The Railway Hotel in Brunswick is a real historical gem from the 1880’s. A lot of its original charm still exists from the hidden guess life, attic accommodation and stables (outside bar). Being so close to the railway and the Brunswick brick work, bodies from accidents were brought and kept in the hotels cellar. Hotel claims to be very haunted.

On This Day ……. 12th May 1891

A heavily beard male lunatic, escaped from the Ararat Asylum, Victoria on the 12th of May 1891. After scaling the wall the man walked down the drive way and past the gate keepers house and onto the railway line. The man wandered along the railway line in the direction of Melbourne. He was finally recaptured after almost being hit by a train.
