Ghost sightings Melbourne: Luna Park, Hosier Lane, home to phantom spirits
Leader July 16, 2020
A phantom fisherman casts his line from Flinders Street Station’s platform 10. A short stroll away, a man once suspected of being Jack the Ripper haunts Hosier Lane. These are two of the ghosts haunting Melbourne. You just need to know where to look.

* FLINDERS STREET STATION By day it’s a major transport hub with all the grime, hustle and bustle you’d expect at an inner-city train station. By night it’s home to the ghost of a fisherman who casts his line from platform 10.
Station staff and travellers alike have spotted the ghostly figure — nicknamed George — clutching his fishing rod as he gazes out across the Yarra River.
There’s a theory George drowned in the Yarra, once a popular fishing spot, but who he is, how he died and why he spends his afterlife loitering around a train station remains a mystery.
Whatever the story, keep an eye out for George the next time you take a train to Williamstown, Werribee or Flemington Racecourse at night.

* LUNA PARK A trickster ghost is said to keep patrons on their toes at Luna Park.
The story behind the “Joker Ghost” of Luna Park remains a mystery.
While you might expect him to haunt the ghost train, the male spectre prefers to ride the scenic railway or ferris wheel.
Word has it one of the men who helped construct the big dipper — a roller coaster now demolished — saw a pair of eyes peering over a roof, but when he investigated, there was no one there.
The apparition is known to suddenly appear beside people on certain rides.
The mischievous prankster ghost has often been seen standing on the scenic railway as the car approached, or surprised unwary visitors by appearing beside them on the ferris wheel.
There are a few theories as to who the ghost may be — a snake charmer killed by his own snake in 1913, a man killed by a fall from the scenic railway in the 1920s — but whoever he is, the apparition has been known to provided an added thrill to the St Kilda park.
