Patrick Mayne Tours – Coach

Patrick Mayne Montage GREY 2016 680x340

One of Brisbane’s oldest mysteries is the 1848 “Moreton Bay Murder”. A sawyer was found butchered in the town of Kangaroo Point – some say the wrong man was convicted of the murder.

This tour explores the life, family and legacy of the infamous Patrick Mayne – who is suspected to be the true killer. Patrick Mayne was a self-made man who became one of Brisbane’s richest men and land owners, but was his empire really built on blood money from a murder?

This 2.5 hour coach tour takes in the key locations of Patrick Mayne’s life and death in Brisbane including Kangaroo Point, St Stephens Cathedral and Toowong Cemetery*.
