Have you ever walked past a city building and thought:

"That's a fine building... I wonder what went on in there?"

Do you know, I used to think the same thing, and this fostered a drive to investigate.

Hello, My name is Charles...

I am an ex history student with a PhD in History. Born and bred in Melbourne, I founded this company, around the idea of providing a mixture of entertainment as well as a vivid feel for the location and its history, with some fun anecdotes, possibly unmatched or at least unmentioned by other tours.

I am a Toastmasters 'Competent Communicator.' I have been both a mentor and course leader in 'Speechcraft' classes, helping to motivate and train up corporate all-stars from various prestigious financial and real-state institutions in the arts of effective communication and public speaking.

A traveller...

Mark Twain, wrote something interesting and wonderful about Australian history:

Australian history is almost always picturesque; indeed, it is so curious and strange, that it is itself the chiefest novelty the country has to offer, and so it pushes the other novelties into second and third place. It does not read like history, but like the most beautiful of lies. And all of a fresh new sort, no mouldy old stale ones. It is full of surprises, and adventures, and incongruities, and contradictions, and incredibilities; but they are all true, they all happened.
