Melbourne General Cemetery's night tours bring history (and dearly departed souls) to life

Melbourne Cemetery run night tours twice a month (except for in winter) as well as on key dates throughout the year. Halloween is naturally one of their biggest tour nights and this year they’re enhancing the spooky experience. 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 so their are multiple tours available, starting at 7.20pm (there's also a children's tour at 7pm). Refreshments are included in the tour and bookings can be made online.
