The Haunted Bookshop is a carefully curated collection by passionate historian Drew Sinton. This is not a job for him - it is his life’s work. He is unique and impressively knowledgeable. A bit of a recluse, Drew comes alive when sharing his lovely world....More

I read all the bad reviews, and was almost going to believe them but decided to go anyway and had the most amazing time. Finding the bookstore is amazing, and to be honest having the store open before or after the adventure would make the...More

Waaaaay too many people! Could not hear the host over so many voices talking amongst themselves. We lasted an hour before we gave up due to not being able to hear. Perhaps much smaller groups (less than 20) would create better reviews. The small amount...More

Less scary than my grandmother. Boring and a waste of money, try going to Ararat instead for ghost tours that are better. The host is also a fake with no real experience of the occult or supernatural.

A tour where you learn about the dark history of Melbourne. It is not really scary, but quite interesting.

city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
