Guess what? Our city is haunted... really haunted! It is quite sad considering that so many unfortunate Melbourne people turned into ghosts, and are now stuck here, their chill presence felt on our otherwise innocent Melbourne streets. On this tour we find out about several of these characters. This tour has been both well attended and received with great acclaim, often a standing ovation afterwards.
Tours are theatrical, told in an appropriate creepy voice, with the guide in costume, enthusiastically recounting historical details and present haunting, and carrying electric lantern.
The narrator himself is dressed as a 'ghost', who died in the city in 1851, explaining his current costume. He will tell you the tale of his grizzly demise, and why he haunts the city to this day, among tales he has heard from other ghosts! WARNING: The stories recounted have their grizzly, not to mention weird and chill moments, which may send a shiver down your spine!
.... Good evening, my name is Bartholemew Roberts. I have walked the streets of Melbourne for 120 years, unable to return home. My last recollection before this, was an apparent accident, which I will tell you about.
It takes a week of intense meditation for me to adopt a human appearance for two hours. I now use this time to tell to all who will listen, about my friends and colleagues, whose passage to the other side, was... sadly interrupted. There are others who are like me, but who cannot be seen the strong light of the sun. Will you accompany me, this way? Perhaps... we will meet one...
What you get:
A personal, professional and entertaining tour. We will walk past some eclectic scenery, in particular, world-class examples of architecture:
- Melbourne's Phantom of the Opera
- The Hotel guests stalked by a female ghost
- The Ghosts of Treasury
- The horrible events of the Eastern Arcade Gun Alley Murder, 1921, with a twist in the tale.
- A Flinders Lane Ghost
- The Ghosts of Treasury
- The Tasma Terrace ghost and the wacky verdict of the all-male jury!
- The Horrible Secret History of the Yarra!
- The Pirate Ship that Vanished into oblivion
But wait... there is more!
- This is also a Ghost Hunting Tour! In the Eastern Arcade, as well as on Flinders Lane, we even pass around ghost-hunting apparatus (Dowsing Rods, while explaining their function and use) to encourage guests to pinpoint the location of the temperature anomalies we have picked up!
