Event Details

Ghost tour meets historical tale. Explore the 140-year-old iconic Hotel Esplanade through the lens of the paranormal.

Not your average ghost tour, this storytelling experience unveils the souls who float and have floated throughout the Hotel Esplanade, whilst exploring the newly reopened hotel.

VENUE

Classified by the National Trust of Australia, the Hotel Esplanade is one of the earliest and most prominent 19th-century resort hotels in Victoria. From seaside resort to live music institution, these walls bare the hallmarks of ghostly potential. The hotel has housed and hosted many famous (and infamous) residents, visitors and musicians, none-the-least Alfred Felton; Australia’s largest ever philanthropist to the arts, whose spirit still permeates the pub.

GUIDE
Led by charismatic local storyteller Bo Svoronos. A wordsmith, performer, researcher and fascinating mind, Bo weaves together insightful stories of mystery and intrigue with a touch of humour. Having lived and worked in St Kilda since the mid-nineties, Bo has independently produced and co-directed two St Kilda Writers' Festivals, numerous Yalukit Wilum Ngargee festivals for the City of Port Phillip (amongst many other hats) and spent his fair share of time frequenting The Espy.
