Taking a walk down some of Brisbane’s historic streets gives you the chance to learn all about the city’s dramatic past.

A trip to Brisbane can now include the chance to learn all about the city’s criminal past by taking part in one of its walking tours.

The Queensland Law Society has announced that next month it will be hosting a number of its criminal history tours after the event last year was so successful it was oversubscribed.

Stops on the tour include a visit to Boggo Road Jail, which has not been open to members of the public since 2006.

Paying a visit to the site may not be for the faint hearted, as it is rumoured to be haunted.

“Our criminal history tours offer the dark thrill of astonishment at our past and appreciation of how our justice system works,” explained Dr John de Groot, president of the Queensland Law Society.

Brisbane also offers a range of less frightening things to do, including the annual Ipswich Festival, showing the best in local music and dance.
