Course Lecture / symposium
Since long before the television franchise, Sydney has been obsessed by its “underbelly”. This week, we tour through all things underground, including the Tank Stream, disused under-harbour mining tunnels, subsumed graveyards, the toxic afterlife of heavy industry, and the drowned valley beneath Warragamba Dam. And, of course, we discuss Sydney’s lively criminal history, using archival crime scene photographs.
