Take a lantern-lit ghost tour of the Port Arthur Historic Site, one of the most haunted locations in Australia! Hear spooky tales about this UNESCO World Heritage-listed former penal colony, including chilling paranormal encounters from the present day, and enjoy after-hours access to Port Arthurs atmospheric grounds and buildings.
When the gates to Port Arthur Historic Site close to the general public, enter a haunted world on your lamp-lit, after-hours tour of one of Tasmania’s most famous World Heritage Sites.
With its ruins and remote location, spooky Port Arthur is tailor-made for ghost tours. The ghoulish stories youll hear date from 1870 to much more recent times — more than 2,000 paranormal experiences have been encountered in almost 25 years of ghost tours held at Port Arthur. Chances are, you might be next to come face-to-face with a ghost at this poignant and tragic site!
With only the light of lanterns to guide you — and the shadows of eerie ruins looming at every step — its easy to feel the presence of souls long gone. Hear tales of disembodied voices, ghostly footsteps and apparitions as you visit approximately half the historic site, taking in the 19th-century penal settlement buildings and grounds.
At the end of the tour, safely returned to the bright lights of the visitor center, youll receive a Certificate of Bravery and Courage as a reminder of your spine-chilling tour of one of Australias most haunted sites.
