If you want to hear some BUMPS in the night, and meet the other residents in Launceston that you CAN'T see, then why not take the family on a journey with Launceston Ghost Tours?
Launceston has a fascinatingly deep and dark convict past. It's a past that was filled with torturous deaths (ouch!) and deaths filled with heartache and pain (double ouch!). Imagine the streets filled with murderers, petty thieves, and ill-treated slaves....doesn't sound too great a place to live does it!
Well, luckily for you, it's not like that anymore (it's actually very beautiful!) but the stories are still there to be heard...and perhaps seen! BOO!
Launceston Ghost Tours offer three tours, so you can pick which is the best option for your family.
There are adult ghost tours, then tours perfect for those younger kids (which are great for birthday parties too!), as well as educational tours.
The kids tour is based on the history of Tasmania, and includes a wide range of stories from the original plot
Throughout the tours, you will experience...screaming....and loud noises *shiver!*....and darkness....oooooh! Some of their guests have actually experienced unexplained paranormal feelings too!
The guides are great, and they know how to adapt the gore-level depending on the age of the audience. However, if you do have nervous children it might be best to look into it further as there are noises that might make them jump a little too high!
The walking on the tours is paced very easily, and they ensure there are plenty of stops to make sure it's suitable for all levels of mobility.
We hope you are ready to have a spooooky time - we know we are! BOO!
