About The Old Melbourne Ghost Tour:


Join Lantern Ghost Tours on a trip back back to the wild and booming era of 19th century Melbourne. This was a time of smoky China Town opium dens and gold rush fever, where poor houses provided a ready supply of bodies for medical science and famous opera singer Federici gave his most dramatic performance, plummeting to death in front of his audience.

Meet your guide and fellow guests outside the Young & Jackson Hotel at 20:30. From here you'll embark on a 90 minute journey around Melbourne's historic streets and buildings, hearing tales of dramatic events and unsavoury characters as you go. Above all else, keep your senses sharp for hints of paranormal activity!
