Enthusiasts of all things scary and mysterious, listen up.

The Australian National Maritime Museum has brought back (by popular demand) its Murder Mystery at Sea in a brand-new 1920s-style thriller. Dubbed “The Great Ratsby”, this adults-only adventure will take place onboard the SY Ena, one of the most luxurious Edwardian steam yachts in the world.

As for the storyline, it’s decked out with gangs, the plague, police and parties, and it’ll be up to you and your mates to unravel the mystery of a body found floating in Sydney’s harbour.

Once the body gets discovered, police and detectives arrive and you’ll have to help with the investigation by sussing out parts of the museum, back of house and loading dock for clues. True-crime fiends, this one is truly for you. 

There'll be two 90-minute evening sessions (one at 6pm and the other at 8pm) each night for three weeks kicking off Friday 10 January on Fridays and Saturdays. You can head here for more details.
