Theatrical Melbourne Ghost Tour
"We are confident that we are Melbourne's best!"
WHERE: Outside State Library.
WHEN: We run a general tour every Saturday Night, 8 pm. Alternatively, a special group booking can be made, for another time. Please contact for details. (MINIMUM Number required, for tours to go ahead, booked in advance)
uess 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 John Hammond. 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.
Now... at a certain hour of the night I appear... I have a story 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...
We will walk past some eclectic scenery, in particular, world-class examples of architecture:
- Redmund Barry, a man cursed.
- The innocent victim of a hanging
- The ghosts of Old Melbourne Gaol
- The Beer Bottle Ghost
- Melbourne's Phantom of the Opera
- The Hotel guests stalked by a female ghost
- The Ghosts of Treasury and Tasma Terance!
