Melbourne General Cemetery fascinating night tours
Time Out says
Melbourne General Cemetery's night tours bring history (and dearly departed souls) to life
Melbourne General Cemetery run night tours twice a month (except for in winter) as well as on key dates throughout the year. The team here like to make history fun and cemeteries less intimidating, so they bring their dearly departed residents back to “life” with the help of actors. You’ll meet Frederick Federici, the actor who died in 1888 during a performance of Faust, as well as the notorious Madam Brussels. Unsurprisingly Halloween is their busiest night of the year, with special spooky tours running. They also conduct Midsummer Night tours on the last Saturday in February, and Full Moon Night tours around Easter. Refreshments are included in the tour and bookings can be made online.
