Took awhile to find the street, due to construction and roadworks. Finally we made our way down the lane, only to find a sign on the door saying 'Haunted Bookshop, Permanently closed'.Disappointing... more »
Just completed the haunted tour of Melbourne. 2 hours of entertainment and walking showing me a different side of Melbourne I would never have known about otherwise. Our tour guides delivery is an acquired taste, I thought he was fab! But can see why others may not be open to his quirky personality. Will be back next year!! On another note, Sadly tragic to see the demolition of so many of Melbourne's old buildings to make way for overseas investors.
Completed the Haunted Melbourne Ghost Tour last night, so what might you expect to see? Well visually no ghosts(well not on this occasion anyway), we spent a fair bit of time "lurking" in lane ways, looking at a half a dozen buildings, old and new where the tour guide suggested there had been "ghost sightings", all related to persons deceased historically, at those locations. The tour guide did his "best" to be entertaining via his tales, however I feel you might find him a little eccentric, and his communication technique lacking the ability to excite! Tour started at 8.45 pm from Mc Killop street and participants walk for 2 hours and perhaps 2 or so kilometers around what we come to understand via the tour guide, is the "older" part of Melbourne, finishing at the Melbourne Market. We started with about 30 or so people, with the tour ending with about 25 people as some left during the tour along the way. The historical information about Melbourne was interesting, and I guess I liken the "Ghost" part of it, to a tour where you get to find places that are suggested, "ghosts may dwell". By the end of the tour I felt there was a strong message that developers are busy tearing down historical buildings, to be replaced by new high rise monstrosities, taking away some of the heritage of our city. So "Ghost Hunters" if the goal is to see a ghost, I don't think this tour will do it for you, however the tour and content it is still interesting, if you want to know where "ghosts" may be hanging out?! I rated the experience *** stars. Hope this helps : )
