Murder in Canberra

By Vonbare - 11 February 2010 22

We are thinking of holding a murder mystery night for my friend’s hen’s night in June and would love some suggestions on a suitable location for eating, drinking, dining with atmosphere in Canberra and surrounds. We will be a mixed group of ages and abilities.

Anywhere that would be a little spooky and in theme ….any ideas?


What’s Your opinion?

Trial will start on the 5th October 2010, DPP are going for double murder and arson, just waiting for the back log of the supreme court, thats why it’s taking soooooo long, it just sucks that the families have to wait so long for trial, as they say justice is a slow beast!

Cleo what’s happening with that case do you know? Haven’t heard anything for a while.

Clancy’s is long gone. It was great – old style – you could tie a dog up outside. they did get ito line dancing at night, but you can’t have everything…

It was/is part of the old Canberry Fair block next to the servo on the Federal hwy which is slated for tourism, and is full of really old buildings, but it about to become yet more apartments.

Such a shame. the over crowded northside could really do with some local activities.

Clancy’s Pub in Watson.

I never knew there was a pub in Watson or is it closed down now?

Of course you have got it wrong, it wasn’t a love triangle, they were all only friends, an ex-bikee, and no prositution involved, you are one of these persons who start rumours, get your facts straight idiot!

I reckon Rose Cottage at Tuggeranong would be worth a look. The party is in June and they have nice warm fires. You mention varying ages and abilities, and they have several buildings all around a courtyard. At night they look a little spoooooky.

Doesn’t matter who did it; the cops will never get a conviction

Didn’t the Carrington out at Bungendore used to run these??
Even if they didn’t, what better place for a Murder Mystery then somewhere that has a resident ghost.

That homestead behind Hume? You could make a cluedo theme there

A murder in Canberra? Needs a bikie theme!

Urge’s suggestion sounds good (I’ve heard the food there is excellent).

Rose Cottage might be another good place.

The last *alleged* murder was in Downer last year … a love triangle double murder and arson with links to bikie gangs and prostitution. That should get your guests hearts racing…

Clancy’s Pub in Watson was *alleged* to be one possible watering hole for one of the victims, try there for a starters.

The Green Herring in Gold Creek might be good. Old and creepy.

Sorry, this is Canberra. We don’t have murders.
Better make it a manslaughter mystery night.
