What you can expect

If you love the opulence of the 1920s era, and a good ‘whodunnit’, you are going to adore this Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Walking Tour. Originally devised for the ‘Festival of Phryne’ in 2015, the tour proved so popular at the time that it has continued to operate.

Those familiar with the inimitable Miss Phryne Fisher — made famous through the popular books and ABC TV series — will know that the architecture and landmarks of Melbourne are as much lead characters as the lady herself. On this tour you’ll visit many of the CBD locations that have featured in the television series. [More]

The tour begins at the quirky Self Preservation Café, where the ambience and décor will take you back to the 1920s. Your tour guide is an absolute expert on both the original books and the TV production, and you’ll discuss your favourite episodes and storylines over an included afternoon tea.

Next, you’ll head off on foot at a relaxed pace to visit various filming locations from the series. These include well known landmarks such as Parliament House, the Old Treasury Building and the Hotel Windsor, and some lesser known locations as well. Rest assured there’ll be plenty of surprises along the way. As you stroll, your guide will bring up scenes from various episodes on her tablet and point out the landmarks featured.

To finish the tour in the most delightfully Phryne-inspired way, you’ll enjoy a specially created Phryne Fisher cocktail at the Gin Palace — one of the city’s fab inner-city watering holes.

Bring your favourite private detective’s world to life on this Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Walking Tour around the city.

    I am a big fan of the show and this tour was a fantastic way of adding a deeper vision of it. Guide Kathy was superb! She told us about the history of Melbourne and weaved it nicely with the show by showing us clips from the show at the extact places where they were filming it. Starting the tour with afternoon tea and ending it with Phryne Fisher in gin palace was cherry on top of the cake! Would do it again any time and would warmly recommend it.
