Full description
Explore King William's Town, the original capital of Victoria, on a 2-hour walking tour accompanied by your very own ghost host.

Begin your evening at the Hobsons Bay Visitor Information Centre in historic Nelson Place, Williamstown, and meander through the hidden alleyways accompanied by your local guide as you try to feel the spirits and ghosts that make this district so notorious once upon a time.

Visit Victoria's oldest morgue, where the ghosts of children and young men still linger, and step into the opium den used in the Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries Series for a taste of 19th-century decadence. Next, make your way to the one remaining operational time ball tower in the entire world and meet the spirits who protect it.

Lisa (the guide) was very friendly and knowledgable. She really brought the olden days alive with the stories she told. Hearing the history attached to the buildings and sites was fascinating.
