Corruption, drugs and organised crime in Australia.

From Robert Trimbole’s dominance of the cannabis trade in the 70s and Sydney’s gang wars in the 80s, to the rise of Cabramatta as the heroin capital of the nation, Smack Express takes a gripping, high-speed trip through the history of organised crime in Australia.

From the Balmain gang and the Coogee Mob, to the Telopea Street Gang and the Lebanese Connection, all the pieces of this puzzle fit together to create a fascinating portrayal of the drug industry in Australia and expose the truth about the multi-million dollar business, revealing its raw insides.
