Hyde Park: A Story of Lawless Beauty

Since the 1790s, Sydney’s Hyde Park has been a favourite place for locals and visitors alike to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy a sunny corner. However, by night, the park has been just as popular with those living on society’s fringe. Join historian Elliot Lindsay with academic and writer Dennis Altman on a walking tour of Hyde Park to discover the larrikins, razor gangsters, sex workers, boys in drag, preachers, polemics and cold-blooded killers that lurked in the park after dark for nearly 200 years.
