– Balmain’s Oldest Pub
– The Watch House
– Escape from Cockatoo island
– Balmain gangsters
– The Balmain Tigers’ ‘Team of the Penitentiary’
– Duelling colonists
– The murderous confectioner
– The hidden treasure of Australia’s most audacious robbery
