Melbourne: Ghost City Self-Guided Exploration Game

2. Melbourne: Ghost City Self-Guided Exploration Game

Discover Melbourne’s dark history and attractions as you explore the city by playing a quest game with your friends and family. Each clue will lead you from one place to another by providing you with exact directions so you won't need a map, GPS, or guide. As you solve the problem and guess the answer, the secret story of that location is revealed to you. Discover the first train station built in Australia, learn about the story of the ghosts of the Princess Theatre and learn more about the infamous nude painting of Melbourne. Simply download the app, go to the starting point, and begin the adventure. The tour will take you about 1.5 hours to complete, but there’s no time limit that will allow you to go at your own pace. If you are a large group, one person can purchase access for the entire group by selecting the number of people in the group. All group members will be able to play the city game on their smartphone. You can play as a group and solve the clues together as you walk, or you can split into smaller teams and compete against each other.
