Featured guest review:

‘This was the most chilling, entertaining and educational ghost tour I have ever taken! There were no corny ‘jump scares’ or fakery — just the real deal! Our guide Alison knew her subject well and made sure we all had a great time. She handed out sets of divining rods during the tour so we could contact spirits directly. I found these fascinating and frighteningly accurate! Well done Alison, and thank you. We loved it!’ 921louise

What you can expect

Immerse yourself in a side of the New South Wales capital’s history that is rarely spoken of on this small group Haunted Sydney Ghost Tour through The Rocks precinct. This after-dark walking tour, led by an expert ‘ghost host’, will leave your spine tingling and your hair standing on end as you hear tale after infamous tale of events that have shocked Sydney and supposedly doomed those responsible to haunt the Harbour City forever.

You’ll meet your guide and fellow ghost busting guests at the historic Observer Hotel. As you set off through the darkened cobbled streets, your guide will provide entertaining and engrossing commentary about Sydney’s darkest chapters, and the extraordinary phantasmal phenomena associated with the oldest part of the city. [More]

Throughout this Haunted Sydney Ghost Tour you’ll hear recounts of unsolved murders and mysteries involving the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Dawes Point, Atherden Street, Susannah Place and the Orient Hotel. You’ll visit the hangouts of the notorious Rocks Push street gang of the late 1800s, and see the sites of former opium dens and sly-grog shops. You’ll navigate the dark maze of shadowy laneways, secret passages and empty backstreets — or are they…

With a relaxed pace and lots of stops along the way to hear stories from your ghoul-obsessed guide (and no doubt check over your shoulder!), this highly entertaining and informative Haunted Sydney Ghost Tour provides a very different perspective of the Harbour City.

    This was the most chilling, entertaining and educational ghost tour I have ever taken! There were no corny 'jump scares' or fakery — just the real deal! Our guide Alison knew her subject well and made sure we all had a great time. She handed out sets of divining rods during the tour so we could contact spirits directly. I found these fascinating and frighteningly accurate! Best of all, I felt Alison was respectful in speaking about people who had crossed over in tragic circumstances. Well done Alison, and thank you. We loved it!
