About

Dark Sydney is a site dedicated to exploring the darker side of Sydney’s history.

There are plenty of sites that will tell you all about the glossy, tourist-friendly side of this beautiful city. However we wanted something that dug into some of the darker history: Murders and other crimes, the occult, basically anything a bit mysterious or sinister.

Our criteria are a little blurry on purpose. We’re not so interested in recent happenings, so we generally limit ourselves to WWII and earlier, and given the name, try to restrict ourselves to events in Sydney and close surrounds.

We give warnings about particularly sensitive content at the beginning of the posts. That said, given the nature of the site, the reader should prepare themselves for some, well, darker content.
