Join the team at Twisted History for dinner and a paranormal investigation at the historic Kangaroo Hotel in Maldon

The Kangaroo Hotel opened in 1856, and today is the only Kangaroo Hotel in Australia.

Affectionately known as 'The Roo', the hotel started as a tent, before moved from nearby Fryerstown where a brick structure was erected. One of 40 pubs in the Maldon area and The Kangaroo has stood the test of time.

It has operated as the town morgue, a butcher shop, doctor's office, theatre and Cobb and Co. changing station.

You never know who you may encounter.

Twisted History will be reopening the Geelong Gaol and Bendigo Tours as of November 13, 2020. Other tours will return once dates are confirmed for 2021.

Come and get totally twisted at some great locations across Victoria and explore the darker side of history on a range of tours with Twisted History.

Join Twisted History at the Geelong Gaol, the longest continuously running 19th-century prison for ghost and investigation tours, seven nights a week.

If murder stories are more up your alley, the Chinatown Ghost Murder Tour will return in late 2021.

Perhaps a haunted hotel is more your pace. If so, join in on one of the combined dinner, history and investigation tours.

Or maybe a paranormal investigation in the town of Steiglitz or at Werribee Park in the original buildings.

If you are in Central Victoria they have the Castlemaine Cemetery Tour and the Bendigo Ghost Tour through the streets and Rosalind Park.

Their newest offerings are the Locked up with History online talks and Online Paranormal Investigations.

Keep an eye on their webpage for new upcoming tours.

Customised tours, private group and online tours are available - please contact Twisted History to discuss.
