Madame Brussels Walk
Join Terry Ashton and explore the Jewish connection to the red light district of 19th century Melbourne.
Taking in former pubs, synagogues, warehouses and more, you’ll learn all about the ‘Queen of Evil’ Madame Brussels and life in those heady times.
Meet on the corner of Lonsdale and Spring Streets (opposite Parliament Station).
This Walk supports our Wild: Stories of a community pushing boundaries exhibition.
