Free eerie night tours by lantern light
Every winter and spring there are eerie historical lantern tours of the Royal Melbourne Hospital at the Royal Park Campus. The origins of this hospital can be traced back to the gold rush of the early 1850s.
The tours are run by history buff and story-teller Jeff Whittington who is pictured above decked out in his frock coat, vest and top hat. Jeff worked for the hospital for over thirty years.
He shares wonderful stories of ghosts, graves and secret tunnels..
