Join us in welcoming Brisbane's infamous "man in black", Jack Sim to Brisbane Dymocks this March. Jack will share his intimate knowledge of stories of Brisbanes past, especially crime stories, ghost tales and most unscrupulous jail birds.
Jack Sim has dedicated his life to preserving the details of things and subjects that all of us find both macabre and thrilling. Since last century Jack Sim has become an iconic character in SouthernQueensland, seen late at night undertaking his Crime Tours and Ghost Tours, with a collection of other knowledgeable hosts, in historic sites such as Boggo Road Gaol, Toowong Cemetery and South Brisbane Cemetery. His work promoting history and heritage to visitors and locals has been seen in national and international media and documentaries such as Getaway, Extra, and the Seven Network's Great South East. He has strived to gain greater recognition for the value of storytelling and oral history and he has been the longest running operator of ghost tours on mainland Australia.
Jack Sim has also earned himself many fans presenting Crime @ Nine with Walter Williams every Monday evening on radio 4BC (1116am), where he discusses true crime, from Brisbane and international history, some infamous, others long forgotten. As well as a guest on the Paranormal Panel with Tino Pezzimenti from UFO Research Queensland discussing all things paranormal.
Join this dark historian as he strives to undertake us on a journey to the unpleasant side of society, that no-one knew existed or wanted to. This event is free but bookings essential. Books will be available to purchase at the event.
