What to Expect
Meet your ghost host in front of the "i" at the Melbourne Visitor Information Centre for the start of a tour that will take you back to the 19th-century and reveal some of the city’s favourite haunts.
Dive down hidden lanes and past iconic landmarks, including Flinders Street Station, Hosier Lane, and Parliament House. Hear stories from when the spices of China Town masked the smoke of the opium dens. Discover poor houses and the home of the genteel who did anything necessary to advance medical science.
Visit the locations of Melbourne's most tragic crimes, such as the Gun Alley murder. Try to make contact with the city’s most famous ghost, the opera singer Federici whose most dramatic performance saw him plummet to his death in front of the audience.
