Ce vei face

Join a passionate history guide on an exploration of Millers Point and discover the many faces of this murky maritime village through the ages.

As we roam the cobbled alleys, timber wharves and spectacular look-outs of this notorious neighbourhood, we'll unpack the forgotten lives of its local scallywags, sailors, larrikins and legends. Our quest will animate the tales of colourful convicts such as Jack "The Miller" Leighton — whose untimely death in 1826 reminds us that windmill-maintenance and heavy drinking are not a great match, and ‘merchant princes’ such as Captain Towns — whose excavated trove of long lost trade-goods offers a window into the treasures of Pacific shipping.

Best of all, our exploration will reveal the fascinating lives of two of the area's longest standing residents — The Lord Nelson Hotel & Brewery (1842) and The Hero of Waterloo Hotel (1843). These iconic drinking-wells are relics of another age whose sandstone walls are layered thick with the scars and secrets of all they've seen. Included in our visit to both of these historic Pubs will be a delicious glass of craft Beer — ensuring we truly savour the flavour of their stories and get a chance to uncover what still hides within their cellars.
If you like sea-faring whispers about the smuggling of rum, the Shanghai-ing of sailors and the curse of the black plague, then this is the tour for you!
Other things to note
This is an easy going walking tour in an urban setting however we will be climbing some stairs and covering some cobblestone / boardwalk terrain : thus unfortunately this tour is not appropriate for strollers / prams or wheelchairs. Please bring along 18+ photo ID as we will be entering pubs.

Hello, thanks so much for looking at my fun new experience in Byron Bay. My name is Max and I create and host cultural walking tours as a profession. It is my passion to bring local histories and forgotten characters back to life on walking adventures that are filled with imagery, storytelling and detailed information. Five years ago I launched Journey Walks (History, Crime & Culture Tours of Sydney) which has received over 300 five star reviews on Airbnb Experiences alone. In early 2020 I relocated to Byron and have spent the year busily researching (and experiencing) the fascinating local history, folk stories and unique natural beauty of this amazing slice of paradise. I have a Masters in History, Heritage & Museum studies, and a Bachelors in Communications & English — so in other words I'm a friendly local history-nerd & tour guide!
