Spend a spooky evening searching Melbourne for ghosts and ghouls during this haunting tour of Melbourne. Hear tales and legends of the city’s dark past while following your entertaining guide through one of three eerie locations. Choose from the Old Melbourne, Williamstown, and Pentridge Prison tours, and uncover the mysteries and that surround each hallowed spot.
What to Expect

For the Old Melbourne tour, meet at Federation Square. As you explore town, hear about Frederick Federici, an opera singer who has been haunting the Princess Theatre since 1888. Learn about the old city and the tragic past of the poorhouses that gave up their dead for medical advancement. Optionally upgrade to a dinner at a pub before the tour.

The Pentridge Prison tour starts in Coburg and reveals dark tales of some of Australia’s most infamous prisoners. Walk the spooky corridors as you listen to stories about bushranger Ned Kelly, gangster Chopper Reed, and more.

Or head to Williamstown to tour this Victorian seaport. Explore old cemeteries, hidden alleyways, the oldest morgue in Victoria, the Timeball Tower, and the city’s only opium den. Upgrade to a dinner at a local pub that is, of course, said to be haunted.

Girls Night Out

My girlfriend's and I had a great night out on a tour of Melbourne with Ken. Would definitely do another one in the future with this company. Really interesting hearing all the tales of old and particularly enjoyed the story of Princess Theartre.

Ok experience, but wouldn't recommend for anything other than a history lesson.

Tour guide was good, but stories were not always relevant to Melbourne ghosts. Nothing overly scary or revealing about Melbourne's past. Was a bit of a skeptic going in, but kept an open mind, even more of a skeptic now though.

Fantastic Spooky Tour

Great tour with an excellent guide. Takes you through the hidden laneways and encounter some ghostly tales on the way. Was busy due to other events going on in the city but would definitely recommend.
