Pub Walker


Uncover the dodgy dealings, nefarious characters, and forgotten stories of New South Wale’s capital.

Politicians, governors, and professionals hands grease the wheels to keep the economy running, but occasionally those fingers get a little sticky. Come find out how business really gets done in the big end of town on The City Pub Walk.

On this two and a half-hour walking tour in Sydney, you meet the scammers and fraudsters (not always politicians), who bashed, murdered, and (in one case) robbed the whole state to achieve their KPIs.

Between tales of greed for green, we enjoy a few craft beers or wines in four of Sydney’s finest bars and pubs.


  • The heist of 1828
  • Jack Lang, bank robber
  • The Hop thief
  • Rum rebellion
  • The first execution
  • The Mad Dentist
  • Sydney’s dog day afternoon
  • The Pub Bank
  • John Boston’s brewery
  • Old George St
  • The pugilists pub

SOMETIMES THINGS CHANGE – Because our Sydney brewery tours are truly behind the scenes experiences sometimes our plans need to change to accommodate brewery operations. And sometimes we just know about beer goings on around town that are worth checking out, so we may change some parts of our tours. Whilst these changes are rare, we do reserve the right to make them. If you do have a MUST-SEE beer spot, please let us know when making your booking and we’ll do all we can to make it happen.
