What is there to do?

BOO! Don't be scared....much! Port Arthur Ghost Tours will take you on a journey to see another side of Port Arthur - the most haunted convict site in the entire country! Spooky!

As night falls, the lanterns will draw you in to hear tales of long, long ago....and some of those residents who still linger today!

Port Arthur Ghost Tours are a fun, and unique addition to your visit to the area. The history of Port Arthur is so fascinating, and a very important part of Australian history. This adds a bit extra to your history lesson!

You black-cloaked guide will take you through the streets, re-counting stories that have actually been documented. You will hear about spooky sightings, and unexplained mysteries of the past. They might even reveal strange occurrences during Port Arthur's history, and events that baffled even the convicts!

Did you know that there have been documented ghost stories associated with the Port Arthur area since 1870? Surely all those people can't be wrong! This was even when the prison was still in operation (which isn't surprising, seeing as over 1000 people died at the prison during it's 47 year history).

This ghost tour is a "must do" for visitors experiencing Port Arthur. What's great about these tours, is that the guides have exclusive access to the site (that's World Heritage listed!) so you won't be bombarded by other tours and crowds.

The tours are best for older kids due to the darkness and the content. If you have more mature younger kids, they might enjoy it but use discretion.
