Not your average ghost tour, this storytelling experience unveils the souls who float and have floated throughout the Hotel Esplanade, whilst exploring all five levels of the newly reopened hotel.
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.
Led by charismatic local storyteller Bo Svronos. Bo is a wordsmith, performer, researcher and fascinating mind. He has lived and worked in St Kilda, produced and directed 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.
