Depression-era Darlinghurst was a wretched den of illegal alcohol, drugs and prostitution. Gang wars raged, with rivals' penchants for cutthroat razors earning the area its infamous title, Razorhurst. This virtual tour of the same name takes you through the area's chequered past, combining video game, drama and travel adventure. Pick up a GPS movie player from the historical East Village Hotel before scouring the streets for virtual sly grog while dodging razor-wielding gangsters. A highly innovative and cutting-edge tour. Runs by appointment, 6.30-9.30pm, last game starts 8.30pm, bookings essential,
