One of Williamstown’s most evocative and exciting tours is ‘Ghosts of the Old City’, which explores King William’s Town, the original capital of Victoria, by lamplight. Steeped in history, apparitions, alleyways and lager, it was once a thriving town full of colourful ladies, drunken sailors and convicts. On the tour you can visit abandoned morgues, forgotten burial grounds and hidden laneways in Victoria’s most historic seaport. Visit Victoria’s oldest morgue and Australia’s Timeball Tower. The tour lasts approximately two hours and covers both indoors and outdoors. It’s a leisurely two kilometres of walking on flat paths with some stairs. Paranormal activity: High! Book Now!
