Built in the mid-1800s, Labassa Mansion has seen wealthy families, prominent socialites, world war heroes, refugees and artists, like the Australian-born star of Hollywood’s silent era Louise Lovely, call the 35-room residence home. But now it is home to an interactive and immersive Murder Mystery experience where players get to roam its rooms and search for clues in order to solve the crime.
Labassa is a Victorian-era mansion in Caulfield North complete with opulent architectural features like gilt embossed wallpapers, stained glass windows and a rare trompe l’oeil ceiling. It has survived name changes, transformations and more than 100 residents in its 150-plus-year history.
Since falling into decay, the interiors of the main rooms have been restored to their former glory. Now, Labassa is one of the few surviving nineteenth-century mansions in Victoria and the most lavish. It is the perfect setting for the immersive and interactive murder mystery experience in Melbourne that has so far drawn hundreds of participants to its lavish lounges in the search for the truth.

Over the course of 90 minutes, you and your team will explore multiple rooms and interrogate suspects to solve the mystery because even the ugliest secrets can’t be hidden forever.
Do you have what it takes to put two and two together or will the true assassin/s escape justice?
