Melbourne is teeming with ghosts. Well, so says Drew Sinton, occultist and host of the Haunted Melbourne Ghost Tour. Starting from his appropriately named Haunted Bookshop, the tour winds through the city's back streets. At each stop Mr. Sinton recounts stories of unnatural deaths and the scary antics of poor souls denied eternal rest. Among 60 reputedly haunted hot spots, are the Queen Victoria Market and Flagstaff Gardens (both former cemeteries) and the Princess Theatre. Whether or not you are lucky enough to have a ghostly encounter, this tour reveals a fascinating slice of Melbourne's history. To enjoy it most, come with comfortable shoes and an open mind. The tour starts at 8.30pm on Saturdays.
