Bondi Badlands Historical Violence Walking Tour

Delivered by Greg Callaghan, author of the true crime novel Bondi Badlands, the tour provides a detailed insight into the lives of four gay men who sadly went missing or lost their lives nearby Marks Park, Bondi.

Intended to raise awareness and contribute to community healing, the tour explores local and LGBTIQ history and sheds light on the circumstances that gave rise to the wave of violence during the 1980’s and 1990’s and pays respect to the many lives impacted.

This engaging and informative walking tour will take you around picturesque Mackenzies Headland, Bondi.
