Lantern Ghost Tours

Explore King William's Town, the original capital of Victoria, by lamp light on the Ghosts of The Old City Williamstown with Lantern Ghost Tours.

Steeped with history, apparitions, alleyways and lager it was once a thriving town full of colourful ladies, drunken sailors and convicts. Hear stories of a famous surgeon who caused more deaths than lives saved, an opera singer who still haunts their favourite haunt, bushrangers who hijacked an entire boat laden with gold and girls and lived happily ever after and the timeball tower ghosts. Visit hidden lanes, abandoned morgues and forgotten cemeteries to discover the darker side of one of Australia's most historic sea ports. Access haunted buildings not accessible to the public.

Lantern Ghost Tours is a multi-award winning ghost tour company taking you to Victoria's most haunted properties, contact them for more details.
