Where are we going today?

BOO! Now, don't be scared...yet. You haven't taken a ghost tour with Eerie Ghost Tours! Eerie Ghost Tours have a number of spooky yet fascinating experiences to introduce you to the other residents of Ballarat - Australia's most haunted city!

Over the years, Ballarat has had it's share of misery, blood, and tears across it's 150 year history. And now you get to hear all about the amazing history, stories and people....and ghosts!

How about we start with the Ballarat Old Cemetery Day Tour? The Ballart Old Cemetery opened all the way back in 1856, when it was a world-class gold rush cemetery.

It's now home to over 35,000 of Ballarat's builders, including those poor victims of the Eureka Stockade massacre. The tour is an easy walk, and a great way to hear all about the stories of the past!

If you want something a little more...spookier...then try the Ballarat Old Cemetery NIGHT Tour! Do you dare experience this historic cemetery in the dark?

The stories that Ballarat city itself could tell would fill many a book, so if you want to learn more about the history then Ballarat Ghost Tour is your thing. This city tour lets you spend an evening exploring the dark and paranormal as you travel through underground buildings, alleyways, and even the remains of the old Ballarat goal - the location of many execution in Victoria. 

If you are feeling peckish you can add a dinner onto this tour. 

Eerie Tours can give you history, spooks, and entertainment all rolled into one. Probably not suitable for the younger kids, but the rest of the family - if you dare - can have a BOOming time!

    Captain Bob is a good story teller, but he confuses the actual haunted history of Erie with other sites and stories. He changes locations of legends and does not check his stories.

Captain Bob is a good story teller, but he confuses the actual haunted history of Erie with other sites and stories. He changes locations of legends and does not check his stories. So if you feel like some time with a good story teller, this is for you. If you want stories that are not made up on the fly, or have any resemblance to historical fact, go elsewhere. He also claims to have a Ph.D. in the Paranormal, which no credentialed college offers. He claims it is from Duke University, but they only had one professor do psychic testing on students in the 60s and 70s, but NEVER offered a degree. Capt. Bob is a 21st century snake oil salesman. But he tells a good tale.
