Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

We can't think of anything much more spooky than the creak of ancient timbers over the lapping of black waters as, high above, a mast rocks back and forth. No need to relegate that idea to the recesses of your imagination, because the crew of the Polly Woodside – the 127-year-old cargo ship docked at South Wharf – is offering you that very experience.

The Night Watchman will transport guests back in time on the Polly Woodside, regaling them with gruesome yarns and spilling some dark secrets about the ship... as well as revealing what can go wrong when you mess with maritime superstitions.

Run by the National Trust Victoria, the Night Watch Experience will run every Wednesday and Thursday from February 1 onwards. It's way too chilling for kids under the age of 12, they reckon, but all brave landlubbers above that age are welcome. National Trust members receive a 20% discount.
