Take a walk through Old Castlemaine Gaol by lantern light as your ghost host shows you the haunted side of Victoria. Travel back in time, chilled by haunting stories of prisoners, gangsters, and even cannibals.
Begin your evening adventure by meeting your host, who arrives dressed in a ghost costume. Make your way to the top of the hill, to the Old Castlemaine, which housed many of Australia's most notorious criminals. Go deep within the sandstone walls and hear infamous stories about the ghosts of convicts that still linger in their favorite city playground.
Visit the cell of serial killer Peter Dupas before you find yourself at the site where John Duffus was executed, the last man to be hanged in the prison. Afterward, stop at the area where at least 10 prisoners were buried within the walls, so their souls could never rest for the crimes they'd committed. As you continue your tour, make sure to spot the crosses and initials prisoners etched on the walls of solitary confinement cells, the only means of expression in the darkness.
